Built for FELASA, the client required an area that visitors could ‘make their mark’ and have a photograph taken. This was kept at the end of the stand due to the nature of the activity, and to attract attention as people walked past. There was also the need to an ‘educational’ area to enable presentations and product display. They were keen on the visual of the ‘ceiling’, using a wave to re-affirm their river logo.
