About The Hakkasan Grid
An architectural feat, The Hakkasan Grid is the largest permanent kinetic light installation in the United States, made of 57, 4-foot seamless and sculptural triangles that combine to form a 30-foot showpiece. Connected via 169 high-precision winches, the centerpiece can transform with the nightclub’s musical landscape into infinite shapes and colors above the dance floor. Each triangle was custom-designed and 3D-printed with premium materials from the brand KINETIC LIGHTS located in Berlin, Germany and features pixel-mapping and color-mixing technologies, making the grid the only structure of its kind that allows fully-customized images and patterns to flow seamlessly across all of the triangles both individually and collectively.
Controlled by a proprietary and custom software solution, The Hakkasan Grid can reshape and recolor itself in synchronization with live music, elevating and enhancing the energy within the nightclub. The Hakkasan Grid is made from the latest 3D-printing technology in order to meet the unprecedented architectural demands of this elaborate and high-powered structure. TheHakkasan Grid will be fully incorporated into the venue’s star-studded 2019 Vegas residency performances, which feature top names in music, such as Tiësto, Zedd, Steve Aoki, and more.
“The nightlife industry requires constant evolution and excellence, and we pride ourselves on consistently rising to this challenge and providing our guests with unforgettable, transformative experiences,” said James Algate, Executive Vice President of Entertainment at Hakkasan Group. “We’re thrilled to yet again push the boundaries of nightlife with the new Hakkasan Grid. We’re confident that guests will be blown away by this futuristic, multisensory experience we’ve created.”
Hakkasan Group tapped WHITEvoid, an award-winning design firm based in Berlin, Germany to bring this project to life featuring custom-made products by their in-house brand, KINETIC LIGHTS.
