Restaurant La Rive is one of the leading dining locations in the Netherlands. Not only has it earned a Michelin star, but it also received the Golden Green Key award in 2010 for its environmental efforts. Could a new lighting system meet the restaurant’s high standards for sustainability and quality?
Maintaining a welcome atmosphere was vital. To replace the existing 50w halogen bulbs in the lamps, MASTER LED 10w bulbs were chosen. These lights create the same brightness as halogen bulbs, but the energy consumption is 80% lower.
The chandelier bulbs were replaced with Novallure lights. These innovative LED fixtures, designed especially for decorative lighting, provide the same warm glow as traditional bulbs. However, they use less energy, and emit virtually no heat, helping to keep costs low.
The new lamps have maintained the atmosphere that the restaurant so carefully created. They have also helped to reach sustainability goals thanks to the energy-efficient performance of LED. The life cycle of the new lights is around 30,000 hours, compared to 2,000 for halogen. This reduces replacement costs considerably. In addition, the low heat emissions of LED mean that air conditioning is used less, delivering further savings.
