POW! Designing with Lighting

Designing with Lighting

“If you want drama and the ‘wow,’ it’s lighting every time.” We have to say, we love the philosophy of event producer Rose Forbes.

Forbes, owner of Two Tree Events gets the wow, and the pow, when she works with our lighting designer Nicholas Blasi. As a collaborator with her on this corporate event, he turned up his own super power — designing with lighting.

One of Forbes’ design mantras is that the space dictates the look of her events. The Optimist Studios with its large, blank walls and floor space was then the perfect choice for a super hero theme event that changed throughout the night. Big color and patterns gave Forbes the KA-POW-er design effect she desired. Using automated fixtures that could rotate and change throughout the night, Blasi alternated Squiggle and Paisley gobos in powerful, saturated tones. “While the walls around the dance floor changed, I wanted the gobos on the dance floor and the POW gobos to remain still.”

The effect was super fun and Xciting!
