Botánico is a small bar located in an up-and-coming neighborhood of Manizales, the capital of the coffee region in Colombia.
It was designed with a small budget but great taste, so we had to be smart about the lighting. Using incandescent vintage lamps for general lighting allow us to light the tables and, at the same time, accentuate the decoration on the walls and the ceiling. The incandescent lamps give us the flexibility to dim the light down and create a warmer and cozier atmosphere as the night arrives. The bar area is highlighted by integrating LED tapes in the liquor shelves and in the front of the bar, achieving a major visual impact.
*In Memory of Mateo Villegas, founder of Botánico and beloved brother.
