The lighting design team devised skylight and heater assemblies, mounting IO Line .75 high-output LED striplights above frosted glass panels, eliminating any visible sources. IO medium-output LED strips provide indirect light above kitchen cabinets and within the range hood while 2700K LED light panels provide undercabinet lighting.
The cove and floating ceiling are designed to conceal IO Line .75 LED striplights viewed at shallow angles from great distances, and to eliminate harsh shadows.
Display cases are illuminated with LED pucklights, with LED light panels in feature compartments. IO Line .75 striplights were chosen for their varied light outputs and for precise beam control. Cove lighting was carefully placed to ensure even illumination of the back walls and feathered lighting projected into rooms.
