Working closely with the Lowry Theatre and Koncept Interior Designers we created a completely unique tree in the famous Manchester theatre.
The brief we were given was to create a tree that paid homage to the Cotton Trade closely linked to the nearby docks.
To start, we built a steel trunk which we covered with synthetic resin that is both lifelike and flame retardant. The branches were made from wooden poles which had hundreds of cotton discs in place of leaves.
For an extra glow, we ran wires through the stems with warm white lights.
The end result is a magnificent display and a real focal point for the new theatre restaurant and bar.
