Our ELECTRIC SKY illuminated the classy Vanity Fair Oscars after-party held at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts in Los Angeles last Sunday. Composed of 120 Sphere 17 with Winch XS, the sparkling array by KINETIC LIGHTS provided an intimate and festive atmosphere to the exclusive company of Academy Award guests and celebrities.
In January 2019, Berlin-based design studio WHITEvoid presented FREQUENCIES as a part of CTM Festival’s 20th anniversary. Installed at Halle am Berghain along with a skating rink, the installation features a real-time synchronization of sound waves and light across our 50 RGB Pixel Line lights.
KINETIC LIGHTS software analyses music and generates a specific color assigned to every frequency and beat. The colors move through light rods to the music and create a dazzling display in stark contrast to the brutalist architecture of the concrete hall.
In January 2019, the BMW Group celebrated the world premiere of the new BMW 7 Series in Shanghai, China. For the launch, Berlin-based studio WHITEvoid designed and directed MIRROR MIRROR, a kinetic light show. The production of the show was managed by L!VE Kingway China and was fully supported by our Kinetic Lights products. Our in-house technical team ensured the German precision of perfectly synchronized moving lights and mirrors.
The grand kinetic performance emphasized the significance of the new BMW luxury line-up on the Chinese market. The show, held in a massive venue in the bustling arts district of Shanghai, was a combination of electronic music and a live performance by Wu Tong, the famous Chinese sheng player.
This perfectly synchronized kinetic installation is made of the following Kinetic Lights products:
153 x Winch LED / Pixel system
51 x Mirror Disc light elements
and supported by:
42 ROBE lighting Pointe moving lights and 1 ROBE Mega Pointe moving lights.
As a result of nearly 15 years of groundbreaking experience in kinetic lighting, the technical team of KINETIC LIGHTS has mastered knowledge and skills to run not only indoor but also outdoor long-term light installations. STALACTITE is a massive Space Frame system hovering over the main stage of Solana light festival in Beijing, China. After a big opening show in December 2018, the installation will run for three months in the Chinese capital and can be visited any time of the day or night. The inverted network-like pyramid STALACTITE is composed of KINETIC LIGHTS’ 360 Rod light fixtures and Drivers LED.
Kinetic Lights products evolve and become more flexible and elegant with each project, meaning that now they’re even more compact to transport and faster to set up. Smartly hidden in a ground-based grid, the cabling becomes invisible and takes the pressure off technicians to organise dozens of cables connecting winches and light fixtures.
As demonstrated in ELECTRIC MOONS, the latest installation by WHITEvoid in the vast St. Maria Church in Stuttgart, our modular system made of 36 ground-based Kinetic Lights Winch XS is perfectly suited for architectural spaces that require specially tailored schemes since it is not limited in shape, layout or number of units. Also, ELECTRIC MOONS feature the new updated RGB version of our helium light Balloon. Each light fixture is easily adjusted to a real time controlled winch that enables users to instantly play with the speed and height or change colours from pale blue to flaming red.

GRID, a collaboration between light artist Christopher Bauder and electronic music composer Robert Henke, is a powerful stimulation of fundamental human emotions. GRID was presented during Volvo Art Session at at the Schiffbau Halle in Zurich on the 7th of September. 96 Winches LED and 32 Triangle Rods were used to create Bauder and Henke’s audiovisual light installation that blurs boundaries between art and technology and transports audiences to another world, both hypnotising and magical. The musician and the light artist create a space where synthesized sound becomes extension of kinetic lights moving in horizontal and vertical lines, breathing in life into interconnected machines.
A dynamic kinetic installation made out of 102 KINETIC LIGHTS Winch LED / Pixel systems, 34 Mirror Disc light fixtures and 30 ROBE Pointe moving lights was presented at the 2nd season of Apologue 2047.

ZHANG Yimou once again breaks the form of traditional stage plays combining Chinese folk arts with modern technology and thus creating a unique “concept performance”. The kinetic part MIRROR-MIRROR featuring modern beijing opera dancer Qiu Jirong was one out of 7 segments combining to create the Apologue 2047/2 show. Apologue 2047/2 will tour Chinese cities Tianjin, Xi’an and Nanjing throughout July 2018.
