Robe LED lighting makes mark in Vegas Dance Club24 October 2012
Robe Lighting has been installed at the all-new Vegas Dance Club in Lucerne, Switzerland, with the system incorporating the ROBIN LEDBeam 100 range.
Lighting designer Frank Alofs from Muttenz-based Audiotech KST AG was tasked with designing a system that would complement the 1,000-capacity venue, which plays host to nights fronted by international DJs. Local company Privilege Events was also entlisted to oversee and co-ordinate all the technical elements, with the spec for the new club lighting system documented as needing to be ‘exciting lighting scheme to match the vibes and exclusive feel of the venue’.
A keen user and specifier of Robe products for the last two years, Alofs made the decision to install twelve ROBIN LEDBeam 100s, eight DLX Spots and four LEDWash 300s at the centre of the lighting rig. These are rigged on circular trussing in the roof and around the underside of the first floor balcony – all following the attractive spherical design of the room, dancefloor and DJ booth.
The LEDWash 100s are rigged in the roof under the balcony, where their small size takes advantage of the lower headroom. Their mega-bright beams are used for shooting out into the roof void above the centre of the main dancefloor and scanning down onto the packed crowds, where they are said to be the most suitable solution for fast moving audience interaction.
The virtual colour wheel of the DLX Spot comes pre-programmed with 237 colours including a selection of authentic different colour temperature whites from 2,700 to 8,000 K. “It is a fantastic fixture – very fast in all aspects,” stated Alofs.
Day to day, the fixtures are operated using a Chamsys MQ100 console.
