The Background

The new Foxes Fanstores open on Sunday 1st July, 2018, coinciding with the launch of Leicester City's new adidas 2018/19 home and away kits.

The crowd saw Vice Chairman Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha and Club Ambassador Alan Birchenall cut the ribbon to officially open the redesigned new Foxes Fanstore at a special family launch event.

The Challenge

Leicester City FC were working on a big project to refurbish thier fanstore. Located at the heart of the King Power Stadium and with an increase profile; LCFC decided it was fitting to recreate their fanstore experience.

 Award winning design and manufacturing company Kessler's International were commissioned to carry out the project and tasked Chantelle Lighting with the lighting to meet the brief.

They asked us to create two bespoke industrial style feature fitting, which included 50 raw steel shades and blackened steel frame, which would perfectly match the exposed ceiling design. These both had to replicate the detailed CAD drawing done by the designers.

Also, due to the size of both feature pendants we had to come up with a solution to be able to get them into the building as the size specified were too large to get them into the building safely.

The fittings had to be fully dali dimmable to meet the systems on site and allow for full control of the lighting.

The Solution

We set about creating the huge square and circular feature fittings; both measure a huge 2600mm diameter. However, the size of these fittings would cause issues when coming to install.

Our production team decided that both feature fittings would have to be made in two halves making access on site easier and safer for site members during the installation stage. They would then be re-joined by the team on site almost like a jigsaw puzzle.

Working to the CAD drawing gave our team a great basis to work from and allowed them to exactly replicate what the designers had envisioned.

The Result

Two bespoke feature fittings were manufactured and filled the exposed ceiling space, giving the finished interior another fantastic design feature.

The installation was also carried out to perfection, well in time for the big launch and providing a fresh modern look for the fanstore.
