Intecho has become the chosen partner for two of the most hotly anticipated venues in the UK as they launch within weeks of each other. Emily Roux’s Caractère, in Notting Hill and rising star Simon Martin’s Mana Restaurant, both turned to Intecho to provide intelligent lighting solutions as part of the interior design for their October launch.
From North; Returning to his Northern roots after several years at two Michelin-starred Noma in Copenhagen, voted the best restaurant in the world for 4 years, Martin’s Mana restaurant is one of Manchester’s most eagerly awaited venues. Appointed on account of their industry leading reputation and unparalleled hospitality portfolio, Intecho has designed in-house automated systems to control atmospheric DALI lighting by individual table, all controlled by the front of house team via a simple to use app, as well as the design and installation of smart technology throughout.
To South; With an almost identical lighting brief and vision as Mana, Caractère, launched by Emily Roux and her husband Diego Ferrari, has become the third generation eatery of the exquisitely talented Roux family. The famous Anglo-French family have been behind Mayfair restaurant Le Gavroche since 1981
Synonymous with revolutionary building technologies, within the hospitality sector, Intecho has completed high profile projects with some of London’s most exclusive venues. Details of projects include bringing to life the vision of the internationally acclaimed Martin Brudnizki Design Studio, providing smart lighting systems at Annabel’s and Sexy Fish Restaurant, and installing lighting that can be dimmed for individual tables at the world renowned The Ivy Restaurant.
The firm recently reported a 30 per cent year-on-year growth as it capitalises upon the exploding Internet of Things (IoT) market, with leading hospitality venues turning to Intecho to transform the guest experience they offer.
Co-founder and director of Intecho, Paul Murphy commented: “Intecho’s experience in the hospitality sector coupled with our residential know-how, has enabled us to build a reputation that has really penetrated the market, evolving us to increasingly become the go-to company for the high-end commercial market,”
“Some of the UK’s most iconic brands are constantly striving for ways to deliver a supreme dining experience, lighting has become integral in creating the desired ambiance. Using our market-leading technologies and smart systems, we are empowering hospitality staff to control their environment to suit the needs, preference and mood of their diners.”
Intecho’s growing portfolio of enviable client also includes a number of large-scale residential projects each year.
