Dynamic DUO: GE Lamps Offer Maui Restaurant the Flexibility to Choose Between Multiple Lighting Designs
Serving tables and buffet tables sparkle under pools of light from GE Precise™ IR 37-watt MR16 lamps in regressed fixtures with soft-focus lenses and honeycomb louvers that reduce glare. Dimmable 3000 K white LEDs highlight the dish compartments and enhance exquisite, dual-color mother-of-pearl detailing.
The wine bar features the same lighting approach as the buffet tables. Blue, blown-glass pendants with GE T10 40-watt incandescent lamps provide contrast with the warm environment.
The dimming preset control system provides four scenes for cleaning, daytime, evening and late-night activities. This system saves energy, increases halogen lamp life, and simplifies day-to-day operations.
"GE's lighting solution offers DUO a great deal of flexibility," explains Mary Beth Gotti, manager of the GE Lighting & Electrical Institute. "The staff has the ability to completely change the interior atmosphere at the touch of a switch, which allows the restaurant to seamlessly shift to whatever environment is most appropriate at a given time."
This lighting project is among several recognized during the 2007 GE Edison Awards held in May 2008.
