Going “BIG” at the Design Exchange Gala 2010

To honour Canadian designer Bruce Mau, the Design Exchange chose the theme BIG for their 2010 annual gala. Enormous balloons were suspended from the ceiling and faces of BIG thinkers of history were projected across their surface.

Enormous crystals made entirely of ice (courtesy of Ice Culture) were suspended over the main bar of the Trading Room floor. Trays underneath collected the water as they slowly melted.

In the dining room, large amaryllis flowers were suspended over the centre of each table, along with hanging candlelight votives. Text from Mau’s “Incomplete Manifesto” was wrapped around the room in vinyl lettering.
