As a world renowned music and entertainment brand, Buddha Bar were looking for a dramatic lighting design for their flagship London restaurant.


For an immediate visual impact, Tibbatts | Abel specified two bespoke crystal dragon chandeliers to hang through the main space from the ground floor to the basement floor. These were lit carefully with high-powered RGBW LED projectors from beneath, which have bespoke anti-glare louvres. Elsewhere LED tape and further projectors highlight the plush materials and various wood materials. The full height of the space with varied ceiling heights is lit considerately, and has low-glare halogen spotlights on track and drop rods from above.


For complete flexibility for the client RGB LED colour-changing lighting throughout can be controlled from an LCD plate in the venue, which offers complete control over all lighting scenes and theatrical effects.
