The Lights on Broadway
The New York Marriott Marquis has introduced an interior lighting tree design at its Broadway Lounge, creating a vibrant yet relaxing atmosphere for guests with views of Broadway and Times Square. The hotel chose to create two 15-ft “trees” with branches reaching out from 21 ft to over 46 ft using an inlay of linear light, which had to be UV-stabilised for long-term performance. Reveal Design Group led the project, setting criteria including IP67-rated for wet locations, easily maintained and consistency of CCT. The team selected Tivoli Lighting, whose Trace Vertical linear LED was found to be the best solution after multiple sample tests.
The team received the help of Christopher DiMarco from Turner & Townsend, Anthony Scotto from OMNIBUILD and their teams to coordinate all trades for a complex installation to meet the construction timeline.
