THEME 30 Years of WOW, Reflective Surfaces
VENUE TSB Arena, Wellington
To create an immersive experience for the visitors to WOW with a WOW factor.
This exterior and interior space needed to hold over 3000 visitors a night and reflect the celebration of 30 years and the theme.
The journey through three defined experiences and spaces was achieved using mirrors in three distinct ways. The first exterior space, based around the central diamond, created a meeting space cocooned in light and space, sound and texture. The second space, just inside the doors – the pyramid walkway, was bathed in blue light and created splintered reflections off the walls and pyramid structures representing movement in an intimate space. The final experience was dominated by three giant chandeliers looming over the staircase sending shards and reflections over all the walls – the expanse of light and spotted light opened the mind to release.
