On January 20-22 of 2017, thousands of sports fans will attend the races at the famous Austrian ski slope, the Streif. Zumtobel Group was named the official lighting partner of these Hahnenkamm Races. Visitors can look forward to the races on the Hahnenkamm slopes and entertainment near the finish line at the KitzRaceClub.
Zumtobel has combined a series of lighting solutions to showcase the KitzRaceClub. The firm developed some of the solutions specifically for the club. These customized luminaires include a series of twelve chandeliers in a large festival hall. The striking LED-based chandeliers are positioned in the heart of the central event’s venue.
The venue can also flexibly integrate the customized luminaires into the stage lighting to produce dramatic effects for events such as the traditional gala.
The lighting of the VIP area also uses a special solution from Zumtobel. The VIP area lighting uses a combination of two individual products, with a round opal Ondaria surface luminaire. Supersystem Spotlights surround the Ondaria luminaire. The solution combines a matching cowhide-covered housing blended with two-dimensional light and spot lighting to accentuate the special ambiance.
The Zumtobel Scofine pendant luminaire is in the reception area of the KitzRaceClub. The renowned South Tyrolean architect Matteo Thun designed these modular optical units to provide spot and flood light distributions.
Linaria LED battens from Zumtobel serve as side-mounted vertical mirror luminaires at the exclusive spa and beauty suite.
A total of 16 KitzRace outdoor columns illuminate the KitzRaceClub entrance. Zumtobel specially manufactured these luminaire masts for the Hahnenkamm Races. The columns can be configured to produce effects such as a curtain of light for the famous gala evening.
RGB versions of the Contrast 2 LED floodlights, which are attached to the base and the tops of the vertical support beams, offer colorful accents for the external facade.
Karl-Heinz Rüf, “Hahnenkamm Races” Project Manager from the Zumtobel Group, commented, “We will once again in 2017 make a key contribution to the Hahnenkamm Races with lighting solutions for the KitzRaceClub. We are delighted to be able to continue our long-term partnership with the Hahnenkamm Races.”
“The World Cup in Kitzbühel is an internationally renowned winter sporting event and an important presentation platform for us. Illuminating the main event’s venue has given us the opportunity to publicly demonstrate just what can be 02 achieved with indoor and outdoor lighting. By utilizing products from Zumtobel and Thorn, we have also shown how two strong brands of the Zumtobel Group perfectly complement each other. As a result, in 2017 we have once more presented ourselves as an effective full-service provider and a reliable long-term partner of the Hahnenkamm Races,” he added.
