TREE RINGS, PARIS CLIENT: VILLE DE PARIS & COMMITTEE OF THE CHAMPS-ELYSÉES

Koert Vermeulen (principal designer) and Marcos Vinals Bassols (scenographer) created the contemporary, pure and flexible form with particular attention to nature the ring as a symbol of unity and gathering between man and nature. Three lighting rings encircle one tree out of two on The Avenue. The outside of the ring is an LED strip producing a glow of light, while the inside LED strip lights up the tree along with mirror discs reflecting the light rays in all directions. A new set of colours and dynamic sequences were also introduced along with a curtain of twinkling lights and LED up-lights.

DE KLANDERU, ENSCHEDE CLIENT: FORUMINVEST & PROWINKO

The key lighting feature in this shopping mall is the lampshade, used as an icon. It adapts to its location (suspended, wall-mounted or post-mounted) changes colour according to time and events and contains the required general lighting. Most other light sources are hidden into the architecture and interior design to deliver a well balanced design lit environment enhancing volume and materials.

IMX - IMMERSIVE EXPERIENCE, MOSCOW CLIENT: DG19

In order to enhance users’ spatial perception, ACTLD created an experience that allows visitors to get involved with space in unconventional ways. The project draws on a multi-sensory approach where architecture, lighting, sound, dynamics and interaction are fused together in the frame of storytelling to awaken all senses. The immersive experience of IMX contributes to the exploration of interfaces that merge the virtual with the physical as an opportunity to conceptualise scenarios for a story, a show or commercial branding.
