Press release CINEPLEX Memmingen
The lighting of the CINEPLEX Cinemas in Memmingen
In addition to the lobby and facade of the CINEPLEX project in Memmingen, the entire lighting concept was designed and realized – using renowned lighting manufacturers such as Oktalite, Moltoluce or the LED-specialist Hansen-Neon.
LUNA 420 Pendulum lighting fixtures by Oktalite illuminate upper lobby and hallways of the cinema complex.
When you enter the lobby, the svelte and elegant ROMANO pendulum lighting fixtures by MOLTOLUCE illuminating the extra-long counter are noticeable right away – a delicate line of light, placing clear decorative accents in the lobby.
HANSEN-NEON offers the 51 mm wide and 53 mm high facade profile in three different lengths (2000, 1000, 500 mm, custom lengths possible), optionally equipped with LEDs in white, blue, red, green, yellow and orange. The colours of the upper plastic profile are identical with each other (same night / day effect, or coloured at night / white during the day). A white upper part and coloured LEDs create a pastel lighting effect. The pendulum light fixtures, equipped with fluted polycarbonate reflectors, have an integrated ballast technology as well as an integrated changeable reflector (except TC-T/E, WFL) and are especially suited to illuminating large spaces. The light fixtures are suspended from steel wires (pendulum length 3,000 mm, other lengths on request) and can be fastened either over a 3-phase power track adapter with corresponding power tracks or directly to the ceiling.
LUNA 420 is optionally set up for TC-T/E, HIT, HAST-TC and HAST light fixtures and is available in silver (RAL 9006) powder coated (other RAL colours available upon request). LUNA 420 is available in a variety of styles – Super Spot, Spot, Medium Flood, Flood, Wide Flood and Smooth – and can therefore be used for a great variety of lighting applications.
The ROMANO light fixture series with its honeycombed shades made of “Serpentine”, a high-quality polycarbonate lighting foil in white, amber or red creates a pleasant, warmly lit ambiance. This extremely aesthetic light fixture is available in nickel or chrome versions and with a diameter of 158 mm in three different lengths – 175, 400 and 600 mm. It is fitted with an E27 socket for a maximum of 75 Watts. The polycarbonate foil shade is extremely sturdy and easy to maintain and is therefore very well suited for use in the project space.
The associated “Romano Ponge” model, whose shades are covered with precious fabric in white or beige, are more targeted for residential use. For the auditorium numbers, the Anne Batisweiler team came up with something very special.
The ROMANO series by MOLTOLUCE is also available as wall/ceiling light fixtures and as table/floor lamps. The wall versions with their shades made of polycarbonate had the auditorium number printed on afterwards. This not only ensured a uniform appearance, but the square light fixtures, measuring 650 x 650 mm and the auditorium numbers are also easily visible from greater distances.
