Akmerkez Shopping Mall - Istanbul, Turkey

Description

Originally constructed in 1993, Akmerkez is the largest shopping center in Istanbul. Seventeen years after its founding, it received a luminous facelift consisting of modern way-finding solutions and brilliant graphics. To ensure guests’ safety, each escalator received a Glassiled ceiling. Glassiled, a glass panel infused with LED, gives the illusion that points of light are suspended in glass without any visible connections. The escalator ceilings’ memorable, contemporary design consists of two lines of blue LEDs, which indicate the direction of the escalators. To reinvent the mall’s common space and create a fresh focal point, more than 1300 16PXL Board RGB were installed behind diffused glass. Positioned on – and spanning the height of – two 18-meter elevator towers in front of a waterfall at the center of Akmerkez’s atrium, the Board installation provides a bright and reliable media palette, infusing the highly trafficked area with excitement.
