Earlier today the stage design for the Eurovision Song Contest 2018 was exclusively revealed on Eurovision.tv!
Florian Wieder, who was also responsible for the design of Kyiv’s Eurovision stage in 2017 claims his inspiration for Portugal’s first-ever Eurovision stage comes from 4 ideas – maps, the sea, navigation and boats – that are all connected with Portugal’s history and culture.
Paulo Resende, Deputy Executive Producer of Eurovision 2018 said of the stage: “It reflects a Portuguese identity in a very elegant and distinctive way, addresses a certain modernity respecting the Portuguese legacy and, moreover, the created visual ambience underlines a consistent difference. This will be the right staging for all the performers to express their songs and artistic moments and, certainly, no one shall remain unresponsive and indifferent.”
We here at Eurovision Ireland are very impressed with the idea – it’s sure to look amazing when brought to life! But what do you think? Love it? Hate it? Let us know in our poll!
