Robe in Heaven
Club Heaven, Budapest’s latest destination for fashionistas and beautiful people opened last month after a year of construction and design work. Located in the suburbs of the City, the elegant aesthetics and interior design for the space was completed with the installation of Robe moving lights for the DJ and dancefloor.
Heaven has a capacity for 500 exclusive people and includes a large main room, with a loft area giving a spectacular view over the dancefloor, a separate VIP room for private events and a covered VIP ’garage’ for DJs, managers, VVIPs and special clients.
Technical equipment was first on the investment list, which, as Csanádi Csaba from Robe’s Hungarian distributors Colossal explains, is quite unusual in this sector.
The supplier (also for sound) was Erlatech Stage Kft, a company that specialises in kitting out clubs, discos, shops and restaurants. They have regularly been specifying Robe and Anolis brands - for lighting and architectural applications - respectively for over a year.
Erlatech Stage Kft MD Attila Tompó thinks Robe is the most reliable moving light product available for the Hungarian market, and for this installation, chose to use Robe’s popular Club Series, because it was absolutely perfect for the project.
Six Robe ClubSpot 300 CTs and 4 Scan 250 XTs were installed in Heaven. The high brightness of the Club series was
“Absolutely THE right product for this application,”
says Tompó, adding that the speed and reliability of the fixtures were also important considerations. The Robes are controlled via an SGM Pilot 3000 des, along with other lighting units that illuminate DJs and dancers.
Four of the Scan 250 XTs are placed on the wall, creating a ’stage’ feeling around the DJ booth, a club lighting design that is currently unique in Hungary along with the imaginative use of lighting in Heaven, which is very noticable and has already received many good comments.
Colossal continues to enjoy a positive, long-term relationship with Erlatech, and a new showroom will be opened imminently, with Robe and Anolis as highlighted brands.
