DUBLIN, Ireland — Dublin’s Old Jameson Distillery offers a warm welcome to the hundreds of visitors per day who pour through the doors for its tour of the Irish whisky making process. The attraction recently upgraded various areas throughout the venue using fixtures from the Iluminarc and CHAUVET Professional brands. Designed and installed by Gorilla Design, supplied by QLX Lighting, the area now presents a more unified look, which for guests is the first point of contact with the brand.

The installation encompassed the main reception area, café, stairwell and underfloor of the attraction. The cellar area is lit by Ilumiline Logic 12 fixtures, chosen over battens because of their slim line profile, hiding better beneath the metal frame suspending the glass floor. The linear solutions provide an exquisite combination of traditional and modern look, lighting in deep colors the stone foundation preserved in the old building of the distillery, located in the Smithfield area of Dublin.

A welcoming feel was created using 24 of the resourceful CHAUVET Professional COLORado™ 1-Tri Tour fixtures, 24 CHAUVET Professional COLORdash™ Par Tri-18 VW wash lights powered by seven cool and warm white LEDs, for purer whites and a color temperature selection ranging from the warm and inviting to crisp, cold shades. Additionally, six CHAUVET Professional wireless event LED luminaires and charging case WELL™ 2.0 systems were used as flexible lighting solutions throughout the venue for private events.

Gorilla Design deployed an iLight control system to create a fully controllable lighting solution for the multifunction event space, with energy efficiency managed for low running and maintenance costs.

Rob Jones, Gorilla Design MD and Director of QLX Lighting, explains, “Gorilla Design is known and praised for its creative designs and use of event space, so when we were asked to design this lighting upgrade, we knew we’d use Iluminarc and Chauvet. It’s essential to know the lighting effects you’ve designed will continue without any problems for some time to come. We use the Iluminarc range of lighting for its superior quality at a competitive price. Iluminarc is perfect for high-impact event spaces such as the Old Jameson Distillery because of its reliability and the beautiful high-definition colors it can create.”
