When we were asked to turn a satellite clean room* into a temporary conference theatre for a prestigious presentation, we were intrigued. During our two site visits, we had to wear pyjama-like clothing to prevent contamination!
On the day of the presentation, we used the client’s 12 tonne moving crane to ‘fly in’ our lighting rig, projectors and screen. Rather than disguising the room’s transparent roller shutters, we decided to incorporate them into our design—together with simple lighting, we transformed the space into a striking presentation area.
*NASA’s definition of a clean room is: an environment that is used in scientific research or for building things like computer chips and satellites. It is designed to have low levels of contaminants or environmental pollutants such as aerosols (tiny airborne particles), chemical vapors, dust, and airborne microscopic organisms.
