Harrod – Chanel

Brief:

Commissioned by Impact retail on behalf of Chanel, we were asked to create a kinetic LED system that would illuminate and animate three of Harrods’ prime windows for the Christmas season.

What we did:

We installed and programmed a state of the art LED system, which displayed as a wave of varying colours over three windows, that illuminated the ‘CHANEL’ letters.

The Challenges

Coordinating with a very high-profile store during their busiest time of year to ensure that we had the time we needed, while not disturbing them or their customers.

Blackheart – Camden

The Brief

As a Heavy Metal/ Punk Bar the venue wanted a budget solution to install a new stage rig for their live music events.

The Installation

To rig the intelligent fixtures, two ali poles were rigged at the front and back of the stage, to light both the stage and the dance area.

The Challenges

The main complication was that the venue was situated on the first floor and the building had no lift, meaning all the equipment, including the long poles; had to be carried up the stairs.

Royal Arcade

The Brief

To add a Christmas-y feel to the historic arcade while still complying with the style of the building.

The Installation

We installed warm white fairy lights to keep a vaguely authentic feel and to tie in with the festive garlands. These were draped and grouped over the stores, between and around the plants. This was installed at the same time as the trees and plants, over one day with two technicians.

The Challenges

The real challenges came from the age of the building. As the building is listed, no fixings are allowed to be used to hold the lights in place and nothing can be used that would damage the lead paint or the building itself.

Covent Garden

The Brief

In partnership with designers Free Alps, we were asked to provide Christmas Lighting throughout the old Market.

The Installation

To create classic Christmas lighting, we used different types of fairy lights, adapting the idea of a Winter Wonderland, tying in with Free Alps design ethic. The fairy lights were shaped and installed to look like plants crawling up the building. We also installed several bespoke chandeliers in the smaller areas of the market. The effect created a truly magical experience for all the festive visitors.

The Challenges

The main challenge was the age and size of the building as all the fixtures had to be installed safely without damaging the iconic building.
