Commissioned by Asda supermarkets to mark the entrance to their new store at Thames Gateway in Greenhithe Kent.

‘Sails’ reflects the historical, maritime links of the area where the Cutty Sark was built.

Designed in stainless steel and fibre optic lighting it also connects with the emerging role of the Thames Valley as a new technology enterprise area.

8 metres tall, the piece will withstand the prevailing high winds and maritime conditions of the local environment.
