Design brief was one of the most interesting we have been involved with. We developed the final design based on initial concept designs from three designers. A few challenges we faced were, meeting expectations due to the multi sponsor input, designing & implementing the “reveal” process and logistical planning for setting up, setting down and removal of the entire set all in one day. The result was nothing short of spectacular, everything went like clockwork and gauging the applause given by the guests at each reveal, we believe we delivered & exceeded any expectations!
Constructed out of MDF, The Bar’s intricate work on the main frame was done using the CNC Machine. The main panels were held together using aluminium support ties & MDF corner bracing. All the panels were mounted onto a sub floor which gave us control over the size and position of the panels. The centre table was again constructed out of MDF and the signage was supported by timber decorative posts. The bar was decorated with AC lacquer white paint. Together with the spraying, the time taken to construct this element of the show was around 3 weeks.
The Servery carcass bar frame was constructed out of MDF with an internal skin of White MFC Board. The outside panels of the server were decorated with a themed design of Vinyl records, cassette tapes, 3.5 inch floppy discs and VHS video cassettes which were all sourced from recycled companies. The outside panels needed to be sprayed with paint specifically for plastics and metals in a white finish. The centre Display was constructed out of MDF with an array of white painted equipment arranged to compliment each side of the Servery theme and to tie in with the design and display of the 4 main operator signs. The Servery took around 2 weeks to build.
The main carcass of the stage was constructed from MDF with the fascia panels made from Sterling board and MDF. There were 4 different sheen levels of AC Paint applied to these panels as well as a difference in heights to the stage to give a very distinct appearance and texture. There were led light strips inset along the main concourse which when lit up accentuated the various sheen levels. The main concourse also had to be coated with an anti slip AC White Lacquer which also helped to give the stage another texture as well as add a Health and Safety element to the design. The stage took around 2.5 weeks to construct and spray.
