During the football season, NOS broadcasts every Sunday primetime the talkshow NOS Studio Voetbal on NPO1. The host Tom Egbers analyses in the talkshow the football news of the past week together with the football analysts.
‘Every Sunday converted the crew the entire studio in no time to the NOS Studio Voetbal – setting.’
Contemporary interior was the starting point in the set design
The main set consisted of component parts such as a platform, an interview table, various set walls with built-in large tv-monitors, half round pillars, a hanging object and printed backwalls. For the finishing of the set pieces I used high-quality materials such as laminates and colored acrylics. The set pieces were build on wheels so that the entire set was easily changeable and mobile. I designed a lighting object in the form of a ring which hung from the ceiling to provide smooth, dispersed illumination above the presentation set. The custom-made light object was made of wood and laminated with high-pressure decorative laminates (HPL). The graphic department of NOS applied the artwork of the stadium for the digital printing.
High quality surface finishing
High quality finishes are the materials that I often use for finishing the set furniture and decorative walls. In order to give a shape to the set, I make choices from a broad spectrum of finishes, from veneers to series of decorative laminates. My favorite is the wood veneer because is a natural product. What really stands out in the wood veneer is the unique texture, especially if it is influenced by colored light. The HPL laminates are more suitable for an intensive use.
Advice on the furniture
In addition to the set design, I gave the client an advice on choosing the armchair for the presentation. The armchair were an huge investment and would say a lot about the programma. However, this was a piece of furniture that would be used frequently also in the future, so I suggested to choose the GAME produced by Johanson Design. Before purchasing anything, we tested the chair in the studio. Arthur Eltink Agencies supplied the armchairs.
