Asylum Adds Bling to Pipe with Colorful LED Crystals

UK technological engineers Asylum were approached with a private commission, requiring a domestic installation a pipe covered in crystals that lit up to decorate a construction feature within a room. A base structure was fabricated for fitting the electronics onto. The RGB LED modules were made up of three individual colored lights and could give a range of over 16 million colors.

The number of pipes fitted totaled 2,912, amounting to almost 9,000 LEDs. They were all controlled by an industrial embedded Linux computer for added reliability, which hosted a webpage, accessible by mobile phone. This allowed the client to customize colors and patterns at a click of a button.
