burgundy wine bar and restaurant beirut – lighting project by pslab




lebanese studio pslab have sent in images of their latest lighting project they developed for burgundy wine bar and restaurant located in beirut. the design consists of a wooden substructure of arched beams that cut through a wire mesh, which covers the ceiling. the setting of the space underneath is functionally divided into two sections: a bar area and a dining area. highlighting the dual function, the lighting objects are set on two parallel axes over these two sections. suspended from the arcs, each light object is a set of conical tubes conceived to fill a circular-shaped area.


clustering in the circle, the tubes start at the center; moving radially, where they begin to deviate at an angle of 25 degrees to reach an angle of 45 degrees. this deviation renders a chandelier-like object, with a bottom curved outline opposite to that of the ceiling. the cluster of the tubes housing the bulbs creates an effect of a singular light source being filtered. the entrance is lit by a set of black projectors also using the arched beams for fixation; the groove in the beams encloses the technical parts box, while the head of the projector is left loose to rotate shedding light in different directions.
