CHAUVET Lighting Illuminates the Old Jameson Distillery
Dublin’s Old Jameson Distillery offers a warm welcome to the hundreds of visitors per day who pour through the doors for its tour of the Irish whisky making process. The attraction recently upgraded its reception area using fixtures from the CHAUVET Professional and Iluminarc ranges. This now presents a more unified look in an area which, for guests, is the first point of contact with the brand.
The installation - designed and installed by Gorilla Design and supplied by QLX Lighting - encompassed the main reception area, café, stairwell and underfloor of the attraction. A more welcoming feel was created using 24 of the resourceful CHAUVET Professional COLORado™ 1 Tour fixtures, along with 24 CHAUVET Professional COLORdash™ VW wash lights powered by seven cool and warm white LEDs, for purer whites and a colour temperature selection ranging from the warm and inviting to crisp, cold shades.
The installation also featured 48 Ilumiline Logic 12 fixtures from Iluminarc by CHAUVET Professional. The iluminarc models were chosen over battens because their slim line profile is better hidden beneath the metal frame suspending the glass floor. Finally, a total of six CHAUVET Professional wireless event LED luminaires and charging case (WELL)2.0 systems were used as flexible lighting solutions throughout the venue for private events.
Gorilla Design deployed an iLight control system to create a fully controllable lighting solution for the multifunction event space, with energy efficiency managed for low running and maintenance costs. Rob Jones, Gorilla Design MD and Director of QLX Lighting, explains, “Gorilla Design is known and praised for its creative designs and use of event space, so when we were asked to design this lighting upgrade, we knew we’d use CHAUVET. It’s essential to know the lighting effects you’ve designed will continue without any problems for some time to come. We use the CHAUVET range of lighting for its superior quality at a competitive price. CHAUVET is perfect for high impact event spaces such as the Old Jameson Distillery because of its reliability and the beautiful high definition colours it can create.”
