The Rendezvous Casino is much more than a casino; it is one of Leeds' premier event and party venues. Located at Clarence Dock, the vibrant venue provides a real feast for the senses with its opulent décor, innovative dining and all-action gaming.
Spread over four floors the grand casino houses two state of the art gaming floors and a self-contained gaming suite for those who want to try their hand on the live tables and slot machines, a stunning 50 seater private cinema, a host of chic bars, and two fine dining restaurants serving a range of culinary delights. A private dining room and large function room is also available for banquets, family celebrations and conferences.
UFO was contracted by Cannock Electrical & Mechanical of Staffordshire to manufacture and install 9 identical custom fibre optic chandeliers within the Rendezvous. The brief required the chandeliers to fill the vast ceiling space in the main gaming area of the casino.
The chandeliers were constructed from MDF and covered with a mirror finished laminate to reflect the light and add a touch of glamour. The fibre optic tails were fed through the top plates of the chandeliers prior to them being recessed into the ceiling. Two circular rings were then suspended from the base of each chandelier, encasing the fibre and giving the lighting features a fuller body. Six spotlights were sunken into each of the lower rings to provide functional lighting to the casino floor below.
Each of the chandeliers were powered using a 150W metal halide light source and around 450 fibre optic tails staggered in length, with the longest measuring 4 metres.
