Spectrum RGB downlights from Phoebe LED have provided a versatile solution at the new state-of-the-art hospitality and conference centre at Thruxton Race Circuit in Hampshire.  The new Thruxton Centre is a two storey, 1415m2 facility offering a restaurant, bar, exhibition space, functions rooms and hospitality suites as well as an outside viewing terrace and balcony.

Ringwood Building Services were responsible for installation and project management for the new facility, which included many innovative concepts and also required an eye catching lighting design and layout in the public facing areas.  Ringwood worked closely with ElectricBase, Andover, to create a colour changing lighting scheme using the Phoebe Spectrum LED downlights that can be controlled and dimmed via a Smartphone (Google Android or Apple IOS).

The Spectrum 10W downlight consists of a 40 degree LED spotlight which provides colour temperature from 2200K extra warm white to 6500K daylight and a 2W colour-changing full spectrum RGB ambient ring light that projects a halo of light around the fitting.  The downlight is also available in a tuneable white version where the ambient ring can sync to the same colour as the main spotlight. Both the downlight and ambient ring light can be operated together or independently to provide unique and stunning scene setting possibilities via Bluetooth.

Graeme Giles of Ringwood Building Services commented “The Spectrum lighting scheme looks stunning and has been very well received by both staff and guests within the Thruxton Centre. Phoebe LED offered advice and full support during the installation and a representative visited the site to assist with programming and to demonstrate the different sequences that could be achieved.  The system is extremely versatile and following the installation at Thruxton, I have installed this scheme into a restaurant where the colour scene setting functions have also been a huge success”.
