MOE – design of a pop-up club made of polystyrene panels

MOE Club is a new model of MOE'e light and video augmented modular spatial construction that merges with a real-time generated video and graphics. This time is designed as a pop-up club in the shape of floating cube, entirely made of standard polystyrene panels!


MOE was first introduced on Illectricity Festival in 2009, and soon after was exhibited on vari­ous festivals and galleries throughout Europe. It’s all in one DIY project by Simon Morasi Pipercic (product designer) and Vedran Kolac (consultant in digital media).

MOE CLB is a concept for temporary and reus­able clubbing space; a pop-up club in the shape of floating cube which marks the area of a dance-floor and provides an open space for the ease of peoples movement. It can serve for various types of events – partys, concerts, festivals, exhibitions, fairs – both indoors and outdoors.

Although it is visually quite strong, the floating cube functions well in all kind of locations; either to mark the event space and invite people when outdoors, or to present a “space in a space” when indoors.

The con­tent added trough video projection gives it a site-specific identity changed over time. For example, MOE CLB can be used to mark various dance floors on a festival, with an aim to visually demonstrate the atmosphere inside each.

The modular club is designed to be easily assem­bled and disassembled in any needed size, with an aim to be be easily put in a right relation with the space and context. Its walls consist of standard polystyrene panels with carved slots for intercon­nection. Due to their thickness, the modules are easy to store and transport.

The content is added trough video projection which follows the thought pattern of a physical object; every panel is textured separately, video textures are generated in real time and are sound responsive.

Current product range consits of: MOE I, MOE II Spa­tial, MOE II Decibel and MOE CLB. Therefore, its multifunctional platform offers wide spectrum of use – from an art installation toward innovative scenography at events that dinamyze the ambient by unique harmonization of space, light and music elements.
