Focus Lighting Inc Chosen for Crush at Atlantis

Crush is an exciting, energetic club designed for teenagers at the Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas.  Focus Lighting worked closely with Jeffrey Beers International to create an environment on par with world class nightclub venues that give teenagers a unique experience, unrivalled by other teen clubs.

The compelling graphic design utilises a series of long lines punctuated by dots of light to create an undulating environment of contrasting light and dark areas. 

The architecture of the club works in concert with the lighting to create an enveloping, embracing space – some of the architecture is literally built out of light tubes that wrap up the wall and onto the ceiling, immersing clubgoers in video animations that match the mood and energy of the music. 

Over 200 video clips can be recalled by the DJ, and an EQ graphic synced to the audio output overlays the animations, which adjust to the speed of the music.  All of the standard elements of a dance club are included, from a mock bar, to a state of the art dancefloor lighting rig, to high resolution video displays. 

Some of the conventional club features like a disco ball have been twisted to satisfy the younger generation - instead of a standard disco ball above the dance floor, the entry to the club is envisioned as an “inside-out exploded disco ball”. The entry wall surfaces are made from beveled mirror tile that surround an inground floor feature of colour changing LEDs that uplight people passing through, the kinetic patterns of which are reflected in the custom reflective decorative fixture overhead.

The dynamic excitement is carried through to the other areas of the venue, an Internet Lounge and a Gaming Stadium.  In the Gaming Stadium, the central gaming tree is built of acrylic rods that transmit colour changing LED lights at either end of their shafts. The lights are programmed through a routine that matches the frenetic energy of the games themselves, playing on 32 screens arrayed around the tree.  In tournament play, special sequences are triggered to react to winning teams. Around the perimeter, private gaming dens are available for individual play in a more sedate environment. 

The use of the Internet continues the high tech motif by using large LCD displays that feature powerful diving scenes, which are further enhanced by offsetting the surrounding walls / ceiling with LEDs in a coordinating deep blue hue.  To prevent the colour from overwhelming clubgoers, supplemental white lighting is strategically used to avoid washing out the coloured elements, while still creating a comfortable environment that provides flattering light for patrons.
