Onyx waterfall with two types of dynamically lit systems
Design-engineering bureau company "Biruza" (after rebranding – DALID, LLC) has successfully completed the project “Onyx waterfall with two types of dynamically lit systems”, in the interior of the private family residence in Concha Zaspa town, Kiev region.
Project goals and objectives
To create "an engineering marvel" in the form of interior waterfall and to fit it in harmoniously fit with the private family residence interior.
Key wishes of the Customer
- maximal product exclusivity;
- natural materials for the waterfall working area;
- innovative implementations in dynamic lightning and LED optics;
- harmonious product merging with the family residence interior;
- overall dimensions of waterfall 4600x4600 mm;
- automatic water installation system of waterfall, which includes draining, filling up, water level maintaining, water filtration, disinfection, water conditioning and purification;
- remote control;
- maximum service lifetime of the product (at least 20 years).
11 months taking into account related works performed by Customer (stained-glass windows, floor).
- waterfall dimensions including the upper and lower boxes – 4600x4600 mm;
- dimensions of the visible part made of onyx 4500x3900 mm;
- the lower box facing — marble;
- the upper box facing and decorative vertical struts — composite mirror gold;
- waterfall working area — onyx marble, “transmission-mode”.
The equipment of water installation system
- automatic water installation system of waterfall, which includes draining, filling up, water level maintaining, water filtration, disinfection, water conditioning and purification, based on reverse osmosis equipment (for distilled water);
- system of pressure waterfalls;
- automatic system of adjustment of water flow.
The first dynamically lit system of waterfall
Parallel to the working area made of onyx, on the back side, over the whole plain face 4600x4000mm there is a mounted matrix consisted of 2240 LED modules of white light which provide an opportunity to the back transparency for the whole waterfall structure. The system is equipped with a programmable industrial controller, power supply and remote control.
Due to the onyx marble property to scatter gently the light flux of the light source placed behind it, we have achieved a holistic transparency effect of onyx construction. While illuminating from the backside with light-emitting diodes, white light appears to be born from the stone structure and gets a nice light honey color.
Each of the 2,240 LEDs is controlled by programs from the controller. Alternating sequence of switching on and off accordingly by program, you can receive a variety of lighting effects.
We have programmed the controller for three dynamically lit programs with the ability to adjust their intensity with the help of the remote control. The first program is a light wave moving from top to bottom over the waterfall plane. The second one is a light rain. The third one is the stars appearance (there was used a method of random numbers).
The second dynamically lit system of waterfall
The second dynamically lit system of waterfall is built with the use of RGB- directed LED optics. The function of this system is a color lit, directed, facade lighting of onyx.
The system is equipped with its own controller, power supply and remote control. With the help of the remote control the user can set any color (blue, green, red, etc.) or run one out of 10 dynamic color lightning effects. The system is installed in the lower decorative box and have bottom-up functioning.
The waterfall leaves special fascinating and charming impression in the evening. Magic game of color and light in the crystal, sparkling stream of water takes you to the fabulous world, gives family members and guests the powerful atmosphere of relaxation, harmony, comfort and fireside comfort.
