ORF has today revealed an image of the completed Eurovision 2015 stage — and it looks amazing!
International set designer Florian Wieder, who previously worked on the Eurovision stages in Düsseldorf in 2011 and Baku in 2012, has dreamed up another glorious platform for this year’s contestants. We’ve compared it to a fish and an eyeball previously, and those comparisons still hold. But this fish is an electric stunner and that eye glimmers with the passion and fabulosity of a Eurovision fan. Slay, Vienna!
“The vision for the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest is the bridge from the past to the present and the future,” ORF’s TV Director Kathrin Zechner said back in January. “The eye is a symbol of this bridge – a mutual respect between cultures, countries and people.”
What do you think of the stage? Are you loving it as much as we are?
