OMOTESANDO HILLS CHRISTMAS 2017
Omotesando Hills, a shopping complex in central Tokyo, has entered a new stage in its 11th year, with an aspiration to create and transmit "culture". To materialize this vision, Omotesando Hills has collaborated with Emmanuelle to bring fusion of Illumination and "Art" into the mall for the Christmas season. Emmanuelle’s first illumination has become a fantastical space filled with gentle and warm lights created by her 100 colors.
The illumination "Christmas Forest in 100 colors" was inspired from the scenery of layers of trees lining up along the main boulevard in Omotesando, in which this scenery was recaptured into the void of the large stairway of Omotesando Hills. 1500 mini trees in 100 different colors filled the whole void in 13.4m high, and the "Forest of Colors" spread overwhelmingly. Each mini tree wrap the light bulb in colored papers, like a lantern, to make 100 colors themselves to emit a soft and gentle light.
Inside this colorful forest, the main tree is located at the center of the large stairway with a height of 7m, which is formed by a collection of mini trees that light up in white during the open hours.
From each level, different views of the illumination are captured, to encourage visitors to walk up and down the slope naturally to make the most of the main characteristic of this building, the slope. Santa Claus and reindeers that appears inside the main tree are hidden in the forest, add playfulness to the illumination for the visitors to search around.
At the special show "Emotional Reflection" held every 30 minutes, the main tree changes its colors from white, yellow, pink, green, blue and to rainbow, with other mini trees lighting up rhythmically with the music specially composed for this occasion.
Colors, music, and light resonate and respond to each others, inviting visitors into the warm and magical Christmas.

Centrum Černý Most, Prague, Czech Republic
Centrum Černý Most is a major new retail project in Prague, delivering the developer’s vision of an iconic and luxurious retail destination. The design concept emphasized the use of light, making it a key driver in creating a luxury and indulgent experience for shoppers. Key views and entry points were defined using lighting and structures. These included illumination of the floating canopies, glowing goal posts which frame the vehicle entrance ramps, and an interactive and dynamic LED colour-changing cinema corner, providing a defining statement to the entire site.
The existing mall received a comprehensive overhaul and was given an entirely fresh design approach. Large circular features maximise the qualities of height, luxury and airiness within the space. Low glare lighting was designed to supplement this and maintain visual comfort to those navigating through the space.
Within the new mall extension, flexible, dynamic twin runs of cold cathode are hidden delicately within carefully designed coves. These change during the day from a cool colour temperature, mimicking daylight, whilst slowly transitioning into a warm and luxurious environment towards dusk.
