Wasabi restaurants have recently come over from Japan and their popularity is rising rapidly. They specialise in refreshing tastes from the east, mainly sushi. Wasabi has come to London to inspire and bring calm to the everyday hustle and bustle of the capital’s streets.
The interior of Wasabi restaurants are clean and crisp and they have a modern feel to them. Wasabi contacted Zeta to see if they could improve the look of their restaurants even further with products from their extensive range of LED lighting.
Wasabi has a vast menu to choose from, bearing this in mind they need to make it clear and obvious to the customers. To illuminate the content and show it in its best light, Zeta provided Wasabi with their energy efficient, white MK-MSL light guide panels. These panels were placed behind menus and also behind other advertising signage such as current promotional offers.
Wanting to continue with their modern look, Wasabi have decided to use Zeta’s low powered strip lighting. The LEDs used are bright and available in many colours. The strips were used within counters and along walls to enhance the restaurant’s architectural features whilst providing the restaurant with a professional look.
To illuminate the rest of the restaurant Wasabi have decided to use Zeta’s LED ceiling tiles. The LED ceiling tiles are an ideal replacement of traditional ceiling tile lights because they are low power and offer a bright and even array of light.
Wasabi have also decided to replace their 50w down-lighters with Zeta’s 3w MR16 down-lighters. The down-lighters would be beneficial replacement as they use less energy than the existing down-lighters used and like the LED ceiling panels they will save on electricity costs.
After the success of the trial in one Wasabi restaurant in London, Wasabi have decided to refurbish their entire restaurant chain using all of the mentioned LED lighting solutions; which includes 20 existing stores in London and 20 new stores currently planned for in London.
