SolarOasis technologies encourage a freedom of design not possible with conventional lighting. Here we show some of the ways SolarOasis technologies are incorporated as key elements in leading interior and architectural designs.

We also note other new ways in which SolarOasis technology is being showcased.

A glass enclosed wall of potted herbs maintained by SolarOasis grow lighting is a central feature in Kerry Simon's new flagship restaurant designed by architect David Rockwell. Having fresh herbs available to the restaurant kitchen is part of Simon's theme of ‘sustainability’. The same idea carries over to the rest of the restaurant, from its bamboo flooring to the menu, which offers sustainable foods such as fish which haven't been overfished.

Simon's menu also features his famous Iron Chef burger, named after the dish which helped him defeat Iron Chef Cat Cora in 2005.

The 6,000-square-foot restaurant on the sixth floor of the Palms Place is the result of a business partnership between Kerry Simon and casino developer George Maloof, who oversees development and operations at the Palms Place and other Maloof family hotels throughout the Southwest and California. As the leading force behind the building and operation of the neighboring Palms Casino, George Maloof has created one of the most sought-after destinations in Las Vegas.
