Benson’ Audiovisuel Reflects Spirit of Grands Moulins de Bordeaux With CHAUVET DJ

The estate of Couhins-Lurton was prominently featured in the recent 100th anniversary celebration of the Grands Moulins de Bordeaux. Accentuating the intricate architectural qualities of the château during this event was a collection of wireless, battery powered CHAUVET DJ lighting fixtures installed by Benson’ Audiovisuel. Casting their evocative glow on the building’s exquisitely detailed cornice and majestic façade, the energy-efficient LED fixtures endowed the iconic setting with a vibrant energy that made history come alive for the visitors who gathered there on this festive occasion.

The Benson’ Audiovisuel design team, under the direction of Benjamin Faure, positioned 12 Freedom H1 par units below the ornate cornice to highlight its details. Thanks to its compact size and wireless properties, the 10W fixture was able to fit unobtrusively on the site without distracting from its aesthetics. Drawing on the fixture’s RGBAW + UV color mixing engine, the design team was able to create a wide and varied palette of hues during the event.

Bathing the building’s façade in an array of richly saturated colors were 24 Freedom Flex H4 IP uplighting fixtures. With their intense output, these units were able to send smooth, even fields of light high up the exterior walls of the château.

A group of 16 freestanding Freedom Stick RGB LED linear fixtures was used to enliven the estate grounds, as well as provide a colorful setting on the dancefloor inside during the party. Also generating excitement on the dancefloor were a Derby X effect light, a Line Dancer that projects intense strips of colorful light, and two mini Kinta beam units.

Like the outdoor fixtures, these units were controlled via a CHAUVET DJ Flare Con. Working together, they filled the dancefloor inside the 18th century château with pulsating excitement.
