VICE DISCO PLANE

Vice Media needed to create a unique focal point for a Delta Air Lines event they were recently curating at Kinfolk in Brooklyn. Delta Launchpad was a series of workshops and performances targeting young entrepreneurs and innovators so the event had to shine. Vice Media’s Production Coordinator approached New Project to build an oversized rotating disco ball in the shape of an airplane to cast a little sparkle on the party. Although we only had two weeks to make it happen, we said, “No Problem!”

Our designers quickly drew up a few options in RHINO based on the client-provided concept sketches. The plane components were CNC’d out of foam, assembled as if a model airplane kit, painted, then covered in mirror tiles.

The plane was engineered and suspended to ensure it would rotate smoothly from the ceiling-mounted motor.

After receiving images of the nearly completed plane, our clients were obviously pleased. The Production Coordinator’s comment? “Whoa! I am blown away, it looks amazing!”

Another day, another disco.

New Project Official Housewarming

On Friday, June 9, we officially christened the shop with a fantastic open house party. It was a perfect evening and we’d like to thank all of our friends, family, clients, and colleagues for helping us inaugurate our new space. We were fortunate to have perfect weather and an auspicious strawberry moon to accompany the celebration.

Kimchi Taco Truck pulled up to the delivery entrance on 24th Street and dished out killer tacos and wings. DJ Econ dropped beats all night to set the friendly and festive vibe. And with so many former employees, neighbors, and clients in the house, it felt like a bit of a reunion. We were excited to show everyone around our new expanded shop which allowed plenty of room for the adults to connect and for the rug rats to go wild.

If you weren’t able to join us but would still like to visit the shop, please drop us a line and we’ll set it up. And be sure to watch for news of the net party. This one was so fun we’re already planning the next one!

The shop is looking good!

Custom Design- A Large Hamburger Flower

Hamburger flower.

One of our clients asked for a large flower/hamburger for an outdoor corporate event.  What?!  You’ve never seen a flower hamburger before? (Or would that be a hamburger flower?).

Here are some in-the-shop photos of our custom design.
