I believe many of you knew with the quote from Sir Richard Branson: If somebody offers you an amazing opportunity but you are not sure you can do it, say yes – then learn how to do it later! Somehow this quote is very encouraged people that worry about the related future or someone who afraid to leave the comfort zone. But since the future is something that we cannot predict, there is only one way related to the opportunity; just take it or just leave it. There is no try in between. Do or Do not, there is no try (Master Yoda).
I am honored and excited. Those were the feeling when I saw there are so many amazing photographs and videos on social media displaying the project that I have involved with and our solutions take the important role and become the reason why they take a photo or video.

I am talking about the result of the renovation of Gelora Bung Karno Main Stadium in Jakarta, Indonesia.
The brief from the owner was clear: “AEON Mall wants to create Wonder Garden with the dynamic illumination carpet as the element of the garden at this shopping mall”.

Since it contains many dots lamp so it will look like carpet located above the grass.
20 year is a special number, especially for a company anniversary. And it also happened to Philips Color Kinetics.
