Holographic Centerpieces Communicate Hope at 9/11 Memorial Benefit

We were honored to design and produce the 15th Anniversary Benefit for the 9/11 Memorial and Museum. This year marked the 9th consecutive year we’ve partnered with the nonprofit. It feels like we have grown alongside the organization, watching the museum being built out of the rubble to become a global destination and symbol of resilience and hope.


This year the theme was “Milestones,” which we brought to life through a dynamic stage and set that was designed to reflect the shape of the building itself. Images of the sky reflecting in the glass surfaces of the museum’s exterior and milestone moments in the life of the institution were projected.

Holographic centerpieces with 3-D projections of the Survivor Tree – an icon of hope – hovered in the center of each table. These echoed the event’s theme and changed with the seasons over the course of the evening, while Samantha Bee and Jon Bon Jovi entertained the guests.
