Rio Olympics 2016 – Opening Ceremony

 

Client: Event FX Limited

Date: 2016

Location: Brazil

 

Brief

 

Working with Event FX to produce custom-made confetti launching hardware for the reveal of the green Olympic rings during the opening ceremony.

 

Technical Solution

 

Full technical drawings had to be submitted to production prior to the creation of the hardware. As fitment was in scenic pieces being constructed by a South American supplier, consideration about the flexibility of installation was needed. The final design was developed from a single folded piece of steel and was compact and stackable for easy transport. The design incorporated fitment for a power supply, wireless firing device and the confetti launching equipment.
