RedEye and Chicago Magazine Broadcast Studio Sets

This design-build project transformed an old storage closet in the Tribune Tower into an award-winning broadcast set. The joint innovative Chicago Magazine / RedEye studio recently won the NewscastStudio Set of the Year, Webcast.

The challenge that required an innovative solution was to create two distinct sets in a 2-foot by 14-foot space.  The two brands serve distinct audiences. The Chicago Tribune’s free daily “RedEye” targets a young and hip audience, while the “Chicago Magazine” is directed at a sophisticated and upscale audience.

Chicago Scenic designed and fabricated a studio system with a revolving wall complete with a different lighting package for each sets.  The Chicago Magazine wall pivots in place to cover the Red Eye wall.  What typically might require many project partners was serviced solely by Chicago Scenic’s team undertaking strategy, design, scenery, lighting and technology.
