“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.

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.

 

Christmas Sparkle in Tallinn – a Community Initiative

Year after year, a special initiative gives the popular ‘Rävala Park’ in Tallinn, the capital of Estonia, the most atmospheric Christmas sparkle. The city’s businesses are invited to decorate a tree in the Park at their own expense, or rather to implement MK Illuminations’ creative ideas for attractive Christmas lights throughout. After a festively decorated opening ceremony led by the mayor, ‘Rävala’ was once again Advent’s ever-popular excursion destination. Steadily, new companies, along with their decorated trees are being added, and in this way, Tallinn’s pleasure park grows as an ever brighter shining symbol of a beautiful community initiative.

Great Atmosphere for Beef Steak House in Montreal

Boeuf Rouge calls itself a pretty unique steakhouse. Just a few kilometres outside of Montreal, it practices the principle of bring-your-own-wine while offering a very cosy atmosphere. To visually support the unique branding of Rouge Boeuf, we staged a Christmas dream in red with our LED string lites within the restaurant windows – budgeted accordingly, this simple and effective lighting concept not only supported the cosy atmosphere inside the restaurant, but also communicated a welcome invitation to the outside from afar. Bon appetit!

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!
