Fresh herbs for restaurant The Kitchen

At restaurant The Kitchen on the top floor of luxury department store De Bijenkorf in Amsterdam the chefs prefer to work with fresh herbs in their open kitchen. Specially for them HRBS created a seperation wall that also serves as a place to grow fresh herbs. There is not enough daylight to maintain these herbs. That’s why we installed our LED’s to not only make them grow, but also to put them in the spotlight. This litterally brings the restaurant to life and provides a nice experience to the visitors.

Three years later

After three years the herbs are still healthy and growing. As you can see in the picture, the herbs have grown into full and bushy plants. This is because the LED’s are working as they are supposed to and haven’t lost any power since day one. Customers of restaurant The Kitchen can continuously enjoy freshly picked herbs in their meals.

Overall setup

The seperation wall is made from densely packed open compartments which each have there own box with herbs. We used one T5 Series  in every open compartment. They are hanging [distance] to the herbs. The lights are on for [hours] a day.

T5 Series in 60 cm

For this perticular project we used the T5 Series in 60 cm. This series is perfect for low applications such as cutting and tissue culture. Therfore it’s the ideal LED to be built in to the the HRBS seperation wall and provide the herbs the exact needed amount of artificial daylight.
