Allure Indian Bistro


The Project

We had the pleasure of creating a new concept in the restaurant industry.   The idea was to transform the restaurant from lunchtime to dinner to create a new environment.  This was accomplished by adding 90+ wall washers to color the walls and then setting them on a daily pattern to slowly fade colors.  If you are dining for an hour or 2, the color of the walls will be a different shade as you leave than when you came in.  We created texture on the wall by using break-up patterns and highlighted the bar with light boxes designed to highlight to bottles that will be displayed.

Factory Atlanta

The Project

The client was looking for a 360-projection set up for their event space to be able to transform their venue. The walls being white in the venue as well as being able to cut out a lot of ambient light, allowed us to use 7K lumen projectors to complete the project.  While we were installing this project, we were still delayed by covid manufacturing and shipping delays, which lead us to have a step-by-step phase-in of all the projectors.  The first 2 walls were completed.  A bit later, the 3rd wall was completed.  Then the 4th wall was completed, and the Factory became one of the few venues in the Atlanta metro area to offer 360 projection for their guests.

Overtime Elite Basketball Finals & Amazon Music

The Project

We had the opportunity to work at the OTE arena to help promote their partnership with Amazon Music during the Overtime Elite basketball finals.  For this installation, we had got to work with the great minds at 6 degrees to create a great photo op.  With 6 degrees providing the backdrop and layout, it was up to our team at Illuminating Design to bring it to life.  We used the logos of both Overtime Elite and Amazon music as the focal point of our projection.  While having music videos playing on the OTE logo, we were able to add a lava or fire design to the Amazon Music logo as well as other designs to create a unique photo op. Apparently, the design captured the eye of the cameraman streaming the event, so it was the feature of the stream during multiple stops of play.

Women In Technology

The Project

We had the opportunity to work with Women in Technology to create a wow factor for their annual gala in 2022 by using projection technology.  The event was held at the Roxy, and the vision was to transform the lobby of the venue into a new world  with tech.  Through a series of meetings, we decided projection was the way to create the overall look they were desiring.  We brought in 8 projectors to create two full walls of projections which would rotate through tech-based scenarios.  To add to the experience, we added par lights, which were tied into the overall programming of the images and were able to produce colors that matched the images being seen to make it an all-encompassing display.

 

 With the rotating scenes, it was fun to hear all the conversations about what scene they entered into.  
The biggest challenge of the project was finding an area to project on that would not take away from the experience.  We were able to solve this by bringing in pipe and drape and creating our own screen to project onto.  This allowed us to provide a clear image and create a magical experience.  


We also included up lights as well as projecting corporate sponsor logos throughout the theater.
