KINETIC LIGHTS FOR BON IVER US TOUR 2019

In fall 2019, we delivered a fully customized kinetic light installation for the stage lighting design of the Bon Iver’s tour. During their ongoing Autumn tour, Bon Iver, one the biggest bands of the decade, have been performing in front of thousands of people on stages and arenas of the stunning venues across the United States and Canada.

Kinetic Chandelier – the centerpiece of PY1 multimedia experience

In June 2019, Lune Rouge Productions launched their innovative multimedia entertainment project PY1 by Guy Laliberté in Montreal, Canada. Constructed as a pyramid-shaped 81-feet high modular space, PY1 is a travelling venue for multi-sensory experience that can host up to 1000 people at the same time. The first immersive show entitled ‘Through the Echos’ and presented in PY1 was directed by Gabriel Coutu-Dumont (Silent Partners Studio). In fall 2019, PY1 finished its Montreal residency to travel to a new location in Miami.

268 KINETIC LIGHTS newly released motor Winches L Pixel with custom light elements and our KLC 3.0 control software became a central part of this fantastic new experience and were used to build the Kinetic Chandelier — the centerpiece of the ‘Through the Echos’ show at the top of the PY1 pyramid. Along with the Kinetic Chandelier composed of 268 kinetic set pieces, the show featured 32 laser projectors, 360-degree projections, 444 LED lighting fixtures, 744,000-lumen screen, and special effects. ‘Through the Echoes’ is a one of a kind multimedia show that combines technology with powerful storytelling.

HAKKASAN GRID – the largest permanent kinetic installation in the US

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.

HAKKASAN GRID is made of the following Kinetic Lights products:
169 x Winch LED / Pixel system
57 x custom pixel-mapped LED Triangles

ELECTRIC MOONS FOR THE 10TH ANNIVERSARY OF PLOT magazine

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.
