Chilstone get Artistic in Switzerland
Monday, September 29, 2014
Chilstone have branched out... into the wonderful world of art. Several months ago Chilstone were approached by the renowned art gallery, Gmurzynska with an unusual request. They asked for Chilstone to craft thirty plinths for an art installation they were planning for an exhibition in Switzerland. The challenge was that they were needed in Geneva within 6 weeks. The pedestals were specially designed by our skilled craftsman who worked over several weekends to complete the urgent order. The order was carefully packed and transported across several countries to reach its destination. After all the hard work, the final result was most definitely worth it. The plinths were specially designed to support these striking vivid blue statuettes of Venus made from a highly engineered polyurethane resin. This stunning art installation is in the grounds of the 5* Hotel Baur Au Lac, on the banks of Lake Geneva. The display is illuminated at night and over looks lake Geneva. During Chilstone's 60 year history this has to be one of the most stunning locations that our products have been placed, and in the most artistic way!
