Christmas Display Solutions undertakes an array of projects, view our case studies here . . .
Launceston City Council via City Prom
To design and install a new decoration theme for a 10m Christmas tree that substantially enhances the day and night time impact of the decorations.
The design consideration for this project were challenging:
- Large Christmas trees consume a huge number of decorations to achieve a reasonable level of decorative cover
- Large trees demand larger UV decorations which are often expensive
- The traditional style of decorating with large baubles lacks night time impact
- External decorating options that can withstand high summer UV rays and harsh conditions in the southern hemisphere are extremely limited and either inhibits designs or require high annual replacement costs
Christmas Display Solutions innovated a customized solution with the German made Masson range of products – a highly flexible and incredibly durable open weave fiberglass. The Masson range painted in bright colours would lose impact against the dark green tree, however with added holographic film to reflect a full colour spectrum in the shape of the star, gave it a great day time presence.
To give these same decorations a great night time impact they were mounted with IP65 rated RGB (colour changing) strip lighting. The lighting would reflect off the holographic backing in any colour and with all 40 stars networked with a programmed lighting routine, it created an amazing night time show.
The end result has been an appropriately scaled decorative treatment that has resolved both the daytime and nighttime challenges, providing a durable and long lasting solution. This solution was a world first and has been internationally recognised.
Vicinity – Eastlands Shopping Centre
Develop a major exhibit for the large atrium space in the shopping centre.
After reviewing the centre’s existing decorations, the brand positioning and target demographic, it was concluded that a unique concept appealing to children and their families would be ideal.
The concept developed was completely bespoke solution featuring a giant waving Santa with his Elves distributing presents from the baskets of their ‘hot-air’ balloon.
It proved to be a wonderful, unique draw card for children of all ages and a great talking point for visitors to the centre. Becoming a destination at this busy time of the year encouraged more visitors which resulted in happy vendors in the shopping centre.
Dexus Group – Gateway Building Sydney
To design a contemporary Christmas display for the foyer of this landmark property in keeping with the contemporary design of the building.
A grouping of stylised Christmas trees and large baubles where their diagonal weave of fibreglass strands mimic the diagonal and geometric designs in the walls and glass panelling. The dark natural tones and surfaces in the Gateway building, combined with highly reflective surfaces, made an ideal background to feature bright white LED lighting within the product.
To create a large Santa House that would accommodate a Santa Set big enough for Santa, Mrs Claus, several elves, children and their families.
The design considerations of this project were complex, with the Santa House needing to be:
- Weather tight for storms
- Secured at the end of each day
- A free-standing structure without attachment to existing building on a sloping site,
- Built-in modular form for easy transportation, assembly, disassembly, and storage in a 20ft container,
- Structurally sound, passing the required engineering certifications for a temporary structure
- Able to house two animated Christmas windows
The design challenges were met and the Santa house project was managed to budget with the final structure achieving engineering certification to Australian Standards.
At the unveiling of the Santa House on its first night, over 4000 people attended with families and children delighted by the immersive Santa experience.
