The Shops at Crystals, a luxury mall in Las Vegas, wanted to celebrate spring with a unique centerpiece that would surprise and delight visitors, and that would also complement the upmarket tenants and brands in the center.
Working with MK Illumination and LedsArt, The Shops at Crystals launched a worldwide competition that invited designers to submit their creative ideas for the theme “The Art of Spring”. The winning entry submitted by artist and designer Danny X was entitled “(e)motion activated spring”, and featured a display of lilies that combined design, light, music and motion.
Artisans in MK Illumination’s MK Themed Attractions division in the Philippines turned the winning design into a combined fiberglass and light sculpture and in May, the completed artwork was installed in the heart of the mall.
The dimensions were huge, with one display measuring 4.6m x 3.9m and the other 2.6m x 3.2m. One of the flowers contained a trigger that caused music to play and the petals of the flower to open and close when activated. Over 7,000 living flowers were planted around the lilies, adding a natural touch that complements the artwork and contributed to the spring-like atmosphere at The Shops at Crystals.
