This TV room installation creates its striking effect with a series of colour-changing LED tapes, fixed around a bespoke panel in which the screen is mounted.
The 10-watt RGBW LED strips that were selected for the project can mix four primary light pigments – red, green, blue and white (a warm-white tint was chosen) – to produce a vast palette of colours.
The LEDs are controlled by a hand-held remote, paired with one of InStyle’s inVyci-compatible multizone LED receivers. (There’s a choice of other LED controllers available.)
The panel’s LED strips are mounted in a similar fashion to those found on drop-ceiling installations. When they’re so close to a wall (or other surface), the LEDs may give unwanted reflections – so in order to avoid this, the strips are housed in frosted aluminium profiles (aka extrusions) which diffuse the light from the LEDs. This produces a smooth colour-wash effect on the surrounding wall.
This video shows how a clever RGBW LED installation lets you completely change the feel of a room.
