NIGHT FLIGHT BY MODE
Night flight is a live music club that spreads on 1000 sq.m. our design was inspired by its name. We re-created the notion of a midnight walk / flight under a starry sky. We situated the stage in the center of the pace in order to achieve 360 contact with the audience. The seating is arranged in three tiers + one balcony. We created a boudoir for the VIP tier that overlooks the main hall.
We had to unite function with esthetics. We set up the night scenery by using the binding effect of sound insolation – adding extra depth to the walls and absorbing all light reflection. The gllitering of stars was represented by a luminous web – a spherical surface that enhances the central perspective. Mirror reflections were used by reason of mutiplication and modification of the space proportions.
Our main ambition (in wich we succeeded) was to use suggestion, to manipulate the proposition in order to evoke a precisely formulated effect – fairy – tale / fabulous ambiance, complexity of perception/ comprehension. Emphasizing on detail, enriching it, following the concept to a greater depth resulted in multilayer experiece. Other than that, an essencial part of our work was to create a unique identity, a ditinguished label.
