Florian Wieder

Israeli press reports suggest the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) and Broadcaster KAN have picked the consultancy led by Florian Wieder to take care of stage design for the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest.

The decision follows a month-long public tender process and was announced yesterday through a number of credible news portals.

2019 will be the sixth time that the 50-year-old Munich-born designer steps up to lead on set design. His previous Eurovision work has largely involved LED screens, which were given a break by budget-conscious Portuguese broadcaster RTP this year.

The next Eurovision Song Contest takes place in May 2019 at Expo Tel Aviv’s newly-built Pavillion 2.
