Kuwait City, 2012

The design of the 2012 edition of the Hala Layali Febrayer festival, one of the biggest musical events in the Gulf, was based on a combination of the richness of the oriental culture and the minimalism of geometrical shapes.

LED panels and cutting edge lighting equipment were suspended over the stage in staggered rows, creating a structure of geometrical relief giving the audience an impression of “full” and “empty” triangular shapes. The multi platform stage allowed the artists to position themselves at different levels. The stage was filled by a network of LED flex strips and was equipped with media tubes, in a pattern that reproduced the triangular shapes of on the ceiling.
