Nike Lunar One Shot Skate Art Feature

Category: Set Design

Client: California Skateparks

Date: 2013

Project Overview:

Nike wanted to create a skateable sculpture that looked nothing like a skatepark feature, but would highlight the skate styles of three of Nike SB’s top athletes: Luan Oliveira, Shane O’neill and Sean Malto. This sculpture was to be assembled at the Buffalo Central Transit station in Buffalo NY, and have the Lunar One-Shot commercial filmed on location.

Scope:

• 3D conceptual design
• 3D modeling
• Renderings
• Construction document package
• On-site project management for construction

Design Challenges:

Making a sculpture that resembled the style of a famous sculptor, creating an art form that worked perfectly for all three skaters, getting the installation set so athletes could get the right lines to hit their feature, and creating construction documents for a sculpture with no right angles.

Solution:

Worked with builder, California Skateparks, to design a sculpture that met the vision of Nike for this project. The art piece boasted clean lines, simplistic geometry and was also fully skateable.
