Experiential Design

Ellen Porteus & Giulia Giannini McGauran

The Facebook Partner Center wanted to introduce the versatility of their Stories feature through an entertaining, interactive installation. One Hat One Hat collaborated with artists Ellen Porteus & Giulia Giannini McGauran to bring their 2D concept to life. One Hat One Hand worked with Facebook team through interviews, sketching, 3D Modeling and interaction design to build a magical experience that engages guests while translating the in-app sticker feature to a real educational exhibit. 


One of the most exciting parts of this installation was solving how the Stickers would float within the viewing frames. Using pneumatic air pistons and a hidden compressed air system that linked up to a control board, participants could seamlessly make Stickers appear by pressing a button and bringing these features into the frame. Each button has a sound, so One Hat One Hand devised a system that coordinated the lighting and sound design with the users actions.
