ModuleX® lighting was selected for THE BLOSSOM KYOTO, which opened on Gojo Street in Kyoto as a hotel as part of THE BLOSSOM, JR Kyushu Hotels' top-end brand.
Kyoto changes its look beautifully with each of the four seasons while keeping some remnants of old times everywhere. The concept of the hotel, where guests can experience the traditions and culture of Kyoto, during their stay is "Soft, gentle connections."
We implemented a lighting plan to embody the concept using light and to connect guests to the world of THE BLOSSOM KYOTO.
The passage garden between the entrance and the reception lounge re-creates a Kyo-machiya traditional Kyoto house style, to bring guests something out of the ordinary and entice them to move deeper into the building.
The Japanese traditional lanterns made using our optical technology-based Motif Bespoke decorative lighting fixtures produce gentle brightness and give soft light to the plants. We also used our independently developed lighting design technique, Lighting Modulation in Viewing Angle Range®, to adjust the entire balance between brightness and illumination, resulting in a beautifully shaded space.
The underground large public bath is decorated with mosaic tile art that depicts the cherry blossoms and bamboo forest road in Sagano using our proprietary Gradation Lighting technique.
Calculating the amount of gradated light allowed a considerable reduction of the number of lighting fixtures, and controlling the glare in the large public bath makes bathing time impressive.
Our proprietary lighting environment control technology ModuleX® Controls is used throughout the hotel, including the entrance, passage garden, reception lounge, restaurant, and large public bath.
By maintaining the world of THE BLOSSOM KYOTO with the optimum balance of brightness and illumination, we offer a space in which guests can relax at any time of the day.
