Lux Helsinki 2020 – more diverse than ever

Lux Helsinki 2020 – more diverse than ever

The official route of the Lux Helsinki light festival stretches from Senate Square through Kaisaniemi Park to the beautiful Tokoinranta shoreline. The route comprises nine installations. This year, the light festival will feature six satellite installations and groups of installations outside the city centre. These satellite installations will extend Lux Helsinki even further, including East Helsinki for the first time.

“Promoting urban culture is close to our heart and light art is a fantastic way to bring buildings to life in the darkest time of the year”, says Pekka Metsi, the CEO of Granlund.

The collaboration aims to emphasize the importance of light art in the built environment. 2020 kicks off Granlund’s 60th year with their lighting design department celebrating its 20th year in action.

“The route mixes the built urban environment with parks and shorelines. One of the great things about Lux Helsinki is how the festival can spread out quite freely in the urban environment, highlighting places that are less familiar. Arctic Helsinki is just as big a star in Lux Helsinki as the light art,” says Lux Helsinki curator Ilkka Paloniemi who is also Granlund’s leading expert on presentation technology.

Granlund’s title work this year – Large Fire Tornado by Dutch artist Ivo Schoofs takes viewers at the Kaisaniemi field to the mother of light – fire. This kinetic fire installation creates a rapidly rotating flame that reaches a height of 16 metres.
