STEP 1: LIGHTING DESIGN The first step was to come up with a feasible lighting design which would highlight some of the more important details of the interiors carried out by Dante O, Benini & partners Studio by creating an artful mix of indirect and back lit solutions to offer the wanted quantity and quality of light that could underscore the decor. In order to obtain this we selected a combination of lights which would deliver the wanted atmospheres. The positioning of these had to be strategically devised since they were to deliver a natural light effect.
STEP 2: LIGHT ENGINEERING Once the paper work had been completed on the architect’s drawing board, the final design work required digitalisation via DALI (Digital Addressable Lighting Interface) so as to transfer the maps onto a monitor to obtain schematic sequences of required cabling and lit up sceneries. Thanks to this new digital interfacing standard, Videoworks could study and select each illuminating body’s full potential accordingly, since fading and dimming capacities were and are a fundamental aspect in the course of this phase which comprises the creation of diverse atmospheres on board.
STEP 3: LIGHT MANAGEMENT After having completed the project, Videoworks supervised the installation of the whole plant providing expertise and technical advice also in purchasing the material needed, in addition to testing and verifying each component and its specifications. In the course of this preliminary phase prior to installation Videoworks supplied the shipyard with a detailed lighting data sheet book comprehensive of technical maps, correct quantity of drivers and more.
Maurizio Minossi cofounder and technical director of Videoworks said: “Yachts’ lighting systems have now become increasingly complex electronic plants. Our objective is to supply reliable services to back up the creative work of architects and interior designers”. And Mauro Pellegrino Videoworks’ founder and sales director goes on to say: “We’re proud in having taken part in such a demanding technological and design project such as this. It is a rewarding sign which confirms Videoworks’ capacity in dealing with every single aspect needed in setting up such complex installations on board of today’s yachts”.
