Robe specified for Hribar Hall event space
Hribar Hall is the latest newly renovated event space in Ljubljana Castle which sits majestically above the picturesque Slovenian capital. The new venue is designed to be completely flexible; the capacity ranges from 180 seated to 250 standing depending on the set up and format which can be fully seated for banquets and dinners to standing with different sized stages, bare floor or catwalks. With this in mind, when it came to choosing the lighting, the Castle’s technical manager Tomaz Novak specified Robe to offer the best options for all scenarios – with a rig comprising four Spiider LED wash beams and 16 x LEDBeam 100s – eight new and eight which they already had in-house. They also purchased a fully flight cased Robe LiteWare HO2 6-way battery powered up-lighting system, available for pop-up lighting around the place as and when required.
These were the first Spiiders purchased by the Castle from Robe’s Slovenian distributor MK Light Sound. As they already had eight LEDBeam 100s, it didn’t take much persuading for them to double their stock of these powerful and extremely useful little fixtures. At the same time as kitting out the Hribar Hall, four DL4S Profiles were purchased for another venue in the Castle complex. ‘I really like the flexibility of the Spiiders” explained Tomaz. They initially trialed some units on a couple of shows, and then immediately afterwards committed to the purchase. The lights, control and all relevant cabling for Hribar Hall was supplied and installed by a team from MK Light Sound overseen by Dean Karov.
