SS BISKT TREE HOUSE FOR THE DO LAB STAGE AT COACHELLA 2016
Coachella, CA // Music Festival Tree House Stage Installation // 2016
For the Coachella Valley Music Festival near Palm Springs, CA, Hunter Leggitt Studio was invited back by The Do LaB of Los Angeles to design and build a new and improved (and larger) tree house / Front of House for the stage production.
Inspired by the main stage's design, named the 'Big Fish' from it's whale-like skeletal form, HLS created the new SS Biskt to represent the fabled ship sailing into the belly of the beast.
The tree house / boat held the stage's sound and lighting technicians, photographers, and served as the best seats in the packed house.
We brought out a special guest artist collaborator, Hans Walor, to design the ship's pirate flag. Stoked on the outcome! Thank you Hans!
