Decor elements and impact obstacles, needed for filming a TV show.
Objective: Supply the Zone 3 production team with lightweight, stable obstacles that will induce car accidents without consequences while providing an entertaining television show: Quebec's french version of "Canada's worst drivers".
Supply large format shapes meant to be used as lightweight and fragile obstacles, allowing collisions with the vehicles on obstacle courses, without causing any damage.
Design stable obstacles, solid enough to resist to the wind and to handling, but also fragile enough for the collisions.
Create different shapes and sizes obstacles, but with the same properties.
Provide good television entertainment.
Create a new design reference for this kind of product.
Thickness is important to ensure good stability and solidity.
Low density EPS parts that will break upon collision.
Recycled material incorporated to minimize costs.
Addition of latex paint for identification.
Result: A client extremely satisfied with the performance of the obstacle course and of the result on television. Who would have thought that objects made of 98 % air could be turned into a harmless, yet entertaining obstacle course?
