Light Fantastic Production Services support Focus/18 at Chelsea Design Centre

UK – Technical production specialist Light Fantastic Production Services has supported S2 Events with a comprehensive lighting, audio and support package for a spectacular Havana nights themed event.

The networking reception was a key date in the dynamic schedule at Focus/18, the six day celebration of design excellence that welcomes enthusiasts from around the globe. Held at the Chelsea Design Centre, London, the Focus/18 brief was to assist in the delivery of a magical guest experience, inspired by the season’s new collections; playful, bold and confident.

Delivering a rich mix of crisp lighting effects, deep colour washes and clear audio, the on-site LFPS production crew, headed up by Project Manager Andrew Maxted, built on the Havana theme, filling the Design Centre’s three grand atriums with a vibrant mix of tropical colour and spicy salsa rhythms.

To match the stylish nature of the venue, LFPS specified fixtures from their extensive inventory of specialist white lighting and audio products to discreetly blend against the aesthetic of the designer backdrop, providing maximum effect with minimal visual impact.

Lighting the event, the team used a selection of Robe 600 LED Wash, Mega Pointe and DL4X LED automated heads, rigged above the first floor walkways and at roof level. The audio installation featured a distributed D&B Audiotechnik system, the smart, white finish ensuring all equipment remained inconspicuous to the guests on the ground floor.

From highlighting the oversize exotic birds and butterflies suspended in the central atrium, to sound-tracking the high octane floor show of the professional salsa dancers below, the LFPS team used the equipment package to full effect, bathing the installation with creativity and colour to deliver a truly immersive guest experience.

Commenting on the project, Light Fantastic’s Andrew Maxted said: “Providing a full lighting and audio package designed to be unobtrusive and sympathetic to the minimalist look and feel of the Chelsea Design Centre was an interesting challenge. By specifying products from our diverse pool of equipment we were able to deliver a blend of aesthetics and creativity that proved the perfect answer to the designer brief.”
