For the Innovationen 2012 event, hosted by the austrian newspaper Der Kurier we were asked by Büro Wien to create an impressive media setup. The location of choice, the Hofstallung at the MuseumsQuartier in Vienna, imposed some limitations on our stage design. The room is very long and narrow and the low ceiling interfered with our plans to suspend projection screens and projectors. On top of that the immense ornamental painting had to be carefully considered in our visual language to give the event a balanced overall impression.
To use red as the main color was an obvious choice. The position and shape of the projection screen was a little harder to figure out. In the end we came up with the solution to mirror the curved design of the ceiling with a curved projection screen. With some tricks it was possible to suspend the screen in the air without any obvious columns.
To meet the high standard of the stage design we developed a versatile presentation system that was capable of rendering video and animated live visuals to one perfect overall picture. After the official agenda went by a DJane took the stage and the projection was transformed into party visuals.
