  • House Of Fairytales Working Sculpture
    House Of Fairytales Working SculptureA piece of fantastical upcycled storage furniture, complete with working lamp and wheels. Commissioned by The House Of Fairytales for their grand festival tour. Created in collaboration with Edwin Peel.
  • Star Wars K-2SO for Comic Con Silicon Valley
    Star Wars K-2SO for Comic Con Silicon ValleyA wonderful continuation of our exciting collaborative adventures with Owen Gildersleeve and team. After the hugely positive response to our Iron Man build in 2016, the organisers of the Silicon Valley Comic Con asked us back for a second year, to develop a new paper sculpture to wow the crowds in 2017. With the recent release of the new Star Wars film Rogue One, we all decided that it had to be the incredible new humanoid robot K-2SO!
  • Lush - Oxford Street Window Display
    Lush - Oxford Street Window DisplayA collaboration with Owen Gildersleeve and YCN to create a moving window display for Lush's flagship Oxford Street store in London. The project was based around illustrations by Charlotte Day, that we developed into three-dimensional electronic, mechanical and structural display elements.
  • Dewars Whisky Cask Installation
    Dewars Whisky Cask InstallationWe were contacted by StinkDigital and Mr. President to collaborate on this live kinetic sculpture, which we made to fit inside a sawn off cask for the Dewars Whisky Company. The installation now sits in Dewar's distillery in Scotland and contains a micro-controller that connects it to the internet, creating a link between their website and their physical premises. Every time someone visits the Dewar's website, numerical lights inside the whisky bottles display the new number of web hits.
