Stage Design for the 10th Anniversary Celebration
The stage formed a platform to host the 10th Anniversary Celebration of the Jewish Museum Berlin. The former Flower Market Hall opposite to the museum, which will accommodate the new Academy of the Jewish Museum conceived by Daniel Libeskind, was chosen for the venue.
The designers positioned the stage between the audience and the construction site of Daniel Libeskinds `cubes´. By opening and framing the view to the background, the new construction became an integral part of the stage setup. The stage is like a window, opening the view to the future and at the same time looking back by projecting images from the past 10 years of exhibitions and events. A set of triangular shapes was arranged to leave the roman numeral for 10 inbetween them, marking the museum´s first decade.
The geometry was inspired by the Star of David.
