Red Bull Soundome

We were tasked with designing and building a feature arch-way and statement piece for Red Bull Soundome in Electric Picnic 2017. We wanted to construct a harmony between the dome and our pieces as well as create something impressive and engaging for festival goers.

The 10ft high archway comprised of a half-tonne of steel skeleton over which we strategically applied 48 sheets of wood to formulate an erratic and visually stimulating surface, cohesive with the overall geodesic aesthetic.

The Soundome Swing Chair was one of our more meticulous projects to date. Each of the 80 pieces of wood that make up the basket had to be individually shaped to fit into the geometric design. Using the surrounds of Electric Picnic, we hung the chair to a tree using 10 metres of reinforced chain.
