Nobu – Monte Carlo

Complete lighting consultancy working alongside interior designers Martin Hulbert Design, employed by the Fairmont Hotel Monte Carlo on behalf of the owners London & Regional.


A new addition for the worldwide chain of Nobu Sushi restaurants, opened December 2013. The original restaurant within the hotel underwent a complete transformation creating a light sophisticated interior cantilevered over the Mediterranean Sea.

Key lighting decisions:

  • Enhance the ceiling mounted sculpture with dimmable drop rod LED pendants
  • Create lighting focal points over key areas; bar, open sushi preparation areas, private dining areas.
  • Scene sets triggered around dusk utilising an astronomical clock
  • Layout of LED downlights to allow for a changeable seating plan.
  • 2700K dimmable LED downlights

To our (sad) excitement, the hotel commands THE position at the iconic Formula 1 Grand Prix Fairmont hairpin bend, the slowest turn on the F1 circuit.
