“Edison XL” – A Brilliant RETRO Development In The MK Illumination Range Of Products

Bulbs Installation

The timeless design of the good old tungsten light bulb is in the process of disappearing from our households. MK Illumination is dedicating another example of its own product development to bring this popular classic and piece of nostalgia back to the streets and squares of the world in over- dimensional size.

We are pleased to offer our Edison XL 36 Volt in the following versions:

· „Edison XL“ – the model in warmwhite and brilliantwhite, in two different sizes
· „Edison XL RGBW“ – the innovative version as RGBW – each individually controllable with DMX
· „Edison XL Kinetic/RGBW“ – the high-end version for especially spectacular and emotionally charged projects.

There are various possible uses for the “Edison XL”, either as single decorative elements, in combination with Snowballs or Supernovas, or aesthetically arranged as an entire tree. We were able to demonstrate a first impression of how these retro bulbs are so wonderfully effective today when integrated into modern design by demonstrating the “„Edison XL Kinetic/RGBW“ as part of a special lighting installation at our 20th Anniversary celebrations last September.

Now we take pleasure in inviting you to our MK Illumination trade fair stand (Hall 11.0/D40) and to ABRAXUS by MK Illumination in Hall 11.0/C.78 at “Christmasworld” in Frankfurt (27th to 31st January 2017). See for yourself how effective these bulbs can be.

Interactive Christmas Amusement in Copenhagen’s Fisketorvet Shopping Centre

For years, MK Illumination has drenched Copenhagen’s Fisketorvet Shopping Centre in festive light. For the past holiday season, the light installations were not only redesigned, but also enhanced with a sympathetic interactive element. A photo point for visitors’ selfies was installed in front of a handcrafted gold-starred Christmas tree. Using the special hashtag, these images were projected automatically on a corresponding screen, thereby becoming part of a competition awarding the most beautiful and most amusing photo creations of the week with cinema tickets.

The photos could also be printed out directly on site using an Instagram printer and taken home as a souvenir. Running parallel to this, the Fisketorvet shopping paradise offered an interactive charity initiative for “Save the Child”. Each customer donation caused a flash of blue lights on the tree and the gift was topped up by the shopping centre with €5 – turning charitable giving into an interactive party game!

3D-Stars for Mahon Point

For the Christmas season, bright stars – oversized and in 3D – granted all their radiant power to Mahon Point, the biggest luxury shopping mall in Cork, Ireland.  Long famous, Mahon Point caters to an average 110,000 visitors per week throughout the year.

The 340,000 square meters of high quality shopping space was used to stage a true Christmas experience. The oldest symbol of peace, light and prominence – the star – shone here with gold foil light in various, customized 3D fibreglass varieties, and provided a unique atmosphere in Mahon Point.

In cooperation with ‘Creation Group’, a detailed Santa Claus residence was installed in classic New England style, which ably offered animated characters as well as all kinds of music and dance events for a generously sized audience. ‘Family Fun for Free’ – was the happy Christmas message.

Christmas in Pioneer Style – the Hotel Bell Rock in Europa-Park

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.
