PROMOTECH ILLUMINATES "NEPTUNE IN THE WIND" DESIGNED BY OLIVIERO RAINALDI SPONSORED BY MASERATI

​Designed by the artist Oliviero Rainaldi and sponsored by Maserati, “Neptune in the wind” is a carved backlit marble artwork made out of salt white marble from Vietnam.

The piece of art has been backlit by using our one single custom made led panel, one of the biggest LED panel in the world integrated with a carved marble slab.  

The project manager Andrea Tognocchi says; “The big challenge for the creation of this artwork was to make the huge bass-relief “Neptune in the wind” in backlit marble of about a ton weight with its satin steel frame included. It has been laminated on 10+10mm glass slabs, and its total measure is of 2470x1870mm and with a thickness from 4mm to 38mm”.

“Neptune in the wind” will be shown at MOCA of Shanghai (Museum of Contemporary Art) from April 10th, 2015. Later this spring, the artwork should go to Tokyo (Japan) and then in Seoul (South Korea) and perhaps to New York also - but places are yet to be confirmed.

At the end of his trip, will return to Italy at the headquarters of Maserati in Modena.

THE FIRST "SONIC GARDEN” INSTALLATION IN ASIA AT THE NEWLY OPENED SAV HOTEL IN HONG KONG

Promotech, a key player and consultant for the installation of the invisible immersive sound and integrated lighting system at this colour based Hotel in Hong Kong. Every week has a new colour which then is associated with a particular food and different music.
 
The reception, restaurant, terrace lounge bar, the main lounge bar, elevators and suites have been integrated with RGBs giving a trendy and welcoming atmosphere showing the best that the Hotel can offer its clientele.
 
We are also proud to introduce our special sensing experience at SAV which passes through the sound experience design; a wide and surrounding sound space immerses clients in sound as soon as they reach the lobby.

With the same approach we've designed the Bar: thanks to a well-defined and never intrusive sound dispersion, people can enjoy a fully immersive soundscape in the SAV Bar, ranging low level background music situations to clubbing SPL, without letting the glass windows or the hard floors impeding sound clarity and powerful sound impressions.

On the roof terrace the “Sonic Garden” proposal aims at the creation of diffused, continuous and immersive music soundscape in the entire Garden area, starting from the art gallery space, up to the  garden area. At the same time, the two areas have strong differences: the Sonic Garden featuring an excellent sonic climate capable of high SPL, without easily encountering the risk of high disturbance for surrounding residential neighbours - till a certain extent and under local authority guide lines; the Gallery then, where due to a special in-ceiling omnidirectional sound system, higher SPL can be reached without any significant sound pollution implication.

 

We are proud to receive all this positive feed-back from the Hotels’ prestigious clientele.
