In order to make the technical installation as invisible as possible in heritage spaces , a metallic hoop of 14 m in diameter, manufactured to measure, was leaned against the perimeter of the main ceiling rose. Its U-shaped profile accommodates all wiring and drivers. It is painted in the RAL gold color of the room. The installation is rigged 12 m high.

High performance SORAA led engines have been choosen .
The RAAT and RAMO projector's houses have been transformed in order to be integrated in the hoop. More than 500 indexed sources are used. The light is controlled under B2P/DMX protocol, programmed and restored by a Pharos Architectural Controls. Specific lighting fixtures have been developed for 7 types of game tables.

Casino de Monte Carlo management wanted to unify the Europe, Renaissance and America rooms. "Lack of relief, the chandeliers have a strong luminous intensity, little contrast or hierarchy in the enhancement of the period decorations, no strong scenario. The concept proceeds from the highlighting of a large number of particular points of the architecture and heritage elements by punctual touches of light. The touches sculpt the volumes and give relief by contrast.

A series of dynamic recorded sequences with colorimetric variations, corresponding to the hours of the different activities of the Casino, are automatically restored 24H/24.
