“Rheinriff,” recognised as one of the world’s largest indoor surfing facilities, has unveiled its innovative lighting system, marking a significant milestone in creating a truly immersive experience for visitors. Partnering with lighting providers Oktalite and TRILUX, Rheinriff has transformed its space into a multifunctional venue where lighting seamlessly adapts to various usage scenarios, thanks to the cutting-edge LiveLink Retail lighting management system.

Situated within the historic industrial hall on Düsseldorf’s “Areal Böhler,” Rheinriff spans approximately 6,000 sqm, offering an indoor surf hall, event space, and coworking area. Employing clear strategies in design, the venue focuses on establishing a strong brand, creating an authentic atmosphere, and developing a differentiated, experience-oriented spatial structure. Central to this vision are high-quality, intelligent lighting solutions provided by Oktalite and TRILUX.

The lighting design at Rheinriff seamlessly integrates the diverse requirements of functional zones, ensuring a cohesive experience from the central “standing wave” to the reception, catering, and work areas. Utilising cylindrical black track spotlights as a consistent element, the design incorporates both B.VEO SPOTLIGHTS and LENTY TRACK SPOTLIGHTS to meet varying brightness requirements and room heights.

A highlight of the surfing hall is the design element inspired by the “RheinRiff” logo, forming an illuminated hexagon above the surfing pool. This centrepiece features SO-TUBE LED luminaires from TRILUX, enhancing the venue’s visual appeal and reinforcing its brand identity.

The LIVELINK Retail control system is central to the lighting system’s functionality, enabling individual, efficient, and convenient illumination of functional areas. Wireless connectivity via Bluetooth LE Mesh allows seamless integration of several hundred luminaires into a network divided into function-related groups and zones, all operable via tablet or smartphone for intuitive control.
