Peter Pane is owned by the company Paniceus Gastro Systemzentrale based in Lübeck, Germany. It is a very successful restaurant chain in Germany and they were awarded “the most popular burger chain” in 2019. The annual growth is estimated at 10 openings per year.
Like the fairytale, Peter Pane never wants to grow up, meaning to continuously learn and develop.
The previous lighting concept at the Peter Pane restaurants did not provide an inviting atmosphere. There were no exciting lighting accents and no special effects. The decorative luminaires were very uninteresting.
The mission was to develop a new lighting concept that supported the interior and the story of Peter Pane.
In the Peter Pane project the environmental impact was an important factor. All lighting is LED and can be dimmed according to the needs of the location, also responding to different light situations during day or season. This results in energy efficiency and leads to a lower energy consumption.
ITAB Prolight Germany developed a custom lighting concept with the main purpose to bring the fairy-tale atmosphere alive, transporting guests into the Peter Pan story.
In general, a warm atmosphere was created by using “dim-to-warm” luminaires. For a dynamic effect, lighting accents were directed to the floors. Light grazing was used for the wood ceiling lamellas and the wood trunks, indirect lighting for the backwalls illuminate the decorative wallpapers. All decorative luminaires were custom-made and became a real eye-catcher.
The bar, that is a special part of the restaurant, is flooded with RGB lights. All lighting sources are controllable by LUTRON control system to set the mood and ambience. With LUTRON you can combine different types of dimming and address every single luminaire directly within the project. The control system provides a great range of possibilities for different scenes. For Peter Pane, four standard lighting scenes were created (day 1, day 2, night 1, night 2) and updated every season.
Every year the concept is updated in close cooperation with the client, incorporating the newest trends and technology.
