Next project Carbon Ladder Previous project Julia Necklace

Marc was invited by the London Design Festival to design an exterior object or large sculpture, to be sold at auction after the festival. Marc chose to work with the sponsor ArcelorMittel, the world’s largest steel manufacture for the project, as he has always had a particular affinity with the material, especially when used in the right way. Marc chose to enamel the large mushroom pavilion to protect the steel from corrosion in the outdoor setting in muddy industrial RAL colours Celadon green, pale blue, and mauve.
