ART DECO BACKDROP
IMMERSIVE CULT |
With a brief of “Art deco and St Tropez in the 1920s” we designed and built this Art deco backdrop for an exclusive private party in the French Riviera. The lighting behind shimmered so as to make every photo background unique. Using Art deco motifs and patterns, we aimed to capture the sun, the sea and the suave conjured up by thoughts of the great Gatsby and the glamorous french coast in the roaring 20s.
The whole backdrop came apart in pieces, and it was important that this was factored into the design, which is how we ended up with a central triptych of sun and sea, with the art deco rays of sunshine emanating from the central piece. e layered multiple levels of MDF to create the depth needed for the Art Deco look which was then finished by our set painters to give it a characterful, contrasting gold and black paint effect. Finally we used one of our 46" bevel less flatscreen video monitors to create the blue waves lighting effect and a further series of LEDs lit the sun and sunshine rays from behind so they shimmered over time.
