Reaching the end of the year, we all almost automatically take a quiet look back. Likewise, we are now putting together a number of our most beautiful lighting projects and light displays for you. A gallery of MK Illumination activities all over the world – large and small creations our team thorougly enjoyed as they inspired their imagination and presented new challenges. Lighting designs that provided people around the globe with some happy moments throughout the day.
At Christmas time, the Hungarian capital will be lit up again by MK Illumination with the glitter and sparkle of thousands of white, red and golden stars, flowers and balls.
Decorative MK lighting effects will be used around Oktogon and Opéra, over four hundred different candelabra ornaments combined with floral and figurative MK motifs such as ‘Angel in Love’, ‘Violin’ or ‘Nordic Wind’, transforms Varoshàza Park and its surrounding main streets and squares into an impressive illuminated experience, and in Andrássy Street, 173 trees will be decorated with around two hundred thousand warm shimmering LED light points alongside our ‘ice drops’ effect light features. The spectacular winter and Christmas ornaments will be set to enchant the residents of Budapest as well as their countless guests for another four years.
A legendary meeting place for more than 250 years, the Hotel d’Angleterre in Copenhagen opened its doors for the first time in 1755, and has since been regarded as an institution of exclusivity and the ultimate in luxury for guests from all over the world. For many years, the annual Christmas decoration on the facade of this noble hotel has been an object of public interest, and its unveiling celebrated as a festival. On November 21 last year, 15,000 visitors joined in the countdown to the ‘big reveal’ – this time, King Frost at dinner with his followers was there to be admired. MK Illumination had the honour of decorating and lighting this festive scene on the roof facade of the d’Angleterre, with shining icicles made from special fibreglass.
Whoever was able to find their way from the 35 m high lighthouse in Rust, Baden Württemberg’s Europa-Park to the Hotel Bell Rock landed straight into a charming Christmas setting in New England Style, and was able to savour the real flavour of the pioneers.
The collection of colonial-style buildings was decked out in real American glitter – with red-and-white candy canes, opulent wreathes, and “Merry Christmas” lettering above the string lights on the pillars.
Over recent years MK Illumination has been responsible for creating Christmas spirit in various areas of Europa-Park, and this new pioneering decoration scheme continues our relationship with the popular attraction.
When spring awakens across the country, when the days become longer and the fields and meadows are transformed into a blooming display of nature, this is an occasion to revel in the joys of life. It is also time to celebrate with loved ones, and to turn thoughts to festive decorations. MK Illumination wishes you a Happy Easter.
