“The World Largest Timepiece” lighting system is on Bahnhofstrasse in Zurich.
It was a winner of a design competition organized two years ago.
The lighting system consists of 275 tubes, each 7 meters long; they float
suspended in the middle of a shopping street. A custom-made ‘Xmas Generator’
software system controls the dynamic lighting effects; this changes the
lighting depending on visitor frequency and holiday events. At the beginning
of the Advent season, light, resembling drifting clouds is used, for New Year’s Eve,
the light mimics a fireworks display. More information can be found on
the two web sites below.
