Stage design for a one-off event in the desert of Morocco, organized by ISOTOOP & TIKITA. International heavyweights on the decks coupled with a clear view of the rest of the Milky Way. The concept was to emphasize the natural environment as much as possible so the least processed materials from natural origin were chosen. Triangle as the primary shape was chosen semi-accidentally from early sketches for both the stage and floor, albeit the fact that the design pointed upward to the stars was a nice coincidence. Wood was center-stage providing the contrast to silk, guarding the artists from any sand in the wind. No graphics were used to add to the environment, instead light was treated as one of the natural surrounding materials and colour combinations from the RGB colour palette were manually "played" throughout the majority of the festival, certain artists choosing specific spectrums or tonality to create a bespoke ambience to their set.
