A gorgeous night in Los Angeles with an event designed to get people to look up, look down, look all around! The annual LA Philharmonic Gala is held at the Walt Disney Concert Hall with cocktails inside and dinner in a tented space off the world-class venue. This year, neon lighting sculptures from Nights of Neon were used in conjunction with traditional lighting from our lighting team. Led by our lighting designer Lonnie Thompson, the look featured lighting textures layered over the space — on the floors, tables and perimeter.
The entire look was about seeing what is there, and what isn’t there. A tent that wasn’t there so the skyline of Los Angeles came into view, chairs that one could see through and neon sculpture inspired by the sound of music. Speaking of vision, it’s 20-20 in hindsight so let’s go back and show you how we got here!
The final product!
