North Star’s Metaline lighting fixture chosen for Mirage Resort’s new $1.6 billion Bellagio Resort Hotel

North Star Lighting announced today that its Metaline 2000 watt lighting fixtures will illuminate the Bellagio, the Mirage Resort’s new $1.6 billion, 3,000-room resort hotel scheduled to open this October in Las Vegas.

Inspired by the idyllic village of Bellagio, which overlooks Italy’s magnificent Lake Como, the Bellagio’s entrance statement features an 8.5-acre lake where an extraordinary $30 million choreographed water ballet is sure to be as much a public signature for the Bellagio as The Mirage’s volcano and Treasure Island’s Pirate Battle.

“What’s so exciting about our new Metaline fixtures is that it enables us to create a solution that compliments the Bellagio’s world class architecture, and its unique lake and lushly landscaped grounds”, says Jeff Sanders, National Account Manager at North Star Lighting.

Designers Desmond O’Donovan and Jonathan Howard of DHA Lighting say, “Our approach to the building required a precise, controlled luminaire that could give the clear light of metal halide. This allows us to bring out the detail of the building without overpowering it’s subtlety and colouring.”

The North Star solution employs low glare and narrow asymmetric beams to illuminate the Bellagio towers, and wide symmetric beams for its lower stories. The result is the Bellagio towers, lake and vast park grounds are distinctively balanced, regardless of the distance or perspective from which they are viewed.

North Star develops and manufactures lighting Products to meet the lighting industry’s exacting aesthetic, performance and safety specifications for sports, commercial and industrial applications. In addition to the Bellagio, North Star’s recent commercial industrial solutions in Las Vegas include the MGM Grand and Caesars Palace new $600 million Palace Tower.
