For the new nightclub Amber Summer, Shimmerwalls created a large sequin wall displaying their logo. The sequin wall is put up on the wall of Le Méridien Beach Plaza in the Larvotto district of Monte-Carlo. The Amber Lounge is known for being the undisputed after party of the Formula 1 races. It's where F1 teams, drivers, sponsors, royalty, VIPs and celebs find their spot away from the glare of press and media.
Amber Summer is the summer edition. This is a concept nightclub with the glamorous branded Amber experience of glitz and glamour - expressed brilliantly by their new Shimmerwall logo.
Walking down after a day at the beach, passer-bys are met by the sequin wall done in silver, black and gold sequins which reflect the purple flowers on the opposite side of the Méridien. Right beside the sea and surrounded by palms, this scenery has crowds fascinated by it's uniqueness. People are trying to get that sunset gram with the sequin logo, the vibrant colour play and unique lighting.

Earlier this year, at the 10-year anniversary of Amber Fashion which is held during the Monaco Grand Prix, Shimmerwalls collaborated with the Amber Lounge. Sequin art portraits of Formula 1 drivers Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg were put to auction for the Amber Foundation. This charity supports young adults getting back on their feet with appropriate job skills and housing. Both Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg signed the plaques of the sequin boards making the pieces even more unique!
With the busy summer season in Monaco coming up, Monaco was being dressed to the nines with the iconic glitz and glam of the Riviera – so what better way to make a new logo than with a Shimmerwall? The sequin wall is made out of 100,000 sequins in silver, gold and black. It shows constant movement, it's dynamic and changes with the sunlight and it creates the perfect welcome. Especially for those memorable nights with the backdrop of the Monaco skyline.

We have just been involved with the Amber Lounge Fashion Show which is held on the Friday before the Monaco Grand Prix every year. This event raises money for charity and this year the charity was The Amber Foundation which helps people get back onto their feet with job skills and housing support. We thought it would be fun to make up a couple of shimmerwalls of some popular racing drivers and Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg were chosen. We were very fortunate that Lewis and Nico were happy to support the charity and signed plaques for us to go on the pictures making them even more valuable! The pictures were exhibited on exhibition stands before the main auction so they could be seen by potential bidders before the main auction event in the reception area where drinks were served. The Amber Fashion Show raised lots of money for the charity with some fantastic donations for the auction lots and we were lucky enough to sit in the front row and see the Show and the great entertainment.
Both pictures are totally unique but equally stunning! They created a big wow on display before the evenings “silent auction” and allowed us to show how visually stunning sequin art can be.
It was fun to be involved in providing something totally unique and being able to contribute in some small way to the great work this charity does, and of course thanks to The Amber Lounge for looking after us so well.
