Showtime House

The annual Showtime House is Showtime Network’s unique multimedia show-house during the New York Fashion Week.  Showtime's 2010 edition took over three penthouses atop Manhattan’s iconic Cassa Hotel and Residences, transforming these remarkable spaces into show-stopping rooms of modern design inspired by seven Showtime original series.

Bruce Mau Design was invited to create an installation for the transitional spaces that bridge the seven featured shows. Using a trompe-l'œil technique called anamorphosis, our team hand-painted an iconic symbol for each show that is perfectly viewable from only one location. From all other vantage points, the images become highly distorted graphic abstractions.

This treatment speaks to the complex and often fragmented nature of Showtime's lead characters, and fills the navigation of the spaces with moments of discovery.
