We designed a high quality bespoke modular system using an aluminium spar framework, spray-painted lockable panels, built-in screens and LED lighting to ensure continuity of message and enhance presentations at smaller events and venues. Fully transportable and easily installed, this tailor-made solution is ideal for shell scheme spaces and foyers.
After an important European product launch in 2013, the challenge set was to build on the momentum within the 2014 exhibition stands.
Stationhouse made use of key 3D elements and, along with a striking space graphics, planned an open stand shaped to maximise audience attention to central presentations.
Strong emphasis was placed on lighting with over 50 LED lights embedded to replicate stars in the night sky; lightbox graphics on all sides of the stand and a comprehensive lighting rig with full programming and control from the storeroom.
The stand was remodelled for the 2015 event with full height light boxes and a complex lighting rig with a control desk installed in the storeroom.
The TTS Group upgraded their presence at the BETT Show, London Excel in 2014, moving from 35sqm in 2013 to over 120sqm.
Stationhouse were challenged to provide a strong corporate identity without losing the ability to talk to customers new and old on a one-to-one basis on every point of the stand.
Colourful raised plinths were incorporated as a dramatic 3D feature bringing smaller products into the eyeline. Record orders and catalogue take-ways, along with highly-positive staff feedback across the business spectrum were evidence of a strong stand design performance, along with the intention to return in 2015.
With the Group undergoing a major rebrand prior to the event, the BETT Show 2015 became the public launch of their new identity. We carefully worked through development stages of the 3D design to ensure the end result fully supported the branding and gave the correct backdrop from which the teams could communicate the new messaging.
We were challenged to create a focal piece to help launch a new product named 'Blu-Bot'. We devised a large 3D replica from the 4" long original model, that would attract visitors to be photographed with it. The project was a great success and the replica is used both in the foyer at head office and also at a range of other events throughout the year.
Continuing the re-brand we devised a variation of the BETT Show stand to be built at the NEC later in the year, ensuring continuity of message and recognition. New elements were included for the different visitor profile including a highly successful 'Art Bar' hands-on demonstration area.
As a key element of the European launch countdown of LEGO Education MINDSTORMS EV3 in 2013, Stationhouse devised a series of events including key contact and media briefings, one held at the Danish Embassy in Knightsbridge, London and the other at Hotel LEGOLAND in Denmark.
Unique presentation cases were designed to host the new product – each had an electronic lift to raise the product during presentations, sitting on a backlit plinth and creating a real 'wow' factor.
Each presentation case had an inbuilt screen to play either video or to control the software linked to the product and were designed to work in a range of environments.
Building on the success of the first show incorporating the new Group branding, the design for the Toy Fair in Germany had to show clear continuity, fit within a pre-booked shell scheme space and demonstrate great value-for-money. Logistically-challenging, key elements were carefully shipped directly from Excel, London to Nuremberg overnight to ensure build-up and preparations were complete 56 hours later.
Building on Stationhouse 3D concepts for the new LEGO MINDSTORMS product launch, we were challenged to product two exhibition presentations at Excel, London in 2013. The two allocated spaces were to face each other across a gallery, with one space dedicated to a 'LEGO MINDSTORMS experience'. The unique structures that defined the stand were carefully designed, scaled and built to provide LEGO Education with the dramatic and memorable backdrop required to launch a key product.
Stationhouse has built several exhibition stands for Serif over the last 5 years, representing the various developments in global and national branding. The briefs always called for clean lines and surfaces, along with creative use of both lighting and graphics - utilising the latest large scale production techniques to give our clients a competitive edge.
Stationhouse were tasked with delivering continuity of communications across the LEGO European marketplace through the design and installation of two separate exhibition stands at Didacta in Cologne. Attracting over 100,000 visitors in 2013, the trade fair project placed demands on strength of visual appeal and stand space for both prospects and employees to communicate.
An important new product launch required a sense of drama to capture the attention of show attendees - we proposed a robot with a 6m arm span that rotated back and forth. Such was the success of the design that the client chose to re-use it at several more events over the next three years.
Glass fibre custom moulded pieces were cast to form the core structure, cladding a strong frame. Two rotating plinths supported the head, arms and LEGO sensors - each built meticulously to scale.
TOLO Toys made their official debut at the 2011 Toy Fair in Olympia with a bright and highly impactful stand design. Emphasis was placed on the build quality to reflect the premium positioning of the product ranges displayed.
Stationhouse were invited to submit designs for an installation within a circular inflatable dome, designed to encourage adults of all ages to participate in a mass-build event. Our solution placed the creative build area at the centre and featured live social media streaming upon two large screens, the website and Twitter feeds.
The TTS Group required three striking exhibition solutions for Excel, London and the NEC, Birmingham, that did not reflect the confines of the available budget. Stationhouse controlled costs throughout and ensured that creativity and quality were maintained within the final execution.
