Mad Mapper Workshop for Bring to Light Festival

Last night, we sponsored one of Bring to Light’s workshops involving MadMapper which is one of the leading tools for video projection mapping today. If you’re not already familiar with this up and coming technology, you should check out a few videos of the growing art-form. MadMapper is software which provides an easy-to-use interface for mapping three-dimensional points to a two-dimensional plane which allowing you to create dynamic visuals that are completely adapted to the surface on which you’re projecting. Architectural works provide an amazing canvas for this technology, which we’ve seen recently on iconic New York structures such as the Manhattan Bridge from last week’s DUMBO Arts Festival or the New Museum (pictured above).

For this workshop, we found that our Pinkometry series provides ideal surfaces to demonstrate the capabilities of projection mapping. These pieces can be easily stacked and angled, and the end-results can be stunning. We definitely look forward to seeing what possibilities lie ahead for this emerging medium. Expect to see even more dazzling light forms at the Bring to Light festival in Greenpoint, Brooklyn this Saturday starting at 6pm!

Zumba Convention in Orlando

When the Latin music workout/lifestyle phenomenon Zumba was planning to produce their 10th Anniversary Instructors Convention, they were determined to find that extra special decorative element that would not only reinforce their brand identity but would serve to add a visual excitement and extra energy to the festivities.

When Zumba producer Jonathan Perlman first met with the Pink team in Orlando in March, he knew instantly that he had found the right decorative design company – everyone shared the same fun vibe and artistic sensibility. This was made especially clear when Pink presented its initial design proposals to the delight of Zumba’s creative team. Clearly, a synergy was formed and a creative relationship was born – one that promises an exiting future of collaboration.

The presence, power and extra-large scale of Pink’s fabric structures along with the integration of Zumba’s colors into unique designs made these two companies a perfect match.

An unexpected challenge was the rigging limitations imposed by the Peabody Hotel, Orlando. Having recently opened a new wing to accommodate such massive conventions like Zumba, the Peabody was being particularly protective, perhaps rightly so, of their huge scale ballroom area. Pink designs became a perfect solution for the cavernous grand foyer – serving as visual landmarks – which featured a series of modified Moss Event Arches – 30’ wide x 20’high with specially modified Pink signature Turning Birds. Together, these elements delineated the main thoroughfare and afforded a visual excitement to an otherwise uninvolved space where the wildly enthusiastic 6500 attendees passed through.

The highly caffeinated event turned out to be a huge success with thousands of Zumba fanatics buying millions of dollars of merchandise in a frenzied atmosphere all bolstered by the extra added visual excitement of Pink products. The client was thrilled.

Gravity Free Conference

Last month we were in San Francisco for the annual Gravity Free conference, which brings together designers from all different disciplines to share their many success stories. Aside from getting a chance to meet other designers, we also provided décor for several different areas throughout the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts.

It was hard not to notice our Oblique Tunnel marking the entrance of the building upon entry. These jagged structures provided a 10’ wide walkway for attendees to pass through with an oversized mirror capping it off to create the illusion of continuation. You can read more about the Oblique Tunnels here.

The Oblique Tunnel was no the only new product introduced at Gravity Free, we also saw the first appearance of our Ghosts. 9 of these fabric structures were positioned in the Forum hovering over the round-tables used for discussions after the lectures. The Ghosts consist of a 15’ wide by 20’ tall roll of sheer fabric with wiring along the edges so they can be carefully manipulated into different forms. Multi-colored spotlights helped highlight the movement in the fabric creating a dynamic ceiling treatment for this space.

We were also responsible for some of the signage elements within the Yerba Buena Center. The theme for this years conference was “the Wonders of Magical Thinkers,” and we helped reinforce this by producing fabric banners that took after mid-century magic posters. This included a large (16’ x 10’) banner on the building façade, as well as a series of 11 banners, loosely strung together with twine, displaying information about all of the speakers at the conference.

We were very happy to be a part of this multi-disciplinary conference, and a special thanks to Group Delphi for bringing everybody together in the making of Gravity Free. Browse some photos below and inquire within about any of the fabric structures that you see here!

Pink Exhibit @ California Academy of Sciences

If you find yourself in San Franciscothis summer, be sure to check out the California Academy of Sciences. Inside, it’ll be hard to miss our structures which are being used in the Forum to create help create the setting for “Snakes & Lizards: The Summer of Slither,” on display from May through September.

For this exhibit, the museum wanted to create a tunnel that contained several outposts where educational displays can stand as well as a larger projection surface to cap it off. We used a series of modified products off of our rental line to accomplish this – first you enter through a Stargate which is connected to a customized Mod Tunnel that finally opens up to one of our Coves. All of these items are in green fabric creating the illusion of being in the belly of a snake. On the other side of the Forum, you can find a green Continental Divide serving as the backdrop for a large fountain display.

Pink is proud to have all of our green structures occupy the greenest museum in the world; which was just opened 2 years ago and was designed by renowned architect, Renzo Piano. The $500 million dollar building contains an aquarium, planetarium, 4-story rainforest, natural history museum, as well as a 2.5 acre “living roof” and has received Platinum certification under the LEED program recognizing sustainability in design. The museum also happens to have a lovely seat in the middle of Golden Gate Park, which is a must-see the next time you’re visiting the City by the Bay!

Oxygen Upfront Event @ Gotham Hall

On April 4th, Gotham Hall hosted Oxygen’s Upfront event in which the rapidly growing woman’s network showcased several of its current and upcoming shows. We were called upon by Steven Yuhasz to help contribute to this annual event.

To create a reveal for the main event space, we modified a version of our Flexi Tunnel to the curvature of the building, which would direct the flow of traffic into the festivities. A Flexi Arch was paired with the tunnel to elongate the form as well. We also had a custom Circle Surround that also curved along with the building and stepped down from 14’ to 8’ in height. These surrounds flanked the stage on both side and served as a backdrop for the celebrities who graced the stage such as Paris Hilton, and the cast of Glee.

We also had 6 brand new Quarter Round Tables built for this event that were used for serving drinks and placed throughout the venue as a lightweight and portable bar. You can now see some of them on display in our SoHo Showroom and Design Studio .
