Description

This exciting project brought with it plenty of design and manufacturing challenges!  Flipside was a major design exhibition located in the empty building that was once the Selfridges Hotel.

The designers’ vision called for a huge circular entrance door that opened on its vertical axis.  To achieve this, we made bespoke large format single cast GRC concrete panels.  These had to be millimetre perfect to allow the two-way door system to operate smoothly and safely.

The exhibition housed futuristic installations by major designers an was visited by hundreds of people.
