Designed in association with Marks Barfield Architects, who were responsible for this iconic new attraction on the south coast. At the base of the tower is the Belle Vue restaurant and a Spectral custom pendant ring luminaire provides the lighting for the centrepiece bar area.

The chandelier was produced using the H-Profil 140 system to an exact diameter of 5630mm which matches the circular bar area beneath. To give the impression of a floating ring, the architects wanted as few suspension points as possible and the torsional strength of the H140 system allowed that goal to be achieved. In order to maintain the clean look and uncluttered concrete ceiling, all the control gear for the LED modules is housed within the fitting itself, and all power and control is fed from a single cable.

The 120Kg luminaire is finished with a structured silver paint, which is resistant to fingerprints, making maintenance easy. The LED modules, which are made in house at RIDI Group’s LED production facility in Germany, are fully replaceable for a long service life and peace of mind for the client.

The perfectly even illumination of the fitting, and fine elegant finish perfectly compliments the aesthetic of the rest of this exciting new attraction.
