Projects: ezppl/Design Council
The Design Council, UK commissioned interior design team Casson Mann to produce an installation for Grand Central Station in New York for an exhibition entitled 'Great Expectations'. Casson Mann designed an enormous fractured ribbon table structure which was used as a surface to showcase innovative UK objects of design. As part of this exhibition there was also a concurrent smaller structure on display at a large public conference in Birmingham, UK.
The design of this structure incorporated an interactive display and joystick. 2-UP (Anthony Pearson) were commissioned to produce an interactive, browsable realtime 3D version of the exhibition. ezppl worked in partnership with 2-UP to create a genuine virtual copy of the exhibition using openGL technology. Users could move around a view of the ribbon and move in to inspect objects before being delivered further information, including audio and video.
The exhibition went on win many design awards.
