Studio Three Sixty designs and builds a new kind of temporary venue . . . Visit them on stand F17 at the ABTT Theatre Show this week.
UK - Award-winning designer Lucy Osborne, internationally acclaimed lighting designer Emma Chapman and lighting specialist and designer Howard Eaton are officially launching their innovative new venue design company Studio Three Sixty at the ABTT Theatre Show this week.

Studio Three Sixty designs and builds a new kind of temporary venue, using the latest technology to create beautiful spaces bursting with versatility.

The story began with Roundabout - a very special commission from new writing theatre company Paines Plough to design and build the world's first Plug and Play Theatre. Roundabout went on to win The Stage Awards 'Theatre Building of the Year 2015'.

Studio Three Sixty was founded by Osborne, Chapman and Eaton to design more temporary venues using the ideas and technology developed for Roundabout.

"We are absolutely delighted to be at ABTT at the launch of our new venture," says Chapman. "Interest in the company has been inspiring and the support we're receiving is incredible. We seem to have captured the imagination of the industry with what we can achieve by harnessing the latest technology to deliver something exceptional."

The team's next venue, 'Studio 360', is designed to stand-out in an urban environment, as well as on green field sites. Self-contained and fully weather-proof, Studio 360 has a unique heating and ventilation system which means it can be used all year round.

"It is up and running in a day, and our plug and play technology means shows can be replicated anywhere without the need to refocus or replot," explains Chapman. "Seating can be reconfigured quickly and easily to create a versatile space able to accommodate a variety of programming throughout a day."

The venue is available to hire for arts, corporate and private events from May 2016.

"We're excited to meet the industry and introduce our new venue concept - so head over to our stand and we'll be happy to speak with you about your event," says Chapman.

Howard Eaton comments: "Also on the Studio Three Sixty stand will be a small section of one of the lighting units developed for the Roundabout. These used RGBW and tuneable white LEDs in custom fixtures developed by Howard Eaton Lighting Ltd (HELL).

"The 591 fixtures used for the stage lighting used a narrow angle collimator and a 16 bit dimming engine by HELL. The vomitories to the Roundabout were lit with a fitting using an ellipsoidal collimator and the installation was completed by the houselights which used the tuneable white LEDs and a medium angle collimator."

Find Studio Three Sixty at the ABTT Theatre Show on stand F17 at Alexandra Palace, London, on Wednesday 24th to Thursday 25th June.
