BFLS Architects and Arup Acoustics have teamed up to design a portable stage that delivers an incomparable acoustic performance that both audiences and musicians around the world will love. The aluminum-framed structure is shaped like a shell and wrapped in an inflatable envelope, and the interior is lined with timber panels that enhance its acoustics.
Specifically designed to enhance the ability of performers to hear each other on stage, Soundforms  also project both the spoken word and music out into the audience. Exceptionally portable, these unique stages are very easy to erect and dismantle for use in other locations.
After making their original debut at the Olympics in London this year , Soundform stages have since been used for the Queen’s diamond jubilee and other events. There are three different sizes, Mark I, II, and III, and each are the result of intense acoustical research. And they look pretty cool too!
