We were asked to engineer and build this hydraulic platform stage for Ellie Goulding’s Live MTV EMA performance in Milan. The diamond crystals were custom made steel frames with inset mirrored aluminium composite panels. These were mounted on a custom circular hinged base with hydraulic rams to enable them to gradually open and reveal Ellie singing in the centre. The whole set was transported to Italy and assembled outside prior to installation on stage. The performance isavailable to see here: http://www.mtvema.com/es/video-playlists/p71pr5/ema-2015/6jigu1 or you can see a film from the testing stage at our workshop here: https://youtu.be/W2PWjZWcmU8
