These awards recognize and celebrate each year's visionaries and best projects in the lighting industry.

Located at the iconic Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club, this chic rooftop bar offers panoramic views of the creek in a relaxing and refined setting. The design, organic and multifunctional, provided immense possibilities in terms of lighting design and user perception
The soft delineation of the stylish white furniture combined with the bold backlit effect on the bar counter creates a soothing and welcoming atmosphere, perfect for sunset drinks or an intimate dinner. This scenery is enhanced with subtle table effects and delicate visual lighting backdrops. In contraposition, a second layer of lighting composed by colour-changing gear, transforms the rooftop into a lively setting, worthy of Dubai's vibrant night scene. Selected architectural elements shift colours at the pulse of the music, converting the place into a truly sophisticated and cosmopolitan night spot.
The selected light sources were entirely LED, comprising of strips, modules, spotlights, floor markers, spikes and projectors. Furthermore, the ice buckets were illuminated with mobile rechargeable pool lights, to visually enhance the tasting experience. The installed load for the entire lounge is of 5.52 W/m.
This comprehensive lighting scheme together with a smart control strategy, are capable of providing completely different scenarios in a single place, supporting the diverse uses throughout the night and keeping guests constantly stimulated.
