Q-Lite and Alexander kerkhof show the Kortrijk of the future in the KIOSK
Designregio Kortrijk paired designer Alexander Kerkhof with screen producer Q-Lite.
You can see the result in the KIOSK from 5 May to 7 June.
Kortrijk is a city in transition. In the years to come, many urban renewal projects will be under construction, from the student tower on the Vives campus to the historic centre around the Onze-Lieve-Vrouwekerk.
What better way to bring the future to life than with striking images, Q-Lite thought. And so they took the initiative to dress up the KIOSK on Graanmarkt with one of their latest innovations: the Talking Windows.
The Talking Windows or transparent LED screens are an indoor application that are usually placed behind a window. The displays show full colour images but are still 70% translucent on the inside so that you can still see through them.
The LED screens can be customised so that you can fill entire windows. For example, Q-Lite recently delivered a 193-square-metre wall to a shopping centre in Utrecht.
This month, by the way, a large 27-square-metre LED screen was also installed along the E17 in Kortrijk, at the Snowball building where Q-Lite is also located.
As a Kortrijk-based company, we want to seize the opportunity to show our latest technologies to a local audience as well, in an approachable way. As a matter of fact, we see our Kortrijk office growing in importance now that the French market is calling.
For the decoration of the KIOSK, Q-Lite was linked by Designregio Kortrijk to Alexander Kerkhof. Alexander has been active in the audiovisual sector since 2005 with a passion for image, sound, art and heritage. He likes to work with video/film, vfx, animation, 3D, VR, AR, illustration and music. The project in the KIOSK is therefore right in his sphere of interest.
The creations of Q-Lite and Alexander Kerkhof can be admired in the kiosk on the Grote Markt from 5 May to 7 June 2022.
