Concept: Finding common design and visual elements that connect Eastern and Southern Japanese designs with the colors and vivid emotions of Samba in Cuba and Brazil.
Challenge: Filling the space with color and light in a way that created special seating areas for a wonderful and culturally rich dining experience. The restaurant also required the appropriate working light for the sushi bar area and ambient light that would be suitable for guests to enjoy both their meals and the visual elements of the interior design.
Solution: The RTLD team created a combination of various "Samba" light elements. A big colored-glass wall with even back-lighting served as the main lighting element of the restaurant. Significant red-colored light emanated from behind cut-out wood panels, invoking a warm and inviting ambience. Direct halogen lights were also included in the architectural lighting design in order to highlight the tables and bar area.
