Karizma Luce is the obvious choice for atmospheric restaurant lighting. At the moment, the Stretto is one of the most popular track spots in the hospitality industry. Lighting consultant Richard van Plaggenhoef of Create Light from Lelystad, in collaboration with Wim de Pruis of technical installation consultancy agency Bakker TIB, installed these spotlights in Narline in Zuidwolde, a restaurant located in a historic farm dating from 1768.
Enhance the ambience
According to Richard van Plaggenhoef of Create Light, the priorities for the restaurant were atmosphere and flexibility: “Of course, the restaurant is already full of atmosphere, which is mainly down to its centuries-old beams. What we wanted to do, was to enhance this ambience using dim-to-warm lighting. It was also very important for the restaurant that everything remained flexible, so that changes can be made when an event or wedding takes place. Another express wish was the use of DALI lighting control.”
Challenge of a high slanted ceiling
According to Richard, the biggest challenge of the building was in the height of the ceiling: not only was it tall, but it was also slanted. On top of that, you also have to take into account the old beams. By using tracks with the Stretto track spots attached, we found the perfect solution. Thanks to the integrated driver and 3-phase adapter, the Stretto is both compact, versatile, and stylish.”
The flexibility of Karizma Luce Stretto
The Karizma Luce Stretto (which means ‘sleek’) is available with a 20° or 36° lens, can be tilted up to an angle of 90° and rotated up to 350°, offering more than enough flexibility for a setting like this. Extra narrow light beams have been selected for the Narline restaurant, along with a golden front ring on the Stretto for an extra refined touch. The result? Richard: “A restaurant full of atmosphere, with flexible lighting, and a very satisfied customer!”
