The Rendezvous Casino is one of the top party venues in the UK city of Leeds. Far more than just a casino, the premises are on a grand scale across four floors, and include stylish dining, gaming suites, several chic bars, and a 50-seat private cinema. Other private facilities include a dining room and a large function room for banquets, conferences and family celebrations.
The casino wanted a large scale feature chandelier to form a centerpiece in the huge ceiling area of the main gaming hall. UFO were contracted by Cannock Electrical and Mechanical of Staffordshire to build and install nine identical custom fiber optic chandeliers.
The chandeliers were built of MDF covered with mirror laminate, for a sparkling, glamorous effect. The fiber-optic strands were attached to the top plates of the chandeliers and then fitted into the ceiling.
These chandelier curtains were encased in two circular rings for a more architectural impact, and the rings were fitted with focused spotlights to act as functional lighting for the casino space below.
Each chandelier was powered by a 150W metal halide illuminator and has around 450 fiber optic tails up to 12 feet long.
