As one of the leading event companies London we regularly design events at the National Portrait Gallery around their iconic exhibitions. David Bailey personally selected and printed 250 images for this exhibition and Bailey’s Stardust was presented thematically across a series of contrasting rooms. It illustrated the extraordinary range of subjects that Bailey captured from actors, writers, musicians, filmmakers, designers, models, artists to characters encountered on his travels; many of them famous, some anonymous, all of them unforgettable.
We decided to continue the theatrics by crating a 11 metre fuschia pink PVC bar which clad the existing ticketing desk. We wanted to have flowers cascading from above the head height of the guests and so we designed and manufactured iron troughs on stilts which each held 20 kilos worth of water and flowers. A stunning event for a stunning exhibition!
