“This stage design highlights how inflatables and projection can be used to create a truly unique and captivating environment. The design’s minimalistic approach allows the inflatables to take center stage, creating a bold and dynamic backdrop for the performer and audience alike…
Using carefully crafted projections and lighting effects, we were able to create a sense of movement and fluidity within the inflatable shapes, giving the entire space an ethereal and dreamlike quality.” – Travis Shirley, Lighting/Production Designer
Inflatable Design Group created a custom inflatable projection wall used as a stage set for Omar Apollo while he opened for SZA’s 2023 North America concert tour titleInflatable Design Group created a custom inflatable projection wall used as a stage set for Omar Apollo while he opened for SZA’s 2023 North America concert tour titled SOS.
Omar Apollo is an American R&B singer and songwriter. He received a Grammy nomination for ‘best new artist’ in 2023. In early 2023 he also opened up for SZA’s concert tour titled SOS. The tour traveled to 17 cities located in both the United States and Canada. During the tour, Omar Apollo performed in front of a huge custom inflatable projection wall that was manufactured and designed by Inflatable Design Group.
The custom inflatable projection wall used in Omar Apollo’s set was 28 feet high by 40 feet wide and 2 feet deep. The front of the inflatable was made of heavy-duty white nylon fabric and was rigged to large metal trusses on stage. The metal trusses helped stabilize the inflatable wall and after Apollo’s set, they lowered down to the floor, making it easy for the production team to unclip the inflatable, which deflated within seconds.
During Omar Apollo’s performance, two high-quality projectors were used to project various images and videos, including live footage of the performance, onto the inflatable screen. As the singer and songwriter performed and walked around the stage, the images changed to match the vibe of his songs. The projected images switched from live footage of the performance to videos of flowers to pre-recorded videos of the singer to an image of a room and more. All of the images and videos were extremely high definition.
Inflatable Design Group has worked with many artists, including Omar Apollo, to create custom inflatable stage sets and inflatable stage props. Custom inflatables are perfect for stage sets as they are easy to set up, easy to take down, and they roll up into relatively small packages making them easy to take on the road with you!
