The "Wow Factor"

The “Marsyas” installation in London, realised for the artist Anish Kapoor in 2002, was a unique assignment. The successful completion of this spectacular membrane sculpture, which aroused great interest throughout the world, was made possible by the involvement of the company at an early stage of the design process.The sculpture is also a demonstration of the structural efficiency of membrane construction. In the middle of the 35 metre high Tate Modern hall, designed by the architects Herzog & de Meuron, a six tonne, 25 metre diameter steel ring hung horizontally above the heads of visitors. It was supported solely by a slender, free-spanning membrane structure 155 metres long formed using tensioned PVC fabric membrane.
