  • Glug x VANS – 2015
    Glug x VANS – 2015With one **** of a line-up and probably one of the coolest venues in London - The House of Vans – we produced our largest event to date back in 2015. We had over 1000 Gluggers attending and 10 speakers presenting on the night.
  • SHARE THE STAGE
    SHARE THE STAGEThis month saw School Boy Q play 3 global shows as part of the Vans share the stage activation. A platform designed to give aspiring artits that chance to share the stage with one of their idols. In Eruope alone we recieved hundreds of artists submissions to win a place on the stage with the world-renowned hip hop artist. Our Europen winner Tay Made from just round the corner from our iconic house of Vans London venue put on an awesome show to his home crowd ahead of Schoolboy’s headline set.
  • POLYPHONIC PLAYGROUND - A GIANT MUSICAL PLAYGROUND FOR ADULTS AND KIDS
    POLYPHONIC PLAYGROUND - A GIANT MUSICAL PLAYGROUND FOR ADULTS AND KIDSUsing the archetypal elements of a playground, this interactive installation encourages adults to re-discover the experience of play. We created the Polyphonic Playground - a site specific, interactive sound and light installation. Taking the archetypal elements of a playground: swings, slides, climbing frame and combining them with advanced musical and electrical engineering, the end result is a landscape of playground activities transformed into a giant musical instrument. International Appeal: The Polyphonic Playground has proved hugely popular around the world, being shown in Miami, Milan, London, Rennes (France) and most recently New York. Both public and private sector companies have commissioned the Playground’s installation to engage their audiences in new ways. Results: Estimated online reach of over 30,000,000. Over 20,000 visitors during Milan Design Salone 2015. Record breaking visitor attendance at House of Vans London. Broad media appeal including features in TimeOut London, London Metro, Disegno, Huck and Form Magazine. Full Project: http://www.studiopsk.com/ppxwaynemcgregor.html
