For this year’s design of the HBO Golden Globes after-party,
Billy Butchkavitz was inspired by the muses of mid-century contemporary design
circa 1968 to 1973.
We love it when he gets specific like that! It challenges us to find just the right gobo projection patterns to complement the arced lines of the custom carpet and the graphic design on the linens.
Billy’s mandate — every surface covered in lighting
which we were only too happy to fulfill.
Textured gobo projections of various shades of white and green were custom
carpet of arced lines, trellis design and green and white color scheme. A
central sculpture was the focus of the tented area while our lighting brought
focus to perimeter walls, tabletops and entertainment areas.
To completely immerse the guests in the design, for the first time Billy asked Bart Kresa to extend the 3D video on the main exterior wall of the space farther. To paraphrase that most famous of green celebrities, Kermit the Frog, it may not be easy to be green, but it is easy – and fun – to turn an entire event space into a design that would make Kermit even greener with envy.
