Interactive Christmas Lights, 2005

Chamber of Commerce, Vienna

POLKA’s design for a system of interactive LED snowflakes was awarded first prize in the ‚Light Up’ competition organised by the Vienna Chamber of Commerce. Text messages could be sent by members of the public to a dedicated number, to make the snow flakes brighten and dim intermittently. Using the perspective of the short street in Vienna’s city center POLKA was able to make it snow every single day. In addition, for every text message that was sent, one euro was donated to a local childrens’ charity.
