How to manage the lighting of a hotel

Knowing the importance of lighting for an hotel and the sector trends is essential to approach a complete lighting project for hotels.

Hospitality is a world in continuous evolution and, compared to the past, the change seems to have become even faster, so much so that hotels must constantly update, renew themselves, adapting to the changes underway.

A good hotel must be able to make the guest feel at home, with a warm and hospitable atmosphere.

The lighting of the hotel contributes significantly to the experience of the guest, not so much for the function related to visibility, but for the emotions that it is able to arouse.

The atmosphere you need to recreate with the right lights must be welcoming, pleasant and functional, so as to allow guests to easily and comfortably orient themselves in any space of the hotel.

For example, the lobby of a hotel, often considered a crossing point, a simple transit to reach the rooms or other areas of the structure, is actually a very important space, as it provides the first impression of the structure, makes guests understand where they are, the tone and type of hotel.

The light will be able to convey exactly the image that the hotel wants to give its guests.

Therefore, designing the right lighting is essential: depending on the identity of the hotel, you can choose to light up the reception desk with a scenic installation, as in the case of Vollee, or by using a solution with a simpler but still impactful form, as in the case of Libe.

In public areas such as a lounge it is important to recreate an intimate and relaxing atmosphere, so the light will have to ensure the right lighting without being too strong.

On a stylistic side one can dare in some cases to work with contrasts, inserting more classic chandeliers such as Crek in modern contexts.

In the rooms, however, the light must take on a more practical but flexible role. It should be possible to adjust it according to your needs. Adopting a lighting system that can adapt to the needs of the guest, means allowing him to recreate in an autonomous and impromptu way the atmosphere most pleasing to him. Iglù is perfect thanks also to the system of dimerability, which will allow the guest to adjust the intensity of the light according to his needs.

In corridors, the light must be functional to identify the path to the rooms, stairs, or access to elevators, so it is necessary to vary the lighting levels, often mixing technical lighting with decorative lighting, in order to ensure the right lighting with even a dose of design.

Iglù is a transversal collection, which finds its correct application even in the case of a corridor of a hotel, being able to manage the length of the cables as appropriate.

Restaurant lighting, how to better manage the light points

Establishing the lighting of a restaurant is one of the crucial steps to making the space unique and sophisticated. Follow our tips to make the most of the room and tables. 

Who is collecting ideas for decorating the dining room of a restaurant should always keep in mind the importance of lights. Their location, intensity, choice of design lamps and chandeliers have a huge impact on the overall allure of the space. 

To find the perfect lamps for a restaurant room, you need to keep in mind different elements and mix them tastefully into the decor of the entire room.

The lighting technology like the choice of the lights position inside a space, is part of the interior design of the dining room since the first drafts. To renovate a restaurant or create it from scratch, thinking about lights is indispensable. 

Three key elements must be keep in mind: 

• the style of the general furnishing; 
• the atmosphere you want to give to the restaurant; 
• the concrete role of the chosen lamps. 

If it is true that a restaurant needs a cozy and sometimes romantic atmosphere, it is equally true that diners need a functional light to enjoy the dishes that will be served to them.

So be careful not to leave the lighting of a restaurant entirely to the ambient lights, the soft ones that create atmosphere. It is very important to have direct lights such as pendant lamps on each table, to allow moments of conviviality among diners. 

At the moment when the ideas for furnishing the restaurant are established, identifying the points of entry of natural light and the degree of exposure of the environment is useful for several reasons. Natural light can be used in some hours of the day, especially if the restaurant has large windows and a beautiful view, while in other situations it should be screened, with blackout curtains or impalpable fabrics according to the atmosphere you want to create.

Where natural light is lacking, the restaurant’s lighting becomes even more important. Those who create the project of the dining room will have to provide several lamps and chandeliers to allow a lit and welcoming space to the diners of each table. 

A beautiful idea for the lighting of the restaurant are the chandeliers, large or small or multiple. Choosing them in harmony with other furniture ideas will allow you to have a harmonious and elegant room.

For example, in a contemporary-style dining room with golden details, the Honicè suspension will look great, both on the bar counter and on the individual tables. The linear shape of the painted metal frame in an elegant matt gold is made precious by the diffusers in natural onyx slabs. 

The Cupole, characterized by an essential design but made unique by the double internal/ external finish, will be the optimal choice for common areas of restaurants with large surfaces.

A restaurant with a glam taste can be perfectly illuminated by Posy, which with its minimal and refined shape elegantly illuminates the tables.

and Oriano Favaretto, a partnership already tested thanks to Honicè and Ribbon, signed by the designer for Masiero.

The two collections are presented in the Dimore catalogue, completely renewed in look, designed by Artemio Croatto and his staff from the Designwork studio.

The creative direction of the shots was entrusted to NOOII Agency, the print to the professionalism of Grafiche Antiga.

Our new catalogue is the result of the collaboration of professional people inside and outside the company, who have worked with passion and dedication and that is why we are thrilled to present it!

What is dimmable light?

What is dimmable? Dimmability is a LED technology that allows you to adjust the intensity of light. It represents an innovative way of managing light in domestic spaces and beyond.

The adjective dimmerabile comes from the Anglo-Saxon language and means “lower”. Thanks to this technology, the intensity of light can therefore be adjusted, ensuring maximum luminous comfort in domestic and public spaces, all managed through analog or wireless solutions.

It’s enough a touch to have a light more or less intense: the space adapts to your needs changing shape based on your wishes and needs.

The use of dimmable integrated LED lamps is perfect for areas such as the living room, the relaxation area, the study or the bedroom, as well as for the dining room of a restaurant or a lounge bar. The whole mood of the room changes as the intensity of the light changes, creating new light and shadow effects.

Masiero has used dimmable light technology in different collections, whether in suspension and ceiling lamps, wall lamps or floor lamps, allowing full autonomy in the management of ambient lighting

For example, with the suspensions and wall lamps from the Honicé collection by Oriano Favaretto, the simplicity of the lines is reflected on the walls, creating different reflections based on the intensity of light. Honicè is an illuminated sculpture perfect for the living room, to which it will give preciousness and refinement.

Cupole design by Marco Zito is also part of the led dimmable suspension lamps. This chandelier that recalls the domes of the bell towers of the Venetian churches, creates a play of light thanks to the construction that provides a double light source, one in the lantern and one in the dome.

The light emanating from this lamp recalls the glimpses of light coming from the churches and becomes even more soft and romantic lowering the intensity, until it becomes a halo of light that warms the corners of the home.

You can also choose the dimmable light for the reading area, close to your favourite armchair.

Sound floor lamp design by Giovanni Battista Gianola, will be an elegant piece of furniture that will guide you in your favourite readings.

If you love to read in bed, Horo’s table lamp design by Pierre Gonalons will bring a touch of design to your room, making the atmosphere elegantly restful.
