In 2017 we designed, developed, manufactured, and installed a moving grid of panels as a temporary piece of experiential interaction. The difficulty of this job was the four-hour window of installation allocated to us by the client, as the parts had to be shipped in component form and assembled quickly on site. Our solution was to use a series of thrust bearings which were threaded onto a steel bar. Each bearing assembly was wound down the bar and locked before the printed graphic was lowered into place. Repeat 25 times and there you have it; a spinning wall in under 4 hours.
In 2023 this display, along with the complimentary light boxes we also created, is still going strong in the foyer.
