Colour changing lights in Apollo 70

The recently finished Apollo 70 Airstream Bar has been fitted with coloured mood lights and a twinkling ‘starry ceiling’ plus colour changing lights around the outside of the serving hatch. These lights create different moods for different events and also look spectacular as they reflect off of the highly polished interior and exterior of the Airstream.

In the ARC workshop – the Airstream bar project is nearly finished. Here you can see the newly installed colour changing LED lights turning the whole Airstream fuchsia, the Airstream glowing at night showing the TV and the twinkling star light LED ceiling. These blurry snaps are just a taster of what’s to come as we’ve just had a pro-photoshoot of the project with our ace Airstream photographer Jeremy Phillips and we’ll be showing you some big glossy snaps of the finished Airstream next week!

In the Workshop – finishing touches for this Airstream bar project

Darren in the Airstream Bar

In the workshop today the Airstream bar is receiving some finishing touches. Pictured above, Darren and our client Richard discuss fitting the coffee machine. Inside the bar has been fitted with a twinkling LED starry ceiling and colour changing LEDS. It also has carbon fibre doors and some colour changing LEDS on the outside too so people can spot it at any event.

Lava Lamp Lighting

Back to the Lava Lamp Airstream today and a closer look at the lighting. As previously mentioned, the whole design is based on the inside of the Lava Lamp and there’s one recessed into the wall between the kitchen and the rear seating area:

Running along the ceiling is a panel fitted with hundreds of twinkling ‘stars’

There are also some LEDs positioned around the main seating area

Different lamps and spotlights are positioned throughout to illuminate the bathroom and the various cocktail making surfaces:

The mood lighting can be controlled by remote control with a round controller to alter the colour, the speed of the twinkling and flashing and the brightness of the lights in different areas. In combination with the surround sound stereo system and various gadgets such as the wine cooler and popcorn machine this Airstream has been a very interesting job for our electrician Terry who originally learned his trade as a helicopter electrician for the Royal Navy.

Groovy Baby! It’s the Orange and Purple Lava Lamp Airstream…

A visual feast for you today as this Airstream is really starting to take shape, demonstrating the versatility of the design team here at ARC. If the customer wants minimalist, we can do minimalist – or if they want something bright and bold and inspired by iconic design, we can do that too!

This client wants to stand out from the crowd with a retro style interior which has been inspired by the colours of a lava lamp. This is the Airstream with the starry ceiling which I have mentioned in previous posts. It’s also going to have a cocktail cabinet and a periscope. At the moment Darren and the team are busy fitting the stereo and the dazzling purple and orange cabinets and drawers with retractable handles – take a look at all of these lovely pics to see how it’s coming along:
