Design process for a new TV studio

There is a lot to do about innovation design en design thinking this year. So we sat down with our designer Michel Nols. We call Michel a ‘space designer’. Here, he gives you some insights on the design process for a television studio:

Michel Nols: “Avondgasten is a format that takes place right after the six o’clock news when two anchors and six guests elaborate on the latest news items in a light,  friendly and cozy setting.

123 PIANO

123 piano kitted 8 artists out with a location and a piano. Fisheye was among the fortunate ones (thanks City of Ghent, thanks Sioen). We don’t mind taking pianos apart, particularly when it helps to fight crankiness. For, that’s the objective of projects such as 123 piano: more happiness in the city. As usual, we took the thing apart and toyed both with shape and content.

Except for the fact that our piano looks a bit Knight Rider futuristic, it’s good to know that you can at the same time listen and look at the music it produces. The software we produced translates the piano sound into a color pattern. The algorithm is written in such a way that it sometimes follows the piano sound and at other times wanders off. It’s never a verbatim translation. It’s a most unusual, unique experience, both for the musician and the audience.

You’ll find the Fisheye piano in the railway station Gent Sint-Pieters.
Come along, listen and watch.

 

Tomorrowland 2014

Last year we installed 21 fantastic containers. You remember, these fairy tale ticket booths, where you could buy tokens and tickets all the way to heaven. This year we did it again but added 160 running meter of village or ‘market place’.

All of this put together in 6 weeks time. For that job we needed 4500 sq.m of tinkering space.We can assure you that it takes real skill craftsmanship to create a genuine brick impression.
