Franklin, Tennessee is home to many musicians and music-centered businesses, including First Company Management, a company that provides organizational, logistical management and promotional services for domestic and international music tour productions and festivals, most prominently in the Contemporary Christian Music genre. They came to us with a concept for using some of their stage lighting trusses to create unique dimensional signage for their headquarters here in Franklin.
They supplied us with the lighting trusses from their stage, which we thought was an excellent use of existing materials, and we attached the trusses to wood backers that match a lot of other wood detail throughout their offices. The wood also gave us good anchoring points for the truss display.
Using the trusses and wood as the anchors and virtual “frames” for the structure, we created an aluminum track hanging frame system that is completely interchangeable. It consists of 1/8” thick non-glare, clear, acrylic frames that are suspended on wire cables specifically designed not to shadow anything around them. The frames themselves have a very nice, solid feel, and the photographs look great beneath the non-glare acrylic. They can be viewed and photographed for media and other purposes with no fear of bright reflection or glare.
The hanging frames have very little hardware or overhang that would cause large amounts of coverage or shadow. The suspension plates have extra holes, so they are completely
moveable, adjustable in number and position, and editable for the future, which makes the whole system very flexible with no new equipment needed.
As the artists or promotions change, the photos can be replaced in a quick process that makes the structure timeless and easily updateable for artists, seasons, and even special occasions!
All in all, this wall arrangement makes for a great display with an industrial, yet very artistic flair. The artists represented by First Company Management are growing more and more popular, and their promotional technology services and events are always in demand. It was fun to be a part of this project that incorporates a little of their stage into their corporate world!
