Tell us about a project where you used Luminii products.
I used a lot of Luminii products in the Deep Dive bar space in Seattle a couple years ago. The space is relatively closed off from daylight but operational both during daylight and late night hours, so there was a relatively abrupt transition from a bright, daylit environment and the darker, speakeasy-like bar interior. This drove us to use tunable white light to soften the transition from the bright outdoors to a darker bar interior.
Tell us about the techniques you applied to bring the project vision to life.
We used tunable white fixtures to change both color temperature and intensity throughout the day, so that the space adapts to changing exterior conditions and provides a comfortable environment during all hours of operation.
What were some of your client’s goals for the space?
“Beautiful, warm light” and a focus on the curated artworks—as well as the mixologist staff.
How did you apply Luminii’s products to achieve these goals?
Fixtures were integrated with casework and ceiling features to illuminate artwork and create ambient light in the space.
What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them?
Meeting the energy code. We balanced art lighting with functional lighting to meet code requirements.
What makes this project stand out from others you’ve designed?
All of the integrated lighting was very well installed. The electrician and millworker worked wonderfully together and really cared about the details.
Which Luminii products did you use for this project?
VintageDim 2 and tunable white LED strips in Kendo Small channels. DMX drivers were also used to ensure smooth transitions between scenes.
What do you enjoy most about using Luminii’s product line?
It’s a simple, straightforward product that performs well, and the manufacturer support is great.
How would you describe your experience working with the Luminii team?
Support is always great and they are always open to modifications or special needs…which we tend to have a lot of.
