The four sculptures ”The Wings“ were designed by the American architect and artist Daniel Libeskind. The sculptures with a matted aluminum finish measure 10 meters in height and weigh 15 tons. They symbolize an “Innovation Bridge“ between historically significant sites of company Siemens and the world. For the first time “The Wings” were displayed at Expo 2015 in Milan.
Integrated in the surface are thousands of LEDs, which allow graphic animation and refer to the topic of digitalization.
Today the sculptures are located at different significant Siemens sites to illustrate the enterprise’s interconnectivity: One sculpture is in front of the corporate headquarters in Munich, another at the largest site of the group in Erlangen, one in Berlin and the last one in front of the Siemens headquarters in Italy, in Milan.
echion AG accompanied the move of three sculptures to Germany and took over technical support for the wing LEDs in Munich and Berlin at this point. In addition to LED hardware, echion’s service includes the Wallwashers, which provide for a modern Wing light concept. It can be individually controlled and adapted.
The Wing content is also created by company echion: By means of a pattern the desired contents are established to fit the LED matrix and then logged in. The impressive sculptures are perfectly complemented by the fitting content and serve as an ideal platform to optically take up also special events. Furthermore, the content concept can be advanced and perfected with interactive elements.
