Focus Lighting in New York have recently completed a 6-month long, ten-million dollar renovation of Jay Z’s iconic 40/40 club along with Architect and Interior Designer, Jeffrey Beers.
Their lighting design draws visitors toward the 18-foot-tall Champagne tower at the center of the main room using low profile LED light strips installed within the shelves. They created full scale mockups which resulted in a design that incorporates the lights in front of and behind the bottles, with a background of mirrors covered with a metallic screen. These combine with the reflectivity of the bottles to create a glittering centerpiece. The resin bar top surrounding it is illuminated using two rows of lensed LED strips precisely placed at the back edge of the resin to produce a warm, even glow, punctuated by the sparkle of the cracked resin.
