We feel very fortunate to have worked with Christina Mackie on the 2015 Tate Britain Commission.

We were involved in the project from an early stage, with regular meetings at Christina’s studio to develop her ideas and detailed drawings into CAD. Working on the many layers of detail with Christina has been thoroughly enjoyable.

There are well over 200 components within this piece of work – some machined, welded, lasercut, rolled or bent; some plastic, aluminium or steel…… or combinations of those – All have been deeply considered. Ensuring an accurate fit when the components came together was the biggest challenge.
