Two Part Set for NBCSN
We were once again asked to produce the pitch side desk and studio set for NBCSN and their coverage of the UK Premier League matches. Durable as well as being easy to dismantle and reinstall, the set will spend the summer touring various stadiums across the UK.
The set comes in two parts. The studio set consists of a large desk that can be split into three parts. Built to hide all fixings behind the structure, the top counter also splits into two parts. The NBCSN branding included an emulsion paint finish of blue and white, with layered MDF hexagons and smooth surfaces. The wall flats were carved from MDF in our Machining centre, with certain sections built up to four layers thick, giving depth of between 18-54mm. These sections served as a colourful and vibrant backdrop for the presenters using the set. To the sides, layered panels and shapes of MDF were lit by concealed LED strips.
The pitch-side desk needed to be lightweight and easy to transport and store. With this in mind, we created a specially made Dolly and cover so the piece could be moved in one part with ease. Using the same materials, finish and branding as the studio set, the pitch side desk will be used several times during the season for match side correspondence.
