We started with a selection of concept images that featured different styles of tree to see what worked best for the space. The tree is 6m high and required structural sign off to ensure it is fit for purpose. Working closely with engineering company Miko Engineering, We carefully designed the tree to ensure it would be structurally sound, and also be able to pack down for travelling to the install location. Due to the size, and the features required, we opted for a fully fabricated trunk, with a mix of steel and natural branches. This tree is exposed to daylong sunlight, so we sourced special white paint that wouldn’t discolour. We also worked closely with our suppliers to create a one-off white UVSIlx colourfast foliage.
