Shopping malls are a bit of a love-them-or-hate-them prospect. Die-hard shoppers love the wide variety of stores on offer; the less enthusiastic shopper, meanwhile, often visits them only out of absolute necessity.
The recent unveiling of the largest luminous textile installation in the world at the Centrum Galerie in Dresden makes the experience of shopping just that bit more fun.
The huge textile panels greet shoppers as they enter the mall and also provide a dynamic backdrop while refueling in the restaurant area.
The connected nature of the lights means that the images can be updated at the swipe of a finger on a tablet or smartphone device, adjusting to suit an event or create a particular mood.
Meanwhile, the alternating, eclectic light animations produced by luminous textiles means there’s some entertainment for even the most reluctant shopper.
