«Polygon Sofiyivka» stands as a testament to the seamless fusion of nature’s beauty with contemporary artistry. This structure, constructed from durable stainless steel, is painted in a deep verdant green that echoes the vibrant life of the natural world. It is further protected by a robust multi-layer varnish, ensuring that its allure withstands the elements through every season.

Dominating the landscape with its 10-foot stature, this installation commands attention in any setting. As evening approaches, an integrated powerful RGB lighting system comes to life, scattering a spectrum of colors across the ground, transforming the vicinity into a dynamic canvas of light. Surrounding linear lights enhance this visual feast, their glow orchestrated in sync with music, creating a mesmerizing interplay of light and sound.

Crafted by DION, «Polygon Sofiyivka» is not merely a sculpture but an interactive gateway into an enthralling world where art, light, sound, and nature merge to produce a stunning, multisensory experience.


Designed as a grand entrance piece for a major park and entertainment complex, «Polygon Sofiyivka» incorporates more than just architectural innovaion—it also celebrates cultural heritage. Featuring a sculpted portrait of Sofia, the eponymous muse for whom the park is named, the installation honors her legacy and the park’s historical roots. This artistic endeavor aims not only to beautify and illuminate its surroundings but also to connect visitors with the rich history and heartfelt tribute embedded in its creation.
