MTV Design Stage is a digital design, derived from nature, realized in lightweight fabric, using the latest digital fabrication and engineering techniques, to create more with less. Comprised of 108m3 of space is enclosed within a minimal surface area of 568m2 and uses only (568m2*0.2kg/m2=113.6kg) of lightweight material.

Works by Graphic Designer TOKO and programmer/animator Robyn Pyon we developed graphics that could projected according to each musical performance as well as creating an overall atmosphere.

Tensile Membrane Company Mak Max, the engineers and fabricators of the sculpture have developed a unique workflow from digital design to Digital Fabrication of complex shapes.
