Ljubljana’s hottest, trendiest and most glamorous nightclub – Top 6 – has just had a complete refurbishment and technical lighting upgrade which features the first Robe ROBIN DLX Spots and LEDBeam 100s in a club installation in Slovenia.
Apart from hosting the beautiful people in the metropolis, the venue has stunning views across the centre of the city and up to Ljubljana’s historic castle from the glass fronted lift that whizzes seamlessly up and down the six floors to the top of a high profile downtown department store.
Top 6’s owner, local entrepreneur Anthony Tomzin, asked integrator MK Sound Light – who also supplied the sound system – to come up with ‘something special and cool’ for his 700 capacity hot spot, which is open three days a week and also available for private events.
With the low headroom, both the Robe ROBIN DLX Spots and LEDBeam 100s were felt to be ideal for size, especially the tiny LEDBeam 100s. Being LED sources keeps power consumption to a minimum whilst giving the light jockeys and operators the maximum features and flexibility.
With LED sources installed, it also represents a significant saving for on-going running costs, avoiding any lamp replacements.
The other big advantage is claimed to be that the units generate almost no heat, making the environment more comfortable for customers, and with less AC required.
The eight ROBIN DLX Spots and 12 LEDBeam 100s are all rigged in the roof above the club’s main dancefloor and in front of the DJ booth.
Careful positioning means they can also be used very effectively to dramatically sweep the whole length of the long bar which slices through the room and illuminate the VIP area the other side of it. This is said to look particularly effective when the light beams are bounced back in the mirrored surfaces at the far end of the VIP.
“The DLX is currently the only RGBW moving light on the market that has a really good enough output for this type of club application,” said MK Sound Light project manager Dean Karov.
The owner is said to be delighted with the results, and the new lighting system, together with a Nexo Geo S12 audio system, are all helping to make Top 6 even more of a focal point for Ljubljana’s cool crowd.
