Australia - NanoLumens has announced the completion of a new LED installation in the heart of Karrinyup Shopping Centre, an upscale retail venue located just outside of Perth. The installation, known as The Timepiece is suspended from a two-story ceiling above a central vertex within the shopping centre and consists of a four-sided clock sphere and a rotating double-sided pendant.
The shopping centre is managed on behalf of UniSuper by AMP Capital
“The Timepiece concept came into being during a pivotal moment for Karrinyup Shopping Centre,” said Courtney Ross, general manager - commercial for AMP, Retail. “The design intent is inspired by the transitional time of the $800m retail development of Karrinyup and aims to draw inspiration from both the classic heritage of the Centre’s core, as well as the modern retail transformation taking place around it.”
The digital installation was developed for AMP by Digital Place Solutions (DPS), an Australia-based digital place consultancy with past ties to NanoLumens. Said Gerry Thorley, the director of DPS, “This project was really about timelessness, the melding of the old and the new so that the centre could create a true sense of presence while also sparking a new contemporary vibe.”
Dynapac, another firm with prior experience working alongside NanoLumens, provided the rotator systems, while Vision Sign created the fibreglass enclosures for the clock sphere and the pendant. The on-site installation was undertaken by Perth based integrator Critical Room Solutions. Taking place alongside other large-scale development construction to the property, the Timepiece team worked through the night, so that no landlord, retailers, or customers were affected.
“The Timepiece installation at Karrinyup is one of the most elegant and captivating designs we have seen in our work,” said John Margetts, president of Dynapac. “Instead of rotating a simple double-sided LED board, the designers have created an art piece that is just as captivating as the content that will be played on the LED screens.”
The Timepiece has allowed AMP Capital and Karrinyup Shopping Centre to create a visually captivating execution located in the heart of the centre where the local community can meet and connect for years to come, as well as the ability to partner with global and local brand for advertising and see financial returns for our investors,” says Courtney Ross, general manager commercial for AMP Capital, Retail.
