Nightclubs and venues are always looking for ways to improve the concert going experience, whether it’s with better sound, a renovated dance floor, or even a revolutionary new ceiling. The #39 club in the world, Hakkasan, just added another reason to attend a show.
Debuting during EDC Week this year, the Las Vegas-based venue will unveil the exclusive “Hakkasan Grid.” The fixture is the largest permanent kinetic light installation in the US, made of 57 4-foot seamless and sculptural triangles that combine to form a 30-foot showpiece. Connected via 169 high-precision winches, the attraction can transform with the nightclub’s musical landscape into infinite shapes and colors above the dance floor.
Additionally, each triangle has been custom-designed and 3D-printed with premium materials in Berlin, Germany. The undertaking exhibits pixel-mapping and color-mixing technologies, making the grid the only structure of its kind that allows fully-customized images and patterns to flow seamlessly across all of the triangles both individually and collectively. James Algate, Executive Vice President of Entertainment at Hakkasan Group stated his excitement in a recent release:
“The nightlife industry requires constant evolution and excellence, and we pride ourselves on consistently rising to this challenge and providing our guests with unforgettable, transformative experiences…. We’re thrilled to yet again push the boundaries of nightlife with the new Hakkasan Grid. We’re confident that guests will be blown away by this futuristic, multisensory experience we’ve created.”
The Hakkasan Grid will be fully incorporated into the venue’s star-studded 2019 Vegas residency performances, which feature top names in music, such as Tiësto, Zedd, Steve Aoki and more.
