It’s the season to be jolly again! With Christmas approaching, 1 Utama Shopping Mall is stepping up their game with Instagram-worthy and futuristic decorations for this year’s Christmas. Throw yourself into an array of Christmas-themed activities with interactive media, art exhibitions, various entertainment programmes, as well as gift redemption!
Not Your Traditional Christmas
What do you usually think of when it comes to Christmas? The colours red and green, reindeers and sleighs, pine trees topped with multi-coloured lights and a bright star? Well, expect none of these at 1 Utama, as they are thinking out of the box and looking forward in time! At the mall’s lower ground concourse, discover holographic giant crystals in place of trees. These triangular crystals are stacked artfully to create domes, and each dome houses a different store, allowing you to get your Christmas shopping done while admiring the reflective decorations.
A Time for Reflection
1 Utama is actually Malaysia’s pioneer eco-mall, and they have taken steps to preserve our environment through various methods. The reflections made by these crystals are more than fun, they are actually a message to reflect within. The earth belongs to all of us, and as citizens of the earth, how are we taking care of it? While you ponder over this, be sure to capture plenty of pictures to gloss up your Instagram feed!
Lights, Camera, Sparkle!
Taking Christmas to a whole new dimension, 1 Utama has constructed pop-up playrooms at the Ground Floor Centre Court. An exhibition of sorts, it is actually a connected space with five different playrooms within. Each room features a different experience, ranging from tinsel foil curtains, convex mirrors, LED light displays, reflective globes, and a warped mirage vault. And playroom it may be, but it is open to all members of the public regardless of age, and admission is free! Just a word of caution, people who suffer from epilepsy might want to sit this one out. To add on to the eclectic atmosphere, the floor is printed in psychedelic black and white.
