Project: Laureus Sports Awards Welcome Party.
Venue: Museum National d’art de Catalunya , Barcelona, Spain.
Role: Designer and Creative Producer
Laureus World Sports Awards Welcome Party for 800 VIP guests from the realms of Sport, Cinema and Music. Some of the famous people in attendance were His Majesty Juan Carlos the King of Spain, actors Terri Hatcher and Morgan Freeman , and Edwin Moses who represented the Sports interest. The Museu National is a very impressive venue and so I wanted to create an installation that would give the Laureus event a real sense of identity.
The feeling I wanted with regards to the installation was as if it had exploded from the mosaic central bar, this giant sculpture commanded the room. The sculpture takes its inspiration from the undulating forms and vibrant colours of the famous artists Antonio Gaudi and Miro. It received an Award of Excellence in the United States Industrial Fabric Association International’s 2006 Interior Projects Category.The structure was designed incorporating Transformit’s rental pieces.
