Concept

Lighting & Visual

The brief was to produce a technical and aesthetic masterpiece that takes the whole concept of club design up several levels. Live Legends has developed the full interior design as well as imagining and specifying a complete technical package – sound, lighting, video, lasers, special FX. They also co-ordinated the programming and commissioning with the characteristic passion and dedication synonymous with their name.

The Robe fixtures fundamental to the styling of the space are a mix of Spiiders, VIVA CMYs, Spikies, Pointes, MiniPointes, BMFL Blades and Divine UV floods. They were selected for their flexibility and multi-functionality as well as for the expedient sizing, speed, and general robustness – imperative for the demands of any club installation!

Challenges

Delivering to the client expectations! Daan insisted that part of the deal as creative director was having the freedom to invest in high profile global brands like Robe, with the philosophy that this was the best path to put One Third on a par with other famous superclubs around the world with the potential to attract the leading international DJs and performers.

Final thoughts

One Third’s owners and operators had specifically wanted to work with an international design team to build this extraordinary environment and to use the highest production values. Live Legends won the contract for several reasons including their impressive design portfolio and reputation for delivering superlative dance events, live extravaganzas and dramatic theatrical shows.
