The mission

A royal spectacle for shoppers

The King Power shopping centre lives up to its slogan "King of Duty Free" – it's the market leader of this segment in Thailand. It's a well-known name in the country: Spread over several locations, the company operates shopping centres covering 4.8 hectares and 12,000 square metres of sales space, generating sales of 2.14 billion USD (in 2017, the year the project took place). One of the most famous locations is the King Power shopping centre in the heart of Bangkok. The operators wanted to create a spectacular splash deck fountain on the forecourt of the shopping centre to captivate discerning shoppers from all over the world. 

Shows to put you in the mood for shopping

The King Power shopping centre is a central hub for both locals and tourists. From beauty to fashion, from consumer electronics to souvenirs: Many national and international brands operate their flagship stores at this location. The experience of shopping at King Power should leave a lasting impression – right from the very start. That's why the operators decided to install an impressive splash deck fountain on the forecourt of the shopping centre, welcoming visitors with a sophisticated array of light and music shows – and the job of implementing this vision was given to OASE.

The installation

A unique shopping experience every time

The operators wanted to combine two impressive elements to captivate visitors: A unique, high-quality aesthetic and a variety of entertainment. The goal was to install a musical fountain system at King Power that allows for ever-changing, spectacular shows to wow the audience over and over again. The OASE solution was an installation boasting 400 pumps from the Varionaut 270 series – a debut for this product in Asia – and ProfiRing spotlights in a range of brilliant colours.

The individual fountains were arranged as a matrix, which resulted in a rather harsh appearance. However, the colourful and playful fountain effects soften the aesthetics and create an incredible spectacle, with the large splash deck matrix becoming the technological basis for an almost infinite variety of shows with water, lights and music.

The successes

Photo feed for social media 

Nothing is more important than a good first impression, which is why the musical fountain system welcomes visitors before they even enter the shopping centre. Many visitors take photos in front of the spectacular water feature and share them on social media. With ten alternating shows, the fountain looks different on every visit, so shoppers never get bored. 

Creating a lively, positive mood

With a plethora of Varionaut 270 pumps and ProfiPlane spotlights in a comprehensive range of colours, the shopping centre operators are able to provide complex, fascinating water choreographies to accompany the captivating music. The shows are especially charming after dark and ignite all of the senses – few people are able to resist watching the shows and they leave visitors in a lively, positive mood.
