South Coast Plaza
South Coast Plaza is a regional shopping mall located in Costa Mesa, California. It is recognized internationally for its collection of designer retailers, including Louis Vuitton, Balenciaga, and Oscar de la Renta. Dekra-Lite has been South Coast Plaza's holiday decor partner for years, and every season, we help transform the property into a festive wonderland.
South Coast Plaza is a must-see holiday destination on the West Coast. To uphold their reputation, they wanted to introduce a new and exciting holiday program.
Design & Concepting
Working with the crown jewel of designer shopping, our team wanted to create a holiday program that enhanced the property’s luxurious theme. The ‘Celestial Program’ was inspired by both the elegant jewelry and the high-end stores showcased within the mall.
Research and Development
Designing a spectacular holiday program is challenging, but making it a reality is an entirely different project. Transforming our art renderings to 3D models, working closely with engineers, and analyzing materials and lighting, our production and design team worked tirelessly to ensure the ‘Celestial Program’ visions came to life.
The process from concept to creation took nearly two years to produce. Each element in the program was crafted with industrial steel, then coated with a gold glitter paint finish, and a gold glitter injected mesh. Twinkling warm white LED mini lights and reflective gold flitters in two different sizes were added to each piece to add depth and movement. Our team finished the look by filling each of the star points with eye-catching signature ornamentation in gold and silver hues.
The ‘Celestial Program’ took our teams about two weeks to install.
The result was an exquisite holiday program, just how the South Coast Plaza team and the Dekra-Lite team envisioned. When shoppers arrive, they are delighted by the grand entrance and ready for an unforgettable luxury holiday experience.
