““LNK Industries” JSC presents a spatial object “Join the Holiday Spirit!” to Riga and all its citizens within the “Christmas Tree Trail” project. “Join the Holiday Spirit!” consists of a Christmas tree and alley decoration on Brivibas Boulevard. A decorated tree and alley together create a united visual image – spatial object ensemble. The Christmas tree structurally consists of four parts symbolising four seasons. Main shape creates a cone of the tree while the base – a circle – a full-year cycle. The viewers will have an opportunity to not only observe it, but also to step into it, symbolically stepping into the holiday and becoming its participant and creator,” tells the artist of the object Visvaldis Asaris.  

The structure of the Christmas tree was assembled in cooperation with “Latvijas Tilti” JSC. Technical execution of decoration and illumination was developed and conducted by “LNK Industries” JSC in cooperation with their lighting solutions partner “ArkiLED” LLC. The Christmas tree is decorated with 6000 light bulbs, but a 300 meters long alley with 1100 light bulbs that were manufactured in Latvia. Furthermore, decorative string on the Christmas tree is 1 kilometre long. The full magnificence of the project will be visible during the evening. Light bars will change colours of the alley. “TTS” LLC (Transportation Technology Systems), which is a part of “LNK Industries” group, developed a technical project and manufactured a metal structure of the main element of the spatial object – a decorated tree.

Spatial object “Join the Holiday Spirit!” was awarded during the project selection competition of “Christmas Tree Trail” festival, organised by Riga City Council’s Education, Culture and Sports Department.
