Cultural clubbing in Kunming with Robe
Creative director Daan Oomen and his team from Netherlands-based visual specialists Live Legends have delivered another outstanding club project in China – OT Kun in Kunming – following up their stunning work at One Third in Beijing. At the core of the lighting rig are 56 x Robe MegaPointes and 110 x Spikies chosen by Daan and Live Legends’ lighting designer/production manager, Serge Patist. The MegaPointes are deployed around the main room’s central feature which is a ring of square objects clad in video panels presenting a prominent circle shape.
This was inspired by Yunnan tribal necklaces and headpieces, known for their beauty, interesting shapes and vibrant colours. The 100 Spikies are also dotted around the central feature as well as the DJ booth. OT Kun also has many other lights including LED strips and strobes plus an automation system and lasers. Lighting control is via a grandMA2 full size, with a disguise 4×4 media server and Resolume running the video and pixel elements and a Pangolin for the lasers. All the lighting equipment was supplied via MRT in Shanghai and installer Topfair, both co-owned by the NOA’s Arc Group, which kept everything efficient and in-house.
