R. Murray Shaffer's Apocalypsis Luminato

We worked with the Luminato Festival team to build the set for the 2nd only performance of R. Murray Schaffer's Apocalypsis. The minimalist set was comprised of a covered pool on stage and a rolling 'glass' box. The final effects were visually striking and help bring this epic opera to life.

Holt Renfrew Square One Nail Bar

HR Nail Polish Bottle

We had the pleasure of parterning again with our long time client Holt Renfrew to produce massive oversized nail polish bottles for the grand opening of their newest store in Square One. Each piece was hand carved from styrofoam and finished in Holt Renfrew's glossy trademark magenta. Thia unit was over 7' tall by 4' wide and was showcased in their main atrium. When a client calls with a seemingly impossible request, we find a way to make it happen!
