Top notch DJ’s, superb cocktails, and a line out the door every week-end—all that was missing was something to help the minimalist decor pop. So when we were invited to install a piece of our choosing at Middlesex Lounge in Cambridge, MA for the parent company’s holiday party, we jumped at the opportunity. We were so enthusiastic about it, in fact, that we soon found ourselves in a mini-assembly line, scoring, folding, and gluing 180 vellum pyramids.

Controlled by an Arduino board, the 180 addressable LED’s feature pre-programmed animations that change slightly based on the reading from the piezo-electric sensor we attached to the house subwoofers.
