Night clubbers are looking for something exciting. The design of the Omni Nightclub Taipei creates a mysti-cal atmosphere through a multi-faceted lighting scenario in a sophisticated architecture. The light streams through the space in linear guidance via a perfectly integrated transitional plane. This evokes attention-grabbing images that condense into an appealing scenario of circles, triangle and rectangles. Organic curves and arcs create the impression of action and mobility. The architecture of this club follows a distinctive symmetrical outline. The design divides the space into two sides, each offering its own realm of experience. The central area in the front establishes a large, almost empty looking area with seats for social interaction. Clear guiding lines allow club visitors to move around freely and smoothly. Curved stairs on both sides guide visitors up to the second floor, inviting them to look down from the seat areas placed on the left and right. The light alternates between light and dark, showcasing different exciting shapes as the colours change. In combination with the spatial design, the performance of the spotlights evokes an intensive sensory experience. A symbiotic fusion of architectural forms with light, the club has emerged as a distinctive and highly appealing world of its own.
