East Central Regional Hospital’s Cafeteria:
Once in a Blue Moon Interior Lighting Design with Lumetta’s Colorful L2 Tapers
“Good things are associated with blue, like clear days. Just the word ‘blue’ in the singular is full of optimism and positive connotation to most people.” ― David Carson, American Art Director
East Central Regional Hospital, located in Georgia, is a two-campus facility, providing services for people living with developmental disabilities in a skilled nursing setting.
The medical facility’s dining area recently experienced a major renovation and the transformation, which now includes 180 indoor dining seats and serves 460 patients and staff daily, is nothing short of stunning. The lighting was to be an integral part of the new design and for this reason Lumetta’s L2 Taper lighting was specified to give the surroundings an ethereal atmosphere.
Lumetta’s L2 lighting collection is highly regarded as it offers full creative expression and allows you to pair complementary or contrasting interior and exterior Lumenate® shades for an eye-catching combination. Lumenate® is a material used for our diffusers and shades which is antimicrobial and washable–crucial requirements in hospital and other healthcare facilities’ lighting fixture specifications.
The lighting acts as both illumination and guide. The color and design follow the curves of the ceiling design to navigate users through the space. The larger brightly colored fixtures fill the generous space’s volume and draw the user’s eye upward. Designers chose blue and green to create a fresh, welcoming feeling for both staff and patients, as well as to play off the other finishes in the space. These areas are now brighter, happier, more functional rooms thanks to the Interiors Department at Dickinson Architects and Lumetta’s magical luminaires.
