The Lido (or Lido de Paris) is a Parisian cabaret located 116 bis avenue des Champs-Élysées (8th). Inaugurated in 1946 by Joseph and Louis Clerico, t is known for its exotic shows including dancers, singers, and other performers.
Context / environment
The LED staircase is the centrepiece of the entire show as it will be used back and forth on each sequence.
The staircase was existing and overused so the client didn’t have any drawings to share.
Street Co’s team of structural engineers and LED engineers had to go onsite to take measurements and to build a renovation plan to accommodate the LED flooring.
— was contracted to do the integration alongside with Street Co’.
Luminescence LED was the company contracted to project manage the AV lighting of the cabaret. Street Co’ worked closely with them to accomplish this project.
The brief was simple and straightforward:
‘What is the best product to create an LED staircase display?’
The video content was provided by Lido video design team.
Street communication specializes in the design, production and installation of LED stair displays, both indoors and outdoors from Pitch 1.9mm to 12mm outdoor. Street Co can design any custom made LED screen with any size and shape. We have a team of
structural and LED engineers to come up with all calculations and engineering drawings.
We started with a prototyping step where we have designed a simulated step and built LED accordingly to different options of electronics component and pitch.
Street Co then provided options that will be presented within a price matrix tab, where the clients have a clear vision of what they are buying:
- Resolution of the screen
- LED lamps brand
- Driver IC
- Scan rate and grayscale
- Density of pixel
- Range of the product: Eco / Standard / Premium
- Type of connection between LED lamp brand and PCB board of the screen Golden / Wire / silver
- AND PRICE
That has helped customers to have a better vision of what they will be buying and how could they leverage the price.
LED stair displays are a contemporary way to reinvent your Stair Cases. As we create various LED screen designs, at Street Co’, we also find innovative ways to enhance the urban environment; such as LED staircases. Our team will manage to find the screen type that suits the best your project, with the best resolution possible. Those LED stairs will attract people and you will see the number of customers increase rapidly. This option is a good solution to enhance presence, broadcast commercials or just communicate upcoming events and products. Those lighted stairs were made with the finest LED screens technology. These type of screens are specially designed for installations such as – stages – bars – shopping malls – elevators – showcases – stairs
Stair Case LED Screen display installation process :
We remove the front of each step (Riser) without touching the top of each step and instal the LED to fit your stairs. We then add strong transparent plexiglass for protection of the LEDs and your stairs.
The staircase had to be refurbished to accommodate and fit the newly created indoor LED staircase pitch 7mm modules. See the staircase prior installation. We have worked very closely with Lido art directors and Luminescence LED to safely install and bring the magic to Franco Dragone. If you are interested in equipping an existing staircase with LEDs or building a new staircase with LEDs feel free to fill in the form here and our team will be glad to help.

- Cabinet Weight (Kg) 40Kg/m²
We took 6 days to install the screen and the support structure with a crew of 6 staff.
When building an LED staircase, one of the biggest challenges is to work on a pre-existing one. All LED screen modules need to be tailored to the existing structure.
In particular one of Lido’s staircases had to be dismantled into 3 independent pieces. Each show requires the dismantling of the staircase 40 to 70 times.
Therefore the challenge for our team of indoor LED stair specialist was to design a light, solid, reliable, modular and easy-to-assemble LED staircase.
The staircase is being used 7 times per show for about 6 years so it has been a great success so far. The video content fits perfectly with the decor and it works very smoothly.
