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.
Huma eleven, Vienna’s most modern shopping center at Simmering, comes alive on November 24, with the illumination of a spectacular 19.5 meter Christmas Comet crowned by what is probably Europe’s largest illuminated star, all glistening with 9,000 points of light. The center has a Christmas market, with Advent singing and childcare, and a magnificent 12-meter Christmas tree with 12,000 LEDs and 1,200 Christmas balls. The idea for the comet Christmas decoration came from huma eleven’s manager Stephan Kalteis: “We set standards in Austria in matters of design, as you can see by our huge fountain. So we also wanted to do something special with our Christmas decoration. What could be better than a dazzling comet in XXL format?” Another example of very special MK Illumination creative lighting and festive decoration!

The historical roots of ‘Leinenweberei’, the textile art from Ried im Innkreis, date back to the 18th century, and are the reason behind the Weberzeile shopping mall name. For the 2015 Christmas decorations, MK Illumination adopted this beautiful reference as the jewelry motif for illuminated design objects and created impressive handmade knitted covers for the glittering lights. The organic forms of our Arundo reeds from the original knitted fabrics of the region were adapted to the architecture of Weberzeile, and provided a completely harmonious atmosphere with its warm white light. The suitably festive decoration on the facade and over the entrance was part of MK Illumination’s totally integrated concept and transformed Weberzeile into an attractive destination point.
