North Carolina’s premiere dance club, X Nightclub, enlisted V Squared Labs to design a 60-ft projection mapped DJ booth and connecting wall sculpture. This massive structure acts as the focal point to the entire club, starting at the top of the entrance stair and working its way onto the dance floor. The design is based around the abstract idea of an EDM pipe organ, intermixed with triangular geometry to break up the elements. This is a permanent installation, custom built specifically for the club’s interior space. It flows with the architecture, wraps around a performance stage, and grounds itself to a speaker cavity that supports the DJ booth. Incredibly complex, this is one of our most experimental mapping projects.
