Rise Nation, a series of boutique climbing gyms rapidly gaining fame for their high-intensity, uplifting group workouts, wanted to up the ante even more. What environment could capture this feeling of unbridled energy and provide that little extra dose of energy?
Unifying space, sound and motion, we designed a series of dynamic sculptural ceiling installations that create immersive, ever-changing environments imbued with energy. We started with the idea of actual mountain climbing environments, aiming to replicate the feeling of mind-wandering freedom that the great outdoors provides. Expansive, rythmic patterns, and constantly-changing scenery are the constants. The overall effect is one of technological thrill mixed with a trance-like nightclub energy unmatched anywhere.
