LIGHTfaktor Shines at Hospice Austin's Beauty Unveiled 2015 - Joins creative director and CFDA award-winning jewelry designer, Nak Armstrong
December 18, 2015 (PRLEAP.COM) Entertainment NewsAUSTIN, TX – December 18, 2015 –Austin, TX based lighting design firm, LIGHTfaktor, was in good company at this year's Beauty Unveiled, held at Fair Market. Benefiting Hospice Austin, a nonprofit that provides end-of-life care, Beauty Unveiled has become one of Austin's most anticipated and memorable annual events. Under the creative direction of CFDA award-winning designer Nak Armstrong, some of the city's finest creative minds joined forces to bring guests a sensory extravaganza.
LIGHTfaktor worked closely with Armstrong to achieve his lighting vision for the event. "I couldn't be more appreciative for LIGHTfaktor's involvement in executing my creative vision for Beauty Unveiled 2015. Lighting is one of the most crucial aspects at any event and they achieved the ideal ambiance by highlighting the architecture of Fair Market," Armstrong said.
An enormous LED video wall showed chic videos of a single model, artfully displaying Armstrong's jeweled works of art. The video wall was made even larger by black fabric outstretched on all sides with entrancing projections of Armstrong's signature angular gemstones. Wireless uplights glowed soft blue on columns spaced about the venue. Two parallel empire tables spanning the length of the room were staged with David Kurio's orchid laden troths full of floating candles. "LIGHTfaktor's LED wall and projections surpassed all expectations and provided an incredibly innovative backdrop for the dinner while perfectly complementing the elegant tablescape by David Kurio Designs," said Armstrong.
After a dinner catered by La Condessa, guests enjoyed live music and libations while LIGHTfaktor used High End Systems Shapeshifters and DLV moving projectors to turn Fair Market into an elegant but noticeably hip listening room. " This was a really special event to participate in," said Wes Lane, LIGHTfaktor principal and lead designer. "Working with such creative talents is always an invigorating experience, but when it's for an amazing cause as well – that's what makes it really count"
About the event and LIGHTfaktor's roll, Hospice Austin's Director of Development, Robin Clemons said, "Beauty Unveiled has become one of the most exclusive and visually stunning events on Austin's fall calendar. We couldn't do it without the creative skill of organizations such as LIGHTfacktor. The funds raised from this unique event will allow Hospice Austin to do what we do best – provide end-of-life care to all who need it, regardless of that patient's complexity of diagnosis, cost of care, or ability to pay."
