PRODUCT WATCH: LED neon strip lighting in the spa

To understand the creative possibilities and boundaries of lighting design, Hotel Designs asks Timage Architecture to share why LED neon strip lighting should be considered in the spa and wellness area…

We have long promoted the benefits of buying a marine-grade product for architectural application and have a dedicated Timage Architecture side to our business which focuses our product range for this specific audience.

The quality of materials and design consideration that goes into a product originally destined for yacht application is generally much greater than its architectural counterpart.  The materials not only offer a better overall aesthetic but also are very durable and can sustain a more aggressive installation environment.  These characteristics sit well with those looking to source sustainable product solutions for the hospitality sector.  Our products are more suited to clients looking to buy once, perhaps paying a small premium over an alternative product but being sure that they will not have to revisit the item once again after a season or two of use.

Nowhere in a hospitality setting is the above situation truer than in a spa.  The humidity levels, use of chemicals and temperatures can all culminate in poor product performance or failure, especially with regards to lighting.  Too often steam rooms have failed strip lighting under the seating or showers have fittings with a few diodes out.  These maintenance issues can have a negative impact upon the customer’s experience and overall perception of the spa.  Our marine-grade lighting can help resolve this problem, offering the hospitality sector a reliable and beautiful solution.

Our range of neon flexible LED strips is one of the best examples of these transferable products.  The neon strip lights are produced to the length required for each installation and the connectors are then injection moulded to ensure a safe IP68 underwater rating.  Lengths up to 20 metres can be specified if powered from both ends and a 24Vdc low voltage input makes them a safe product should any of the outer skin be breached.  The strips are available in a huge variety of colour temperatures as well as fixed colours.  In addition, RGB, RGBW and RGB pixel chasing versions can also be specified.  The RGBW models can be supplied in several white colour temperatures to sit alongside the coloured chips.  RGBW offers the ultimate flexibility for a lighting plan allowing the user to select custom blended colours or run colour sequences whilst still maintaining the option of a high-quality white light.  This year sees the addition of CCT technology or Correlated Colour Temperature to the range which allows users to adjust the strip from warm through to cool white at the touch of a button.  CCT is a great choice for spaces that may have a dual function requiring different ambient lighting styles or simply for those who like to tweak and change their lighting settings from time to time.

We have a large range of spa lighting solutions in addition to the neon strip lighting mentioned above and can supply luminaires for swimming pools, communal areas, shower enclosures and exterior zones.  Our lighting is always made from marine-grade materials and features the latest LED technology, rigorously tested for harsh environment application.  Please contact us for further product information or advice on spa lighting.

The cutting-edge design of the spa at The Langley is envisioned by award-winning interior design company Dennis Irvine Studio…

Opening late 2018, The Langley, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Buckinghamshire, which will join a growing ensemble of over 100 Luxury Collection hotels and resorts around the world, will open what is billed to be a world-class spa.

Creating a new design gem in the heart of the Buckinghamshire countryside, The Langley, which is the sister hotel to The Wellesley Knightsbridge, will be owned and managed by City & Country Hotels Ltd.

Located within the Langley Park estate, the 41-key boutique hotel and spa is set within 500 acres of idyllic countryside. The hotel is comprised of two buildings, a historic Grade II* listed mansion that was the former estate of the Duke of Marlborough and a Grade II listed outbuilding that was formerly used as a stables and a brew house.

Encompassing an impressive area of 1,600m2, The spa will feature a number of distinct areas

Tasked to bring the vision of a cutting-edge spa to life is award-winning interior design firm Dennis Irvine Studio, which also created the design concept for The Wellesley and the two Wellesley yachts. A number of distinctive and bespoke design features will be evident throughout the striking space, with neutral hues and metallic elements that create a contemporary, luxurious feel.

“One of the unique elements of the project is that we have designed ‘a SPA within a SPA’ an expansive VIP suite which includes exclusive access and privacy with the following amenities – relaxation, steam & sauna rooms, experience showers, hydro pools, double treatment room and a modern interpretation of a traditional hammam,” said Dennis Irvine, the founder and Director of Dennis Irvine Studio. “All designed to exacting standards and a timeless luxury aesthetic.”

Encompassing an impressive area of 1,600m2, The spa will feature a number of distinct areas. Five spacious treatment rooms complete with individual changing areas will provide a comfortable setting in which guests can experience a number of authentic and personalised treatments, while two thermal areas, one of which is designated female-only, will boast features including a vitality pool, sauna, steam room, hammam and heated relaxation loungers.

A VIP suite which spa guests will be able to book exclusively will offer the utmost privacy, equipped with a private relaxation space, vitality pool, Juniper sauna, Amethyst steam room and hammam along with private changing facilities. A further standout feature at the centre of the spa will be a bespoke 16-metre indoor swimming pool with an infinity edge, designed by Aqua Platinum. A number of relaxation spaces will be available to guests, one of which will be designated female only, with other spaces including a manicure and pedicure studio, hair salon and lounge serving an array of nourishing dishes and drinks, creating a social hub for guests.

Once opened, the Langley spa and gym facility will be open to hotel residents, day guests and members.
