OP002 & OP002+

City ⟶ Manhattan, NY / Brooklyn, NY

We transformed a 124 year-old Russian bathhouse into a one-time intimate immersive venue, featuring two floors of lighting / video installations & a functioning pool with saunas.

We followed up with an afterparty in collaboration with RINSED, featuring a live lighting experience.

We took over the Russian & Turkish Bathhouse in East Village and transformed it into an intimate immersive neon playground.

Selling out in less than 3 hours, OP002 brought together an international selection of DJs, moving from HD’s club deconstructions to Jacques Greene & Hank Jackson’s house & techno.
Nitemind and YOU designed two floors of installations, splitting the experience into two: the cafe became a purple-hued dance floor with lasers and neon, while the underground spa became a red-hued rave dungeon with functioning saunas and pool.

Following, we collaborated with RINSED to throw the OP002+ afterparty at the Umbrella Factory loft – featuring Jacques Greene and RINSED residents, along with Ocular Presence performing a live lighting experience.
