The exhibition Let's give the numbers! - A 3D journey through Fingers, Dice and Data: a fascinating interactive exhibition to discover the world of mathematics and numbers through games and stories. Figures, data, averages, errors, surveys, risk assessments: today we are called to deal more and more with the numbers and even if we can delegate these concerns to others, learning to use and understand the numbers helps us to orient ourselves in the world and take conscious decisions.

NorthernLight Design 11 August 2020

A Netherlands-based consortium of experts and high-tech companies – some of which were also involved in the development of the London Eye – is launching a unique attraction: the Spiral Tower. The world’s first climate-neutral high-rise attraction, the Spiral Tower is an architectural eye-catcher. It features integrated solar panels, vertical gardens and is crowned with an urban windmill. The Spiral Tower will become a landmark for city centres, urban developments, expo terrains and parks, offering visitors 360-degree views of their surroundings.

Effektschmiede GmbH 1 July 2020

If you're creative, interested in working in a team that is dynamic and process-oriented, where no two days are ever alike, and are able to communicate freely in English and German with clients, then send us an email with your CV and the subject line Internship to judith.mann@effektschmiede.de

Effektschmiede GmbH 1 July 2020

Summer, sweltering temperatures, sunshine, and …refreshing mist? This unlikely mixture was recently staged by the Effektschmiede on the square in front of the science centre phaeno in Wolfsburg, Germany. In intervals of half an hour, the four beds of reeds surrounded by seating areas that reach out of the minimalistic, grey square are enveloped in manmade, water-based fog – we do not rely on artificial, chemical fog. The environs are thereby turned into climatic microcosms of their own: the temperatures go down and humidity-levels rise.

Effektschmiede GmbH 1 July 2020

During November and December, the Effektschmiede joined the Trans-Siberian Orchestra's North America tour, operating two 3MTC Tesla Coils which were synchronised to the Orchestra's hard rock jingles. Night after night, the coils and the lights created stunning optics on stage.

Effektschmiede GmbH 1 July 2020

Recently we were visited by Noah Levi, together with the production crew of Jive Germany, to film the music video for his new song ‘Sonne oder Regen’. The Effektschmiede Team pulled out all the stops and took charge of lighting, set design, and the production of rain, fog and lightning effects. Noah’s music video dropped on Friday the 19th of July and today we’re sharing our very own making-of video. Noah Levi – Sonne oder Regen 
Special thanks go to Nicolas Vargas for his great help with the making-of video.

Ithra Energy Exhibit - science museum at the King Abdulaziz Centre for World Culture

The Energy Exhibit, located within the King Abdulaziz Center for World Culture (Ithra) complex, provides a hands-on, immersive experience exploring the world of petroleum - its sciences, energy and technology. The fully renovated science centre, aimed at youth ages 7-14, brings to life Saudi Aramco’s work – from exploration, drilling and production, to refining and shipping.

Hüttinger Interactive Exhibitions 24 February 2020

In February 2019 we were contracted to design, develop and fabricate interactives for Skaperhagen (Creative Garden) gallery at Vilvite Science Center in Bergen, Norway. Skaperhagen invites to take on creative challenges of invention and building using a variety of materials. Working alone or in teams, visitors envision technological solutions and create them from the different odds and ends provided. It is a place to think, experiment and above all, have fun. In Skaperhagen there is no such thing as a bad idea. The new interactive exhibits are on show since June 2019.
