F1 Arcade

bespoke feature lighting

The light lab worked on the fabrication & installation of bespoke feature lighting at the new F1 Arcade in St Pauls, realising the lighting design of  Victoria Jerram, initial concept by Ana Mos Studio and specialist contractor Archetypely.
The lighting comprised of 6 large scale custom pendants, suspended across the gaming area at the new site, designed to replicate a number of F1 circuits.
A unique feature of the pendants is their pixel control technology, allowing for the creation of dynamic colour scenes, and also the ability to emulate the movement of an F1 car as it travels around the track.
Our specialist team also supplied/fabricated bespoke linear fittings surrounding the bar area, with a range of colour scenes to complement the feature pendants.

In keeping with the dynamic nature of F1 racing, bespoke feature lighting by The Light Lab, in the form of six large pendants inspired by F1 circuits, were lit with a digital colour changing LED which can be controlled by specialist pixel mapping software. Additionally, the ‘starting light’ feature walls were programmed to mimic the F1 starting sequence and a digital colour changing LED was integrated into the feature bar with its own display sequences within the software. Achieving the fine balance between elegance and exhilaration, scene-setting of the mode lighting control system was also essential to balance the huge palette of direct, indirect and colour changing light sources to define a hierarchy of light within the space.

We completed full onsite installation to ensure that the final result was completed to the highest standard, with programming and commissioning support from WebCentrikAV.

Architectural lighting design consultant, Victoria Jerram commented: “As is the case with any innovative concept, there is always going to be inevitable challenges along the way. From the outset the brief was clear, and despite a challenging seven months from the initial appointment to doors opening, I am immensely proud of the finished product which is a testament to the contemporary vision of F1® Arcade and the imagination of the wider design team to deliver the ultimate racing experience for driving enthusiasts and gamers alike.”
