Inspired by the 70th Emmy Awards key art and gold Emmy statuette, the signature décor element of the Governors Ball was an immersive light field suspended overhead. Thousands of LED lights twinkled through the color spectrum, creating dynamic, grand-event architecture. Furniture, table linens, florals and other décor in a color palette including shades of blue, precious metals (gold, silver, platinum) and provided modern opulence, sophistication and glamour.
