Firm packs sets full of ‘Inergi’
Though one of the smaller set design firms, Inergi’s portfolio offers a broad and varied sample of set design.
Its work at KERO-TV in Bakersfield, Calif., makes uses of gentle curves and broad printed backgrounds to create a cost-effective solution that packs a high-tech look. The set combines an eye-catching shade of blue with rich wood tones to create a traditional yet contemporary feel.
The curved elements continue at Inergi’s set at WHNT-TV in Huntsville, Ala., including a unique camera center background that frames the station’s “10” logo. The set’s monitor wall includes a gentle implementation of the curve as does the multi-tiered headers. The studio environment is finished by bold blue walls and metal trusswork. The anchor desk, which sit upon a riser with vent-like accents incorporates a unique curved shape is fronted by a square logo panel.
At WAFB-TV in Baton Rogue, La., Inergi created a studio set that uses the station’s newsroom as a background. Wide wood columns complement blue toned walls and a uniquely-flared anchor desk. This compact set also includes a standup area with plasma screen and working weather office.
Another Inergi-designed weather center can be found at WSFA-TV in Montgomery, Ala. Built around a working presentation pod, the set is stocked with multiple monitors and workspaces. A free-floating header showcases the station’s weather branding.
