2016 Design Problem
Design a decorative vanity light fixture for the restrooms of a high-end sushi restaurant. Both the restaurant and restrooms exhibit a Japanese aesthetic and elegance. It is important that faces look beautiful, so color quality, glare, and modeling of light on the face are critical. Provide details on how and where the luminaire is mounted relative to the mirrors, counters, and sinks. This restaurant is located in California and energy use is an important consideration, so your fixture should use energy-efficient light sources. Incorporate controls into your design scheme. Do not use self-ballasted lamps and other retrofit lamps that fit into incandescent screw base sockets. Identify all major components and materials of the fixture. Document the fixture as instructed under the Competition Rules.
