Mike TenHaken from Word Of Grace Community Church in Sheboygan Falls, WI brings us this honeycomb design.
They made this design for their series “New”. The design consisted of ten hexagons equal in size, about 4 feet at their widest points. The middle hexagon was actually two hexagons made into a box with two open sides to let light shine in. Inside that particular hexagon box was tin foil lining to reflect the lights that shine in so that the word NEW illuminates. Doing this allowed Mike to create a surprise or mystery element to the stage design. During worship, the middle hexagon was not lit and once the message lighting came on the “NEW” hexagon almost glowed then changed to a subtle, warm, less distracting lit stage design for the message.
Each hexagon was made from 1-inch styrofoam. One was made into a box, four were cut to look like hexagon frames which include spandex stapled to the back, the other five are simply painted with a blackberry paint color and a ivory paint color. Each were hung from the ceiling with braided fishing line and lit from front and back.
