Red Hot Chili Peppers / I Believe In You Tour

For the stage design of the Red Hot Chili Peppers 2011 'I Believe in You' tour, the studio took the band’s iconic octagonal logo and exploded it upwards and outwards, creating a bold and futuristic, kinetic chandelier above the stage.

This exploded icon was a versatile sculptural form, which was part lighting surface and part high definition video screen. Directly below it, a LED floor in the same octagonal shape lit the band and presented a novel video surface for the audience in the area. The design involved 10 video surfaces, 8 hanging and expanding screens, the LED floor and LED backdrop. The studio developed the overall concept, stage design (in collaboration with Tait Towers), the content, and various custom code for the tour.
