GT Pro, Mosaic Conference
Fabric: FR Superknit, White
Sometimes when helping our clients think “outside the box” on their unique stage design, we end up building them custom drapery to help make it look like their stage is actually INSIDE of a box. We were contacted by event designers GT Pro, who were working with stage designer Chase Hall, to produce the main stage design for the Mosaic Conference–a wildly popular three-day yearly conference being held at the iconic Theatre at Ace Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles. They decided to have us help them create three sides of a crisp, white “box” that they could project engaging videos, inspirational imagery, and colorful lighting onto throughout each segment of the summit. They started by having us build them an extremely large, all-white drape with minimal vertical seams and a smooth, flat surface. Using fabulous 192″ FR Superknit substrate, we were able to construct this larger-than-life 40’h x 80’w single drape for this production design.
Next, we consulted with Chase on ways to best way to fashion the sharp corners that would really bring home the stage design’s exceptionally distinct look. He and his team ended up installing virtually invisible aircraft cable on the stage floor and the top of the truss structure, making sure it was good and taut. Once tension was applied, it created the appearance of perfectly tight corners. Measuring, inspecting, cutting, and sewing multiple panels of fabric that were 40′ high by 16′ wide is no small endeavor, and keeping it clean for the entire production process was quite an impressive feat in and of itself-but as you can see the end results were absolutely incredible!
