To celebrate EDC Las Vegas week 2019, Hakkasan Group will wow attendees with a new, multi-million dollar, custom light install called the Hakkasan Grid at its nightlife location at the MGM Grand.

According to a press release, the Grid was custom-built by Germany company WhiteVoid, and is the largest permanent kinetic light installation in the United States. The 30-foot sculpture is constructed from 57 3D printed triangles standing at four-feet each. The centerpiece will transform and change color with the music in real-time, thanks to pixel-mapping and color-mixing technology controlled by Hakkasan proprietary software. 

“The nightlife industry requires constant evolution and excellence, and we pride ourselves on consistently rising to this challenge and providing our guests with unforgettable, transformative experiences,” Hakkasan Group's executive vice president of entertainment James Algate is quoted in the press release. “We’re thrilled to yet again push the boundaries of nightlife with the new Hakkasan Grid. We’re confident that guests will be blown away by this futuristic, multisensory experience we’ve created.”

EDC Las Vegas comes to life Friday to Sunday, May 17 to 19. Hakkasan is home to resident DJs Calvin Harris, Tiësto, Zedd and more. Check the official rendering of the Hakkasan Grid below.
