through LIGHT. AppleBar by A+I

The Applebar interior design is a chameleon. A space that during the day has a bright and candid hotel atmosphere in the evening transforms itself into a cosy and intimate interior. A transformation that the Moscow-based architecture studio A+I achieved through light…In the morning a white Corian® iceberg fills the bar with light and the white walls and furniture in the restaurant reflect the daylight filtering through the windows. When the night falls, lights are dimmed and the space is fragmented into islands of light by the spots placed above the tables. The white glare of the iceberg becomes a feeble glow of ruby or emerald, and the windows and white walls in the restaurant disappear behind a curtain which portrays shadows of an apple orchard. The curtain is backlit by the colors of the fading day, white light turning to red, followed by blue.

In the bar, general lighting is achieved by the bar stand lit with 3 rows of T5 fluorescent lamps of white 4000K, green and red colour. The light emitted by the bar stand is integrated with the warm light of the QR-CB51 50W 3000K 60° lamps reflected by the sand coloured drapes running on the perimeter walls. Accent lighting is obtained with decorative Murano glass suspensions with 100W 3000K matt incandescent lamps, and recessed fittings with plaster rings (Krypton Plus - Targetti) housing QR-LP 50W 3000K 45° lamps.In the Restaurant, general lighting is provided by the built in RGB 3x28W asymmetric wall washers (Light Navigator – Targetti) placed behind the curtain. Accent lighting is obtained with built in fittings (KR1 - Targetti) housing 2x50W QR-LP 45° lamps placed above the restaurant tables.All fittings are dimmable and are regulated by a centralized light control panel.
