It’s a merry season to watch ICONSIAM light up the city with its golden touch. 

As the rollercoaster ride of 2020 slowly comes to an end, it’s time to raise our spirits and celebrate the coming of 2021 in full rhythm. After a successful celebration last year, ICONSIAM brings back their striking illumination festival on the banks of the Chao Phraya River to spruce up our holiday season.

International art installations

For the first time ever, you’ll also get to witness a world-class art installation at the festival, featuring a creative sculpture created by New York-based artist “SOFTlab.” It is entitled “Infinity Forest” and will be located on the sky terrace on the 7th floor, as a showcase that can be enjoyed through a series of mirrors. It is designed for viewers to admire the beauty of life from different angles through the ‘Droste Effect’. At night, the mirrors will display LED lights that move to the rhythm of music, too.

Featuring more art installations, Australian visual artist Amanda Parer brings his fabulous ‘Fantastic Planet’ figures to Bangkok, with “Peeping Corner” and “What’s that.” The pieces are 8 metres tall, and were inspired by the Czech/French film Fantastic Planet from 1973, which tells the story of humans living on a strange planet dominated by giant humanoid aliens. 

 

Extravagant Christmas Trees

Designed by world-renowned graphic designer Mike Perry, a selection of intricately-designed Thai and International patterns will be displayed on special Christmas trees. Coupling the themes of Thai Energy flows with Thai lotus flower motifs for “Celebration of Life” patterns, there’ll be everything from stained glass decoration to a 20-meter Thai-inspired Christmas tree at River Park. Embracing Thai contemporary culture, we can tell that ICONSIAM is going to make sure Bangkok’s festive celebration is truly one-of-a-kind.

Expect to revel in the light decorations and bright Christmas Trees from now to 30 December 2020. Whilst you enjoy gazing over the lights, don’t forget to witness the the ICONIC Multimedia Water Features and snap some pictures with their vivid background for your ‘gram.
