ANYTHING BUT SQUARE - FEDERATION SQUARE
Federation Square appointed Batik to transform Deakin Edge at Federation Square for the “Anything But Square Festival” launch. Leveraging on the building’s existing geometry and brand assets, Batik set about constructing an environment inspired by the structures topology. The space was reimagined to include a suspended three-dimensional art installation that captured an intricate dance of shape, light and colour. Custom designed seat covers concealed existing seating to create the illusion of a multilayered space. A stage design constructed of video panels housed the DJ supported by light installations highlighting the ‘Fracture Gallery’s' geometric lines. Batik evolved a compilation of lighting looks that pulsed in visceral synchronicity with the environment. A mirrored neon bar worked as the backdrop to the intimate lounge area, adding to the transformation that was anything but square.
