jing restaurant


ArchDaily has posted an excellent little restaurant called Jing in Singapore, by architect Antonio Eraso.  I especially love the use of planar light sources, contrasted against the triangulated topography of the suspended ceiling structure.

I argue that all lighting can be conceptually boiled down to points, lines and planes.  And planar light sources are an ever-more-popular area of exploration for architects and lighting designers alike.  This project sets up a wonderful contrast between the big, soft planes of light in the center of the space, versus the darker banquet area, where concealed point-source downlights are used to highlight the tables and suspended mobile sculptures.  Very elegant composition.
