Instagrammable rooms in Cityhub Hotels
A futuristic concept. Cityhub is THE hotel where you need to go if you're looking for an innovative concept where there's also room to connect with other guests. At Cityhub, you stay in a so-called 'hub'. These are sleeping units with a king-size matrass, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and room for your clothes. The RGBW pixel-controlled LED strips that OneEightyOne delivered for Cityhub Copenhagen and Rotterdam to put around the beds, completely top off this concept. Staying up late is going to be a party with the speakers and self-controllable LED light.
About the Project
Plug & play prepared in our workshop
All LED lines and control boxes are completely assembled beforehand in our workshop. The strips are already installed in our workshop in parts that fir the hub, like the framing of the bed. The local installer provided all cabling which made it possible for the LED objects to be connected quickly and ensured that everything was up and running quickly. After everything was installed, our engineers set up the system.
To create the most beautiful colour fades, we wanted to control every pixel individually and use RGBW LEDs. To prevent voltage loss, we used RGBW pixel-controlled LED strips on 12V. To prevent the hub from consuming power while not being used, we integrated a relay switch in the control box that is connected to the DiGidot controller.
DiGidot seamlessly integrated in an app
To make it as easy as possible for the guests of Cityhub, they developed an app themselves. With this app, it was already possible for their guests to manage everything regarding their stay, but now they can also control the lighting individually for each hub with the app. This is possible because we used individually controllable LEDs powered by the DiGidot C4, which is integrated by API in an app. This app has a lot of possibilities to easily create a suitable ambiance. There are endless possibilities for scenes to choose from, for example 'romantic', 'disco', 'focus' and more.
'We prepared everything in our workshop to make it easy to install in Copenhagen. This was one of the first projects I worked on and it was immediately big and international. It was a lot of fun to do with a great end result!'
