Grévin Seoul Museum immersed in Clay Paky
KOREA: A ‘sophisticated’ lighting system has been installed at Grévin Seoul Museum in Korea, based around Clay Paky’s A.leda B-Eye K10 fixtures. Korean distributor Tongsuh Technology Co supplied and installed 19 fixtures into the museum’s Hall of Fame room.
Located near one of the city’s busiest shopping districts, Myeong-dong, Grévin Seoul opened in July this year. It offers visitors the chance to take selfies with 80 life-size wax models of world-renowned public figures and celebrities. The exhibit is spread over four floors in different themed rooms.
Lighting designer Jean-Francois De Lamotte of design house Concept Lumiere provided the creative design for the fixtures, applying the B-Eyes' 19 individually controllable LEDs to create ‘beat-perfect dynamic effects that match the hall’s soundtrack and theme’. The fixtures also wash the space with vibrant colour to provide an immersive atmosphere.
The Grévin Museum opened in Paris in 1882. In 2013 it reached its 130-year anniversary and began expanding globally with venues in Montreal, Canada and Prague, Czech Republic. Collectively, the Grévin museums display over 2000 waxwork models and receive six million visitors annually.
