Nokiarigged every inch of Flat Iron Square in Southwark, using specially developed software, to come alive in sequence to a deadmau5 set. People arriving in the square saw just a normal London street, and as the music started the technology allowed in to be 'played' like a musical instrument.

Adam Johnson, Head of Consumer Marketing (UK & Ireland) at Nokia said: "We wanted to do somethingas innovative as our productsto celebrate the launch of the new Nokia Lumia range. The show took its inspiration from the vibrant colours of the range. The Nokia Lumia 920 has extraordinary low lightcapabilitiesandwe wantedto create an event that would showcase thisfantastic feature and still show that our products stand out from the current sea offaceless black handsets".
