ANTI tour moves through six strikingly different acts. The deliberately smooth transitions inspire a sense of traveling through a stripped down and unearthly future.
Natural beige repurposed canvas cloth covered the walls and floor of the space. The taupe color palette gave way for the colors of Kanye West’s third collection to pop in contrast. Copper clothing racks and Pierre Paulin furniture pieces accented the simply thoughtful environment.
In pursuit of surreal living, we brought Miguel’s Wildheart album philosophy to life by creating Wildheart Motel. The event was an incubation test of unconventionality. A two day residency, in which Miguel’s ethos was abstracted into series of motel room installations.
For Florence and the Machine’s 2015 festival tour we wanted to create a sense of natural and organic movement. The design encompasses the movement of wind, reflections on water and the light of fire to evoke a timeless, theatrical experience. A large circle descends over the stage for Florence’s final songs. The shape begins as a glowing red sun, transforms into a crescent moon, and becomes a luminous full moon to end the show.
For his Yeezy Season 2 collection, Kanye West created a zine of his ready-to-wear line with photographer Jackie Nickerson. The second story of a parking garage in downtown Manhattan housed the oversized photographs, which sat on the floor casually. Grouped together by color and lit individually by the only lights in the building, the photos created their own glowing environments.
For Kendrick Lamar’s King Kunta Groove Sessions we wanted to create a sense of intimacy for the deliberately small tour. Honoring Kendrick’s To Pimp a Butterfly, we created an imagined pimp’s apartment, groovy, psychedelic, yet cozy.
