Commissioned by Downing Developments to create a real statement for the newly refurbished Capital Building (ex Royal & Sun Alliance HQ), we had to come up with a solution that avoided using our favourite medium of glass. The sheer size of the wall and lack of access to it’s full surface behind the escalators meant that using glass was simply going to be too heavy. The solution? Using some beautiful modern frosted sheet acrylic tones combined with stainless steel components, in fact 150 components in total!
Taking 4 days to install, the sculpture draws on linear design elements from the original chandeliers that were preserved and refurbished as part of the modernisation.
