A top producer of GaN on GaNTM LED technology, Soraa has supplied LED lamps to the Hotel Stage located in the center of Kowloon, Hong Kong. The Hotel Stage is not just a hotel but a tranquil retreat in the bustling neighborhood of Yau Ma Tei. The place is also a stage for local artists to display their craft.
Keen on promoting local art, the Hotel Stage was on the lookout for energy efficient lighting that could provide the hotel’s extraordinary communal spaces with a serene and relaxing atmosphere while accurately rendering the colors of the art work.
The Hotel Stage took the assistance of Koichi Tanaka, a lighting designer at LIGHTLINKS, who selected about two thousand of Soraa VIVID lamps to light up the distinctive conversation spaces and showcase the art pieces.
Soraa’s compactly controlled beam distribution helped to increase the attention of the guests to the art pieces against a backdrop of hotel’s minimalist design. Soraa’s Point Source Optic technology is facilitated by the company’s GaN on GaN™ LED to clearly light up any area with just one sharp shadow, thereby providing unmatched depth and contrast.
The undeniable benefit for using Soraa LED lamps is that we can render all materials with true colour. This was of the upmost importance to us for both the hotel application and to accurately illuminate the artwork.
Koichi Tanaka, CEO, LIGHTLINKS International Limited
Soraa’s lights can illuminate in every color of the rainbow, in particular deep red emission, which offers warm tones magnificently and precisely, and attain a color-rendering index of 95 and deep red (R9) rendering of 95. Furthermore, Soraa’s lamps have violet emission in order to correctly excite fluorescing brightening components in paper, paints, and textiles. This unique feature is not found in blue-based white LEDs which do not possess any violet/ultra-violet emission.
