Burj Khalifa takeover by Cartier video

Time Out has video and pictures of Burj Khalifa takeover by Cartier, with Dubai Opera. See a panther climb the world's tallest building


The brilliance of the LED show at Burj Khalifa isn't really news anymore - which, by the way, is a shame when you consider the sheer majesty of the hourly shows that illuminate the world's tallest building.

But for all that, every once in a while something truly spectacular takes over the 70,000-bulb display that demans some special attention.

So, with that in mind we present the eye-wateringly good Cartier performance of the previous weekend.


Operating on the tower in conjunction with the sold-out performance of Jose Carreras at the next door Dubai Opera, it features a panther climbing a theatrical curtain that turns into stardust.

The Burj Khalifa LED show is the planet's biggest visual display of its kind, spanning a total area of 32,467 sq metres on the Dubai Fountain facing side.

Speaking recently about how it was installed, Bashar Kassab, Technical Services Director, revealed more than 110 kilometres of rope access, 72 kilometres of cabling and 10,000 connectors were used.

Cartier's takeover is the first since Jaguar broke new ground when their F-Pace SUV was displayed 'driving up' the screen.
