The Kaleidoscope was inspired the natural stratification of Saudi Arabia and takes visitors on a journey from the bottom of the sea to the sky and stars above the Arabian Peninsula. In addition to the natural world of Saudi Arabia, sustainability and efficiency were at the core of this design.
At 40m long, 6m high and 3m wide, the kaleidoscope is the world’s largest of its kind, designed with seamless and warp-less mirrors to achieve an ever-expanding environment.
The main challenge was to achieve a 40m long seamless and warp-less mirror, which was achieved by using a showtex mirror foil product. Additionally, another challenge was to create an entry exit design that did not disrupt the seamless content reflected within the Kaleidoscope. This was achieved by the two triangular entry and exit portals at either end.
