“Digital Confetti" was a one night interactive installation created for Metropolitan Home’s “Design 100” gala. We transformed the mid-century modern interior of the Four Seasons Pool Room with a dynamic sound and light experience.

A 12-foot balloon floated above the pool, displaying digital confetti that could be activated with custom maracas. Shaking one maraca would stir up the confetti, while shaking another formed different design words— both interactions generating their own musical note.

The installation builds off of traditional interactive party elements such as noisemakers, confetti, balloons and fireworks, creating an entertaining centerpiece that allowed both individual and group interaction.


Our custom, candy-colored maracas stirred up and transformed the digital confetti throughout the night.


Spectacle x Digital Media encouraged an exploration of these enhanced and memorable experiences.
