Immersive LED Strip Experience at Newquay Sports Centre

Newquay Sports Centre– Creating Immersive LED Strip Experiences

Lighting has the power to transform spaces, shaping the way we perceive and interact with our surroundings. Whether it’s a cosy reading nook, a vibrant art gallery, or a bustling city street, lighting sets the mood and atmosphere, influencing both aesthetics and functionality.

A perfect example of this in action is the lighting installation we provided for Newquay Sports Centre in Cornwall with our VEGAS LED Strip. Our client wanted a modern lighting solution for their spin class, and we knew exactly what would satisfy their requirements.

Lighting Design Means Knowing the Rules So You Know When to Break Them

Generally, when installing dotted LED strip, there are a few design guidelines to follow. For example, dotted light is understood to work best for concealed lighting fixtures, such as backlighting for a headboard, bar top, TV screen, table edge, mirror, etc. If the dotted LED strip is visible, then it would be common practice to use an extrusion with a diffuser to create a continuous light effect.

This is all good practice, but at ROBUS we tailor our lighting design to each environment and our client’s desired aesthetic. A spin class is a very distinct environment, providing a high-energy and dynamic experience while being equally demanding and exhilarating. What better way to match this sense of energetic continuous motion than with a dotted LED strip tunnel offering colour-changing capabilities?

Our in-house Lighting Design team knew that this industrial-style gym room was perfectly suited to the dotted effect of our VEGAS RGBW Strip.

What is VEGAS LED Strip?

VEGAS LED strip transformed this repurposed room into a truly unforgettable experience, so let’s delve into this lighting to see just how versatile it is:

  • Available in IP20 and IP67 for indoor and outdoor applications, it is suitable for many different environments such as bars and clubs, restaurants, displays, hotel and office receptions, showrooms, exhibition stands, step lighting, window dressing and, of course, gyms!
