Entry DescriptionWe have developed and implemented the lighting project for the First casino in the seaside city of Odessa. We combined aesthetics and accent design, meeting all the technical requirements of the casino: brightly lit tables, no shadows from the hands of players, the lighting that does not blind the cameras, and at the same time allowing the atmosphere to remain comfortable for the game with theatrical accent light.
Our team developed custom jellyfish glass lights at our glass-blowing workshop Optical Metaphor. Due to the low ceiling, the light sources are located very close to the glass plates. Therefore, to avoid light spots, we had to use optical systems with the widest possible optics and make the glasses opaque and diffusive.
We applied chemical and mechanical methods of processing glass, fusing glass granules of different fractions into it in order to make it opaque and allow for further diffusing light and removing glare.
More than 100 individually controllable addressable RGB groups were made by us to create scenarios of light waves behind glass due to the special custom software. Imitation of water moving on jellyfish is what creates a realistic effect of the sea of ??light.
