You want a tree to hang upside down from the ceiling of your lobby? You've got it!
Outrageous! Innovative! Stimulating! Whatever you have in mind, we will strive to find a way of making it a reality.
plantART make large artificial trees, up to 7m high, mainly using ‘natural wood’ trunks and branches which have previously been seasoned and kiln dried.
For super large artificial trees (up to 15m high) or something truly extraordinary, we adopt a process employing 100% man-made fibres using synthetic materials with amazing results.
We go beyond the “norm” and what are generally regarded as “traditional methods” of building artificial trees to replicate as near to the real thing as practicably possible.
Three unusual commissions come to mind which allowed plantART to engage our innovative design skills.
Horizontal, 8m long artificial cherry blossom trees suspended 6m above the reception, foyer and bar area of the Raddison Blu East Midlands International Airport Hotel.
Extremely effective visual accessory, an unusual blend of natural softening materials to compliment a very contemporary setting.
Up-side-down fake tree. A 6m faux tree with a 4.5m diameter canopy, suspended 8m from the ceiling and covered with 15 Km - (yes 15,000m) - of “state of the art” fibre-optic lights.
An engineering extravaganza to construct, erect and suspend on site, creating a seamless join giving the impression this faux tree was growing down out of the ceiling.
This is without doubt, one of our most impressive examples, showing the versatility of synthetic materials, which in turn are lightweight: an artificial tree this size weighing less then 200Kgs.
London Fashion Week
In this instance, the world renown Mayfair Hotel, Claridge’s, the venue Mulberry chose to exhibit their stunning and exciting spring collection.
What on paper appeared to be a straight-forward task of building four 3.5m trees, as two interlinking, over arching pairs with a combined spread per pair of 7.5m.
The tree canopies were extend forward and down an additional 1.2m. these canopies were then needed to support 150kgs of wet floral oasis and flowers thereby creating a pronounced cantilever effect.
The task required some ingenious engineering to overcome the unforeseen problems, as we discovered the trees had to be 100% self-supporting and could not be fixed to either the Ballroom floors or walls.
The result was an outstanding, artificial trees built around a complex internal steel support.
About four months in the making, including design consultation, engineering calculations, construction and installation; all put together for around 15 minutes exposure to the World’s media; Mulberry certainly know how to co-ordinate the best people and the result was a fabulous show.
