The Max Award winning costume designer Felype de Lima was the creative director and Eduardo Valverde from the Experencias Visuales design studio was the lighting designer. For the operational implementation, Valverde worked with LetsGo’s project manager Jan Mylle and Juan Lopez, who was responsible for the technical installation, among others.

Specific Challenges

When selecting appropriate spotlights, the focus was on outdoor suitability in accordance with IP65, efficient luminous flux and the flexibility of the accessories. The spotlights had to provide the option to work with easy-to-change diffusers in order to facilitate operation in any desired position.

“The Botanic Garden’s diverse plant life was not to be damaged or affected by the additional lighting.”

Jan Mylle, LetsGo project manager

Valverde and his team used a total of 130 Cameo ZENIT® W600 outdoor LED wash lights and 22 Cameo ZENIT® Z180 G2 PAR spotlights from the Spanish rental provider FLUGE Audiovisuales. The ZENIT® W600 were used to bathe the trees and plants throughout the botanical gardens in uniform coloured light. The LED wash lights were equipped with Cameo SNAPMAG® DIFFUSOR W600 100 diffusers to ensure a wide beam angle of 100°. The Cameo ZENIT® Z 180 with integrated zoom showcased the water fountain’s statues with great effect.

“The spotlight performs excellently and the colour blending is perfect for the requirements of the selected application.”
