Artin were appointed as the creative lighting design consultants on the hugely exciting Yotel Glasgow project. As part of the project, Artin were briefed to develop the lighting design throughout all front of house areas in the hotel, which included the ground floor mission control reception area as well as the vivid and bold Vega Restaurant and Bar, which was located on the 7th floor of the building. As part of the scheme Artin developed a number of key interactive light art pieces throughout the hotel taking the guests on an immersive and interactive journey from mission control up to Vega located on the 7th floor.

Reflection Portal (Mirror Ach)

Inspired by reflection and concentric geometry and movement, our mirror arch piece was designed to play on illusion and perception of 3D space. The digital mirror and bespoke artwork content create a digital portal which reacts to the movement which is detected within the lift lobby. The mirrored piece plays on the reflected perspective of the concentric illuminated archways, and the digital content mirrors the geometry in 3D animations drawing you into the portal and absorbing you into the digital artwork.

(Digital Matter) Feature Lift

The Digital Matter piece was inspired by exploration of space and matter, playing on the contrast of darkness, light and reflection, taking the uses of the lift on an explosive digital experience which transcends from grounded reality to an immersive fictional world of light, sound and VEGA. The lift interior absorbs the users into its black void, where all materials were selected to create a space like black void. Once the lift doors close, the digital journey begins, using bespoke digital animated artwork and sound which plays on three key concepts, Light Portals, Exposed Architecture, and Retro Sci-fi. Each of these three concepts, creates a unique and immersive journey, which plays on the twists the reality of depth and movement within the lift, leading you to the final destination of planet VEGA.

VEGA Bowling

Bringing a world’s first to VEGA, our vision for the bowling alley was to create a dynamic and interactive feature ceiling which reacts, tracks and trigger bespoke visual lighting effects with the movement of the bowling balls. We wanted the design to create an immense back drop for the bowling alley experience, delivering a completely unique installation for the VEGA bowling experience. The digitally addressable LED canopy reflects each of the bowling lanes, and allows us to create dynamic visual artworks, which reflect the movement of the bowling balls, and allowing the content to interact and flow across all lanes at once. We believe this is a world first for lighting technology being used to track bowling balls in this way and creates an amazing unique vivid backdrop for the uses of the space. Each of the bespoke artworks which have been developed for the bowling alley, play on the VEGA brand and experiences which lead up from mission control to this key element of the design.
