Kuma’s vision and use of bamboo created a unique dining space in
west London. Firefly’s approach was to keep the lighting ‘out of
the way’. Lighting was fit above the bamboo ceiling out of sight.
However, the question was how to render light onto the ceiling
without the use of uplights? Firefly used the long dining tables to
reflect light back up to the ceiling and emphasise the undulating
nature of the design.
