2022 FIFA World Cup logo, Doha

To infinity and beyond...

Qatar
Located on Palm Tree Island right in front of Doha, the official logo of 2022 FIFA World Cup has been the brillant "star” of the football competition and will be shining for a whole year at night as a reminder the 22nd edition of the world championship.

This three-dimensional curved structure offers a diverse visual shape and emotional impact to the viewer walking along the Doha Corniche, which makes it an absolutely unique artwork. Imposingly standing on a sand dune as if by miracle, the 26.5 m high sculpture was conceived to represent this international event through typical elements of the Arabic world and culture mixed with references to the sports event. Its soft curves recall the desert dunes while its unbroken loop portrays both the number eight – a reminder of the eight astonishing stadiums that hosted the matches – and the infinity symbol, which represents by the way the official 2D graphic layout of this world championship. Besides echoing the shape of the FIFA World Cup Trophy, this 150 tons sculpture made up of steel and fiberglass takes inspiration from the traditional woollen shawls, usually fitted with embroidered details, worn in the Arabic and Gulf regions in winter.

This asymmetric structure was meant to draw the attention of the many football supporters and city visitors at night through a seamless illumination that could enhance, in either white or coloured light, its sinuous contours with a brilliant, intense light. According to dedicated lighting calculations, 46 units of Capital 300 with either medium or wide optic in RGB+W 4000K colour configuration, were required to deliver the desired illumination level to the whole structure. The CAPITALs 300 were fixed in groups onto metal supports installed on the ground around this giant O, to light it up with the same intensity from every point of view. Owing to the proximity to the sea, the fixtures were fitted with an additional anti-saline treatment, a specific corrosion resistant coating for product installation in coastal environment which protects the fixtures prolonging their lifetime. The whole system is managed via a professional DMX control system ideal for medium to large-sized projects, which operates as an interface for the user allowing easy access and control over all available functions.
The bright, intense illumination of the 2022 World Cup symbol perfectly reflects the bold and modern image that Qatar wanted to deliver to the world on the occasion of this prestigious sports event through this and many other futuristic constructions, like the four Lusail Plaza Towers, specifically designed and built on this occasion.
