Until Atelier One developed this collapsible Spaceframe LED support system, the supporting structures for touring productions’ LED screen panels remained unchanged for a long time. The revolutionary use of carbon fibre reinforced plastics reduced weight by 35% and truck loading volume by 40% - much reducing the transportation carbon footprint.

Judge's comment:

This reimagined support structure for LED screen panels keeps construction innovation in lockstep with rapid technological advance. The judges were impressed with the clever thinking that resulted in a support structure that creatively uses carbon fibre reinforced plastic to substantially improve collapsibility and pack size as well as speed of assembly and disassembly. Add to that its adaptability to vertical and horizontal positioning as well as convex and concave surfaces and you have leading edge structural design on the big stage.
