Newport Beach Film Festival (a.k.a.Breakfast with George Clooney!!)

If you need a reason to head to Newport Beach (and breakfast with George isn’t enough)…this year marks the eleventh annual Newport Beach Film Festival. Screenings encompassing a variety of genres run from April 22-29 in various theaters in and around the Fashion Island/Newport Beach area. This year marks the expansion of the Art, Architecture + Design Film Series.

So…how does this relate to commercial interior design or office space design? It all started with a “pop up space,” a vacant space used for a very brief period of time. Pop up spaces are used frequently as art galleries or retail stores…and they happen FAST. One of the most famous pop up spaces was a 220 foot barge tied to a pier in the Hudson River one December by Target. This time the NBFF needed a space for the Variety Hospitality Suite, and the Irvine Company delivered. Now, it was up to Tangram Interiors to develop a quick and easily executable plan for the space. We went from walking the space and picking paints on Thursday, to having a furniture plan finalized on Friday, painting the space on Saturday (thank you Miriam and friends), having IT run cables on Monday and finally having office furnishings picked up from our offices and delivered to the hospitality suite the following Wednesday.

Here’s the before, during and after…
