ATLANTIS RISING

London’s prestigious party venue, 8 Northumberland Avenue, start planning Christmas a year ahead. Setting aside traditional festive themes they asked for splendour on an oceanic scale - the myth of Atlantis was to be brought alive – furthermore they wanted a plush ambient party-zone to match. The brief was ‘epic’ plus ‘glitz & glam’. They key colours – deep-sea blues and paradise pinks.The spirit of the Lost Sunken City rose again thanks to the workshop wizardry and rigging skills of Area 51.

The entrance was an underwater cavern complete with shoals of fish on LCD screens sunk into the walls. Ceiling lighting units became giant jellyfish with festoons of tentacles, a bar became a coral reef of coloured lights, and the main party zone was bathed in tropical sea-blue hues. We also created a parallel pink palace of luxury and sensuality, featuring an entire wall of constantly flowing and flying confetti. The ceiling sparkled with a medley of huge mirror balls. Crystal clear seating worked with both the blue and pinks to enhance the venue’s fantasy feeling.
