New Year light architecture of the Kazan Kremlin
VDS has implemented New Year lighting architectures on a turnkey basis for complex holiday decoration of the Kazan Kremlin. The project provided for four lighting installations, including one gallery installation, and five illuminated national symbols of Kazan and Tatarstan. It took the VDS team 10 weeks to bring the New Year project into life, from the first draft to assembly commissioning.
The holiday illumination was lit up on December 15, 2019.
The original ornament embodies expressive graphic images of the cultures of two nationalities – Russian and Tatarian. Design, architecture and color scheme of the illumination serve the same idea.
Top officials of Tatarstan contributed to the final decision on exterior lighting design of the Kazan Kremlin, which is the official residence of the President and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Programmable RGB blocks
VDS designers have developed innovative bulbs for light dissipation for holiday design of the Kremlin. A large light dome with a diameter of 40 mm was developed; the cross-section area was increased, and the specific brightness of the bulb was reduced.
Holiday or Background (Basic) Illumination
Further experiments resulted in development of a system in which the color is set by programming using RGB LEDs. This system makes it possible to set colors of the bulb within the entire visible range.
It is possible to switch off up to 70% of bulbs without changing the structure and decorations in order to create mood for every day; on weekends and holidays, the illumination is fully switched on. In addition, the pattern and color can be changed for a specific holiday or season without changing the structural basis.
All elements, structures, parts, lighting equipment (with the exception of one type of bulbs) are own patented developments and products of VDS
In addition to frames and lighting architecture, VDS team has developed and implemented a modern architectural solution for foundations within the framework of the project, increasing the assembly speed.
