SLS Casino Light Walking and Night Dancing

Project Description

As part of a $415 million renovation to the former Sahara Hotel & Casino property, D3 consulted with KT designers to develop the digital glass floor at the casino entrance and a semitransparent LED mesh display within the LiFE nightclub.

As the central feature welcoming guests into the mixed-use resort and casino, D3 engineered a high bright LED lighting solution beneath the glass floor creating glowing colors, movement and shapes beneath your feet. Fritted glass captures the light onto the surface of the floor generated by 5,248 of D3’s Dynamic Dots which illuminate the floor from below. Each dot produces one pixel of the complete video image and is individually controllable via Madrix software. Mirrored ceiling and floor tiles reflect the lighting throughout the expansive entry leading into the casino and retail shopping by Fred Segal.

SLS’s premier nightclub LiFE also received the D3 treatment with a free hanging mesh LED display integrated with the sound system to sync display content with music. Designed with linear apertures to create transparency and high contrast black finishes, the video display creates a hologram feeling by allowing light to illuminate from behind. Heightened with dramatic theatrical flood accents shining from the back, the black finishes create the illusion of an invisible display when paired against the black backdrop of the nightclub. LiFE’s premier and up and coming DJ talents create a vibrant dance experience of light, sound and movement with D3’s mesh display as the anchoring central canvas.
