Samsung x Spotify: Fresh Finds Live


Design + Fabrication

Creative OVerview

When Spotify approached us with their vision to create the first collaborative live experience of their Fresh Finds initiative–right here in Chicago–we knew we were about to be a part of something decidedly unique, expressive, and innovative.

In collaboration with Samsung, this two-day live event welcomed over 500 music fans to take part in immersive activations and rotating performances by emerging artists with deep connections to the city.

As their design and fabrication partner, our team worked closely with the production team at Spotify to craft and install custom set pieces, lighting, and complete scenic environments that transformed City Hall Chicago’s 5,400-square-foot space into an urban celebration of music and culture.
