TEDxDirigo, an independently-organized TED conference, was held in Portland, Maine on September 10. Dirigo (Latin for "I lead") is Maine's motto, an appropriate expression of TED's mission, Ideas Worth Spreading.

Transformit enhanced the stage and public areas of the conference with pieces from our Fascinating Rhythms, Dream Spinners and Ice Floe collections. More photos on Flickr and Facebook.

Build Boston

Transformit will be highly visible at Build Boston 2011, November 16-18: We are collaborating with the deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum to design and produce the opening night BASH, which will feature music, food, drink, and an edgy installation by Boston artist Kenji Nakayama and Transformit. We are exhibiting in booth #267. And our founder, Cynthia Thompson, will present a continuing education session on sustainable design titled "Interior Tension Fabric: Sustainable, functional, affordable and beautiful".

"THIS is an Arrow"

We recently designed and fabricated this soaring, 3d Arrow for the stage of a client's annual sales meeting. Representing the desired sales trend, the arrow points UP. According to the client, "The arrow was perfect, everything I asked for."

The Arrow is now available for rent (projection screen not included). It is 40 feet long by 15 feet wide, 6 inches thick. Height is variable, set during installation. Because it is made with white fabric and the images are projected, it can look like anything! Contact Tom Newhall for details.
