BUILT BY EVENTSCAPE, NOVEMBER 2019
Unique Characteristics & Project Challenges:
The navy blue solid surface material was 1/2”-thick laminated to 3/4”-thick fire rated plywood. As the sheet size was only 30” wide, the panels were jointed together with a combination of shop-fabricated and site-fabricated seams and color matching adhesive for an overall “seamless” appearance.
Over 45 DMX -controlled white LED fixtures were inset in the solid surface. The CNC was used to create the randomized pattern of holes for the lights. Face-mounted pucks were used for easy maintenance access and each light had a curved lens finish. These were programmed to turn on and off in sequence to create the effect of a twinkling night sky.
