Brazilian Nightclub LED Lights are controlled by clubbers
A Brazilian nightclub has LED lights that are controlled by the people in the space. The work on this venue was done by architect, Guto Requena.
He has created an interactive dance floor that has transformed the industrial space into an inspired venue in Vila Nova Leopoldina, Sao Paolo.
The club is known as ‘The Year’, the space has also recently been used for film productions. It has two separate dance floors including an area for shows, a VIP area, three bars, restrooms, and a dressing room.
The LED lights for this Brazilian nightclub have been designed using geometric patterns that occur in nature. It references cells found in nature and was created with a parametric design process which was used for the hallway and ceilings detail. The recurring pattern is a digital look that appears in different areas.
‘The Year’ has a strong identity thanks to its original design. The inner dance floor of this Brazilian night club has an interactive LED cage that responds to various sensors installed within the space.
What it results in is a one of a kind dance floor that mimics the clubbers’ movements.
The DJ area can even be transformed into a stage and the entire area of the club is flexible too. It can be rearranged according to requirements for any party that they may be hosting. The DJ can also control the light effects with his own dance movements which are picked up via a body sensor.
The two bars are situated next to a stair case that goes up to the first floor, which is where you would find the VIP area and dressing room.
The terrace sports a retractable roof complete with a green garden area that makes for a perfect space for intimate and smaller shows such as sunset parties.
