Burgundy Wine Bar/Restaurant Lighting by PSLAB

PSLAB, a Lebanese company who design and build site-specific lighting, have completed a lighting project for the Burgundy wine bar/restaurant in Beirut, Lebanon.

Description from PSLAB:

A lighting project for a wine bar/restaurant having a substructure of wooden arched beams cutting through a wire mesh covering the ceiling. The setting of the space underneath the substructure is functionally divided into two sections: a bar area and a dining area. Highlighting the dual function, the lighting objects are set on two parallel axes over these two sections.

Suspended from the arcs, each light object is a set of conical tubes conceived to fill a circular-shaped area. Clustering in the circle, the tubes start at the center; moving radially, they begin to deviate at an angle of 25 degrees to reach an angle of 45 degrees. This deviation renders a chandelier-like object, with a bottom curved outline opposite to that of the ceiling. The cluster of the tubes housing the bulbs creates an effect of a singular light source being filtered.

The entrance is lit by a set of black projectors also using the arched beams for fixation; the groove in the beams encloses the technical parts box, while the head of the projector is left loose to rotate shedding light in different directions.

The Tote Mumbai by Serie Architects

UK architects Chris Lee and Kapil Gupta of Serie Architects have designed ‘The Tote’, a banquet hall, restaurant and bar. Their brief was to incorporate a series of disused buildings from the city’s colonial past set within the Mumbai race course and convert them to form a series of restaurant and bars.
The interesting aspect of the site, however, lied not in the colonial buildings but in the open spaces covered by mature rain trees. These spaces are shaded throughout the year by the thinly wide spread leaves of the rain trees, allowing almost the entire proposed program to occur outdoors.
The interior of the lounge bar on the upper level is an intricate arrangement of 3-dimensional, faceted wooden panelling, acoustically treated with sound proofing material. The pattern of the panelling is a series of trees with intersecting branches.
