Location: Royal Institute of British Architects, London
Theme: The White Line

Reflecting the building’s 1930’s interiors, we created a white 3D art deco ‘line’ that welcomed guests as they arrived at the building. The ‘line’ moved through the building eventually becoming the main bar and then the Awards stage itself. The ‘line’ lit up and interacted with the movements of the guests enjoying themselves at the Awards ceremony.
