We can never say no to margaritas and Mexican food so were delighted to recently design the architectural lighting design scheme for Chilango – a fun, vibrant Mexican restaurant chain in the capital.
Working closely with the interior designers and client we created a bold and exciting lighting design solution to express the brand’s spirit and add some zest to the customer experience. The lighting may be simple and cost-effective but it complements the bright, colourful interior and oozes Latin charm.
Feature pendants were used to create an ambient, relaxing atmosphere and low-energy spotlights were used for accent illumination. Bright neon signage hangs across the restaurant’s walls bringing some Mexican pizazz to the interiors.
