MPA is the Music Production Academy of Rotterdam. We developed some solutions and brought back to life a space with many potentials. “MPA consists of a young team of ambitious producers, professional musicians, and innovative entrepreneurs” that needed an environment that better suit the mood and energy generated everyday in this space.

With a budget close to zero, we customized/redesigned elements to include in the space and played with lights and RGB in order to make it more luminous, digital, and colorful.

The first striking element is the big perspective logo of MPA. Inspired by the art installations of the Swiss artist Felice Varini, the logo is visible just from a point of view. Walking from the entrance towards the other areas of the main room, the logo changes and become a sort of dynamic illustration.

The high ceilings and the poor quantity of light gave us the opportunity to design NoCube lamp, constituted by two skeleton cubes, one inside the other, that protect a ice cube like light source. The light colors can be customized thanks to the RGB bulb.

Finally, we designed what we call “Line Lights”, a series of lines built in LED that go towards the three classes downstairs and tell to the students if the rooms are free or busy depending on the color used.
