THE NETHERLANDS – Nolet celebrates 325 years of history with 3D projection

The Dutch drinks brand recently celebrated its 325th anniversary in the distillery industry with 3D projection and interactive experiences.

noletTBA has teamed up with Projection Artworks to turn the world’s tallest windmill into a giant dynamic projected story of the life’s works for the Nolet family, the makers of premium drink brands Ketel One vodka and Nolets gin.

The event took place on Saturday 14th May at ‘The Windmill De Nolet’ in the brand’s flagship Schiedam distillery in The Netherlands, the projection was commissioned to help mark its 325th anniversary.

The projection formed the centre-piece of a weekend of celebration which entertained over 900 guests, prominent media, industry leaders and staff. The ten-minute projection-mapped animation took guests through 11 generations of craftsmanship in the science and art of distillation

From the dawn of the age of reason through to the present day, attendees were treated to a visually-rich history lesson, as seen through the eyes of the Nolet family, that encompassed  graphics, the Dutch golden age of painting, the industrial revolution, art deco, WWII, 80s Americana and contemporary cutting-edge distillation.

The projection ended in a finale of fireworks and a video edit of the show was made available for guests to share across social channels.

Lily Crum, TBA’s project lead commented: “This was a hugely important project for TBA. The nature and importance of this moment in time celebration meant that we had to do something extraordinary to mark the moment. With our creative team working closely with the very talented team at Projection Artworks, we created what even I had not dared to imagine – the most memorable 3D story of a life’s work for our client. An extraordinary show that will stand the test of time.”
