Building Bridges is the slogan of the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest, combining nations and people with different cultural roots in a unique way. This year's stage concept follows the same vision, hence the look of a haptic eye.
The eye, which spans the entire stage, consists of 1270 individual steles and has a width of 43 metres, a height of 14 metres, and a depth of 22 metres.
The steles are equipped with LEDs, just like the stage floor, enabling very special shots when filmed from above. In the background there is an LED wall with a width of 30 metres and a height of 9 metres, which can be hauled apart in the middle.
Florian Wieder, Matthias Kublik, Al Gurdon, and Kurt Pongratz are the responsible artists behind the stage design.
