The city of Kassel offers a whole range of historic monuments and locations, and is especially famous because of the brothers Grimm, who spent a good thirty years of their lives in the city during their “most active and possibly most fruitful times of their working lives”. It was during this time that many of their famous fairytales were created. For Christmas decorations for the shopping centre Dez Kassel, MK Illumination went straight to these fairytales for inspiration, and from the stories’ characters created discrete motifs for Christmas balls and individually printed banderols. The traditional green garlands and trees with elegant Christmas balls in Bordeaux, opal red and gold added a magic touch to the festive atmosphere. And between classic and modern, the Light Chair added very special charm and was especially popular for selfies.
A premiere in Hungary – for the first time a whole street was decorated with monumental, as well as elaborate, filigree light motifs for an ongoing Christmas installation.
The ‘fashion street’ of Budapest shone in the Advent period with oversized, 2.50m high heeled shoes, umbrellas, handbags, packages and cocktail dresses that decorated the way to a 10m high tree of brilliant Crystal String Lites. Countless visitors (and Hungarian Television viewers!) were charmed by the new Christmas look, and Deak Ferenc Street was named the most atmospheric place of the Advent season.
While we frolic in the summer sun, all the wires for the festive decorative lighting glow with winter Christmas sparkle in our factory in Presov, Slovakia.
Our staff manufactures by hand and with great care more than 30,000 light motifs in various designs and sizes. They are already shipped across the globe in September so that people can enjoy our MK Illumination light creations just in time for the first snow.
