Hildegard Bechtler's design for The Makropulos Case involved building a large flown ceiling with integrated tracking and vast amounts of lighting.
The main walls for the set used a combination of traditionally painted canvas, digital print and 3D relief.
This combination of versatile design ideas can seem strange to work with, however, the finished result when lit creates an opulently variable setting.
