Philips luminaires create immersive environment at CKK Jordanki27 January 2016
The Jordanki Culture and Congress Centre (CKK Jordanki) has been fitted with 144 Philips Vari-Lite professional luminaires, including the VL4000 Spot.
The 22,000sqm multi-functional hub in the Polish city of Toruń was designed by Spanish architect Fernando Menis and the product of a two-year building project completed in December 2015.
Hired by Wroclaw-based construction company Intersystem, Philips Entertainment distributor for Poland PS TEATR supplied and installed 144 Philips Vari-Lite moving heads into the venue’s 880-seat concert hall and 300-seat chamber hall. Other fixtures also installed included 32 Philips Selecon PL3 luminaires and 8 PLcyc2 luminaires and three Philips Showline SL NITRO 510 strobes.
“Even in the very early stages of the project, Philips Entertainment products were specified by the consultants and the venue’s technical managers because of their world-class innovation and reliability,” said project manager Paweł Ziomecki of PS TEATR. “Moreover, as CKK Jordanki hosts a diverse programme of events with many revered musicians and artists, the venue required luminaires which any lighting designer would be delighted to find at their disposal. Philips Vari-Lite fit the bill perfectly.”
The venue’s modular structure and mobile ceilings mean it can be transformed for a range of events, from large trade fairs to theatre shows.
“The fixtures are positioned over the stage and out over the audience to create an immersive environment,” continued Ziomecki. “However their versatility means they can also be re-hanged wherever needed in order to achieve the specific brief of the CKK Jordanki’s various events.”
