Kempinski lighting, Bratislava, Slovakia

Completed 2010
Client: Kempinski Hotels
Team: FoRM Associates Partner in charge Peter Fink

An interactive permanent lighting scheme animating facade of the newly built Kempinski Hotel in Bratislava's River Park - a multi-functional complex on the Danube riverside. A lighting concept has been developed for two main facades of the new hotel building - one facing the busy main road with entrance to the hotel, and the other one facing the internal courtyard opening up to the river promenade. The animated lighting plays with subtle colour changes though time in an orthogonal grid of windows, creating mood waves that capture attention of passing traffic in an elegant manner.
