Saffron restaurant at Atlantis, The Palm, has had a fabulous makeover that will ensure it continues as Dubai’s number one spot for brunch. With a bright, fresh and stylish feel, the newly renovated space encourages guests to sit back and soak up the popular dining experience.
Throughout the buffet-style Asian restaurant, the lighting scheme has been designed to complement the interior design and provide flexibility. Emphasis was placed on showcasing key decorative features, while implementing a practical lighting solution. Creating a harmonious shift between the breakfast and evening dining experiences was a priority and the lighting ensures an atmospheric and dynamic setting.
Low-glare gimbal downlights were installed to provide a base level of functional lighting and flexibility – these can be re-directed as and when required. Low-level illumination is a feature throughout the space, the detailing of which has been cleverly concealed to prevent unsightly reflections on the multitude of reflective surfaces, while still providing the required output and effect. Other lighting elements within shelving units and certain decorative fixtures provide another layer of accent lighting, which enhances the luxurious and atmospheric dining space.
Whether it’s bright breakfasts, lively brunches, or moody dinners, the mix of cove lighting, decorative feature lights, integrated lighting in joinery and hidden low-level illumination creates the perfect ambiance for each occasion.
