Metropolitan Home Design 100 Gala

New York, NY

To celebrate Metropolitan Home’s annual “Design 100” issue, Rockwell Group’s LAB used custom software to transform the Pool Room at the Four Seasons hotel with a dynamic light and sound installation.

"Digital Confetti" transformed the event into an interactive party.

A 12-foot balloon floated above the pool displaying colorful shapes that resembled digital confetti. Special maracas—containing an accelerometer, using Bluetooth to communicate with computers, dried beans for a shaking sound, and an offset motor for vibration—were made available around the pool. Shaking one maraca stirred up the confetti, while shaking another brought text in a custom-designed font to the surface of the balloon. Each maraca also generated a different musical note, creating a harmony of sounds when shaken together.
