Grand Seiko launch at Bennelong

On 12th October 2022, Grand Seiko hosted an exclusive gala dinner for select industry watch professionals at the ‘Bennelong’ Sydney Opera House restaurant.

Illuminart supported the luxurious launch event, with visual art and animation production, and projection mapping onto the incredible vaulted ceilings of the Bennelong.

During the event the Japanese watchmaker unveiled a very special, limited edition release for Australia (Grand Seiko SBGJ269), inspired by Pink Flannel Flower (Actinotus forsythii), representing our Australian spirit of resilience. To coincide with the moment, the projection featured pink flannel flowers blooming across the ceiling.

Other moments celebrated nature and the seasons experienced in Japan, featuring cherry blossoms for spring, winter snowfall, summer greenery and glorious autumn leaf colours.

The event was managed by WM MEDIA, who brought together a team of professional suppliers to transform the Bennelong with floral arrangements, lighting, music, fine cuisine based on the four seasons, and the immersive projection by illuminart.

It was truly stunning. Such a highlight to the evening
