Restaurant Tatel

Location: Madrid/Spain
Products: connecDIM Gateway G1, LED Drivers LCU and LCI


The prestigious Tatel restaurant in the centre of Madrid offers Spanish cuisine of the highest order and an air of exclusivity. Lighting scenes create the perfect atmosphere. The light management system also offers individual adjustment with connecDIM.

Seen and be seen

A central dining room, five partitioned premium sections and a bar provide the stylish setting for private get-togethers and business meetings. Four lighting scenes create the perfect atmosphere for the particular time of day in all the rooms, whether you're taking lunch, enjoying a coffee break, eating an evening meal or relaxing over a late-night cocktail. The intensity of the light in the separate premium sections can be individually controlled. The Operations Manager at the restaurant can change the brightness there depending on the clientele – for example a particular level for young people celebrating a birthday, and a different one for high-flying entrepreneurs discussing a deal. The light management system will have a positive effect on the well-being of the demanding clientele.

Smart light management

Tridonic's connecDIM gateway in this installation enables a series of LCU and LCI LED Drivers to be independently controlled via three DALI lines. A Tridonic expert programmed the lighting scenes, as defined by the lighting planner and interior designer. Individual brightness adjustments in the various premium sections, as specified by the operations manager, can be made wirelessly from an iPad in the main dining area. Systems featuring the new connecDIM Gateway can be easily set up and monitored using apps for mobile devices.

This smart lighting control system was implemented by Diseñolamp using Tridonic component solutions. Laser Iluminación was responsible for the lighting design. Interior design was by Ilmiodesign. The co-owners and brand ambassadors for this prestige restaurant are three world-famous Spaniards: tennis player Rafael Nadal, NBA basketball legend Pau Gasol and pop star Enrique Iglesias.
