The striking Khalid Bin Al Waleed metro station in Dubai
In line with impressive plans for the city's metro stations, Czech designer, Jitka Kamencová Skuhravá has stamped her signature on Dubai's Khalid Bin Al Waleed Station, situated near Burjuman Shopping Centre. An opulent water lighting sculpture beautifies the station's ceiling, and the artistic sculpture has been nicknamed as "a giant jellyfish" by regular onlookers.
The sculpture can be seen in two parts; one would the textured bent glass that makes up the base, while the second part like a waterfall phased into hand-blown hollow glass drops.
State-of-the-art technology has also been used in this model with a 150W projector that casts its glow and a stainless steel finish completes the design using LEDs and RGB-based optical fibres. Travel in style, indeed.
