A temporary stage that appears to hover in the main atrium at the Technisches Museum Wien (Vienna Museum of Technology) transformed the venue into a magical concert event space.
Radionight is an annual promotional concert for radio broadcast, and Veech x Veech was asked to create and deliver the stage designs for three different Radionight events that took place over three years in different locations. For this stage design at the Vienna Museum of Technology, Veech x Veech was inspired by the museum’s early aeroplane exhibits, which were suspended beneath the glazed atrium roof.
The team’s response was to create a dramatic, pneumatic stage set that hovered seven metres above the floor and allowed the audience to gather around the stage at an intermediate floor level and become physically part of the proceedings.
The ground floor was not open to the public, and instead presenters and actors entered at this level and used two hydraulic platforms to access the stage, adding to the drama of the event. The stage slowly rotated, and textural lighting effects created a magical concert environment.
