Archimedes got the pleasure of setting up at and supporting the wonderful LeSpaceMaker in Montreal a few weekends ago.
LeSpaceMaker is an incredible non-profit social economy enterprise that is just opening in order to facilitate space for artists and makers to create all sorts of incredible projects. Its goal is to offer a collaborative space for fabrication (making), learning, exploration, creation, exhibition and sharing of knowledge. One of its goals is to give access to specialized tools, to offer the space to use them and unite varied expertise.
They held an incredible opening fundraiser party to raise awareness and money for the new establishment they're opening. It was held in their amazing new space, a huge warehouse which will soon be filled with all manor of equipment for its members to build with.
The party was a big gathering of artists, performers, djs, vjs and great friends.
There was a good vibe, with an excellent turnout and several rooms with different types of music and performance that you could flow between.
The Archimedes dome was a brand new version that our awesome client Derek Jones commissioned for this years season.
An incredible shimmery gold, I was so excited when I first found this fabric, and super excited to see it fully in action.
Unlike our other domes which are focused on the shade stars, with this version we tried a full gold ceiling and an attached clamshell panel that surrounds the base.
It made for an incredible tent-like shimmer that surrounded everyone who entered. It also made for some pretty awesome photo ops!
The dome was in its own tiny little room, with the doorway opening directly into the dome. It created a super cozy shoes-off space that was filled with cushions and cozy things.
The functionality of this wonderful little plounge space was amazing. Full of conversations, acro-yoga, cuddling, laughter, and happy people all night long.
So happy to have supported this wonderful new establishment in the launch of this incredible space!
