Marina Bay Sands President and Chief Executive Officer, Mr Thomas Arasi
Laservision along with a collection of celebrity chefs, leading fashion designers, luxury spa operators, musical stars and over 3,000 international VIP’s recently launched Marina Bay Sands, the leading business, leisure and entertainment destination in Asia.
Designed by world renowned architect Moshe Safdie, the 2,560 room luxury hotel is equipped with a 120,000 sqm convention and exhibition centre, designer shopping mall, restaurants, Art Science Museum, two theatres and a spectacular 340 m SkyPark suspended 200 m in the air with an observation deck set on top of the World’s largest public cantilever structure.
Laservision was engaged by the Fortune 500 company, The Las Vegas Sands Corporation, to conceive, design, produce and deploy a spectacular opening event to bring to life this iconic structure as night fell.
Laservision, well known for its son et lumiere’s worldwide, delivered the impact of Searchlights, Lasers, Architectural Lighting and Firepower to generate a high energy experience radiating across the bay.
The Convention and Exhibition Centre, Casino and Twin Theatre’s massive concave roof are illuminated with over 1,000 LED fixtures transforming the one kilometre of roofing into a vibrant live and colourful canvas. The LED fixtures give the hotel the ability to come to life at night in a wash of colours or alternatively create animated ethereal effects across the entire extent of the Integrated Resort. The use of state- of-the-art LED technology returns high energy efficiency, long life and over 1 billion colours.
The Art Science Museum affectionately referred to by the Singaporean locals as the ‘Open Palm’ was brought to life with multiple searchlight beams extending from the water oculus up into the heavens. Fifteen metre high flame effects on the finger tips were used to create further positive energy.
The highly-anticipated Sands SkyPark, which sits 60 stories high and features a 150 metre long infinity-edge swimming pool was under-lit with a dramatic animated ‘water’ gobo lighting effect to further enhance the architects dream of a ship floating in the night sky.
