We were asked to contribute to Blackberry's stand at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

Our elements consisted of a large fabric ceiling manufactured from a laminated white faced black-out fabric to mask out the exhibition hall's own lighting system, thus allowing the light on the entire stand to be controlled. Installed via an aluminium extrusion fixed to a grid framework,  the fabric panels slid into each bay and were tensioned lengthways, fixed behind facia panels at each end. Circular apertures were also part of these ceilings and were stitched into place during loft production.

Also produced were a number of fabric skins to the 4.5m/4m long propeller-like blades. These were printed using dye-sublimation onto a slightly stretch print sub straight.
