As the number and variety of Dubai’s offerings as a city multiply, the opportunities that abound in the city to get truly imaginative and creative are truly amazing.

Our latest project, offered us one such window to do things differently. Dubai continues to be a designer’s playground.

Creation's creativity at Play Town
Creation’s latest project ‘Playtown’ will have children gadding about in daylight!
Man’s biggest quest in every endeavour is to imitate nature- which he holds as a benchmark of perfection.

So as lighting designers when Creation received a brief to create a perfect indoor environment that imitated outdoor lighting at Mattel Playtown it was a perfect opportunity to attempt imitating Nature at its best.

Mattel Playtown, Dubai’s latest eduplay attraction set to open soon at City Walk is a purpose built facility featuring engaging and stimulating play experiences along with live shows that will encourage imagination among children.

“Our challenge here was to provide a completely integrated solution which would enable the control of both architectural lighting as well as the specialist DMX based Light Fixtures used to effectively manage the changing needs of the different shows that would be held on stage,” says Dharmendra Patel, Managing Director, Creation.

At Playtown, Creation used two ranges of products. Pharos Controls- which acts as the master system which controls all the DMX based RGBW fixtures on the project to create multiple scenes and dynamic sequences; And Mode Lighting- which is used to control the remaining functional and architectural lights. All the scenes can be recalled using 3 touch screens (1 for each floor).

Creation supported lead interior designer ISG during the tender stage. ISG specified Pharos Controls, UK who in turn recommended Creation for the project due to our expertise in integrating Pharos Controls (DMX Control System) with Mode Lighting (Architectural Dimming System).

“We provided design support to ISG in terms of wiring, DMX looping, cable specifications etc., The entire set up is integrated via an A-V system (which permits scenes to be triggered during shows) and an Intruder Detection System (which sets off an alarm in which all the Functional/Architectural lights reach maximum brightness when an intruder is detected) .”

The end result is one in which the children will be able to engage in a fulfilling experience in an environment that does not leave them with tired eyes. More so it will offer operators effective and ease of control at every stage.
