What we did
At West Wood Sandymount, we introduced an RGBW spotlight feature that would be rolled out across each of the subsequent sites. Each independently controllable spotlight was positioned equidistantly along the top rim of the immersive screen to produce an original coloured light effect cascading down the full length of the screen. This provides instructors with a spectacular backdrop for live non-immersive classes, while the outermost spotlights can also be used as infills for a full-screen effect when the studio is being used for standard Les Mills Virtual video content. Spotlights illuminating the studio entrance and tiered independently controllable analogue RGBW strip lights on the studio’s raised bike platforms are a functional safety enhancement in the darkened studio which also reinforce the dramatic cinematic effect, prepping riders for an extraordinary experience as soon as they enter the room. With seven varying-length overhead digital RGB strips ready to sweep coloured light over riders’ heads as they hurtle through The Trip’s digital landscapes, class-goers won’t be disappointed.
At West Wood Dun Laoghaire, full-length overhead digital RGB strips and high output linear perimeter baton wash fixtures were used to encase the studio in motivational, kinetic light. Meanwhile, standalone subwoofers were recessed into custom-built alcoves located at each side of the curved screen. We accentuated these alcoves with digital RGB strips to create an audio-linked Graphic EQ feature light effect, producing a fantastically integrated overall studio AV design.
At West Wood Clontarf, the subwoofers and light feature were inlayed into a false curved wall extending from either side of the curved immersive screen; and the studio was crowned with a fanned ceiling light installation using digital RGB lighting – a high-grade, high resolution, flexible LED tape with individually controllable LEDs to up the Graphic EQ effect - for a stunningly cohesive, surround-scope immersive visual experience from the ceiling to the floor.
We used the same high quality, high res tape at Aston Quay, where we also installed a highly functional, highly aesthetic T-bar baton wash fixture feature that can illuminate one
