The ideals and metaphors that drive our design

Earth-friendly ideas in action from Bergmeyer

This just in from Jared Cole of Bergmeyer:

“One of the design team’s primary goals is to use earth-friendly materials for the stage. For instance, the carpet dot for the speaker will be made from recycled carpet, and can be recycled itself after the event. The wall and floor covering will consist of recyclable paper products. And the “tree” and airplanes will also be recyclable. In trying to express the theme of “Ideas in Action,” we’re striving not only to be symbolic through the use of paper airplanes, but also accountable in the materials we use. The stage, its symbolism and materials combined, is a metaphor; it is an idea put into action.”
