LAVA designed the ‘MTV’ installation specifically for the MTV Awards 2009. Suspended in the Sydney Convention Centre, spanning 35m to 24m, the sculpture provides an intense visual environment for the global TV show.

The installation was fast tracked (5 weeks, 3 hours to install on site) to meet open for the MTV Awards Ceremony 2009 that was televised to an audience of millions around the globe.

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.

The installation was fast tracked (5 weeks, 3 hours to install on site) to meet open for the MTV Awards Ceremony 2009 that was televised to an audience of millions around the globe.
