Today we are publishing another inspiring project that won Lumen Award 2009 Merit Award – Casino of the Winds by Focus Lighting.
A description by Focus Lighting follows:
The design at Casino of the Wind evokes a dreamy windswept landscape. An undulating sculptural wall surrounds the space, while the upper volume is laced with 4 manifestations of winds: cloud chandeliers, glittering chrome leaves, fabric hangings and fluttering wings.
To achieve this while keeping the space energy-efficient, many sources were LED or Metal Halide.
This allowed us to build up layers of colored light, while keeping wattage minimal.
Dim lighting levels were set by screening the halide accents with wire mesh, while in many of the custom fixtures, low accessibility required LED fixtures with an estimated 10-year life.
