Stage Origami

Aníbal Ramírez, Rafael Ortíz, José Milán, Ricardo Santiago and Emilio Cuadrado from Casa de Adoración Jabes in Bayamón, Puerto Rico brings us this cool use of Coroplast.

For their congregation’s 13th Anniversary Conference they wanted to do something that would look elegant and provide a good setting for worship sets. They had a limited budget, so they needed to reuse every material that they could in a smart way.

They used 6 Coroplast 4’x8’ sheets that they already had from previous projects, cutting them to shape with a utility knife and scoring in the middle, halfway up, to fold and give a tapered effect that would produce some shadows for a tridimensional effect. For the framing, they used 1-5/8” steel studs, configuring forms that would project the Coroplast shapes 12” to the front, alternating top and bottom projections with middle projections. Then they fixed the frames to the existing backwall. They have been using steel studs in their recent projects because they are a lightweight material, easy to work with and reusable on-and-on for many applications.

Lighting brought the final touch, producing interesting shades on the angled faces, giving depth to the Coroplast configuration. They used LED par cans and 6 LED linear wash lights to achieve the lighting effect.

(6) White Coroplast Sheets
(47) 1-5/8”Steel Studs
Drywall Screws
Flat Black Paint

Coroplast sheets were reused from past designs, so they spent about $150 on steel studs and paint.

  27. Cheryl Halter says:

    We are thinking of doing this stage design soon. It would go up April 23, 2017. As many before me have asked, any info you could send on construction, details, measurements for cutting the coroplast boards, details for constructing the frame, etc., would be greatly appreciated. A sketch up file has been mentioned and you could send that, too, but I don’t know if I need anything special on my end to read it. So……I would be grateful for any help you can send my way.

  33. Josh Huber says:

    I used this design and created something similar at K2thechurch in Salt Lake City. My sections are 12 feet high so I added half of sheet of coroplast to each section. I used wood 2x2s for the depth framing and 2x4s for the main structure. I didn’t cut out the middle angled gap but did one cut and pulled the sides apart creating the gap. This gave me more material per foot and avoided wasted material. I have 9 sections about 4.5 feet wide on each one. I would post a pic with this comment if it was an option. I have the backdrop lit with a row of showline par 155 zoom from above and showline bar 660 from the stage.

  34. Daniel Rockers says:
