Almost a year of our committed collaboration with Hakkasan Group resulted in the awe-inspiring kinetic installation HAKKASAN GRID. The introduction of HAKKASAN GRID led to the technology-driven transformation of Hakkasan Nightclub at MGM Grand Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. This custom-made installation is the largest permanent kinetic installation in the United States. The club unveiled HAKKASAN GRID during Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas (EDC) in May along with DJs sets by the EDM legends like Tiësto, Steve Aoki, and Calvin Harris.
The HAKKASAN GRID is a multimillion-dollar, custom-built kinetic light installation that sets the benchmark for luxury nightlife throughout the world and breaks down silos between entertainment, art, and technology. It is an immersive dancing ceiling that enhances the venue’s previous design and transforms the show experience for the club’s audiences. Made of 57, 4-foot seamless and sculptural custom-made KINETIC LIGHTS pixel-mapped LED triangles, HAKKASAN GRID forms a 30-foot showpiece. Connected via 169 high-precision KINETIC LIGHTS Winch LED / Pixel, the centerpiece can transform into infinite shapes and colors. For this massive project, we developed a brand-new version of our KLC software and implemented pixel-mapping with MADRIX lightning control into the existing LED ceiling of Hakkasan Club.
