Client: Bex Simon/The Mercers Company
Location: Covent Garden, London
Chris was chosen by acclaimed ArtSmith Bex Simon to fabricate and install a set of gates Bex had been commissioned to design for Old Brewer’s Yard in Covent Garden.
It was important to Bex that the gates stand alone as an independent piece of art, whilst also portraying a link back to the site’s history and the commissioners; her final design beautifully represented the simplified stages of brewing with stylised barley forms at the base, moving to oak barrels in the centre and finishing with the effervescence of the finished product at the top.
You can view photos of the fabrication process on our blog post here.
Chris and his team have worked with us on a number of projects in the Lake District National Park. His design and high quality work will leave a long lasting legacy in the Lake District. We have an excellent working relationship and find Chris and his team friendly, efficient and open to our ideas and suggestions.
We have worked with Chris and his team for many years now and they have completed some of our most complicated sculpture projects, with the utmost professionalism and care. Our relationship with CB Arts is more than client/supplier, we see Chris and his team as our partners who we trust. Chris Brammall is an artist in his own right and it is this element that makes his manufacture offer special to us, he understands form, scale, aesthetics and how materials will work in the public realm and this is invaluable.
We are so delighted with our two major pieces of work from Chris - a Spitfire Sculpture and our staircase. Chris listened to our requirements and gave us designs which exceeded our expectations. The Spitfire is the first thing you see on arrival at DCS Group and it is simply awesome. Then in reception visitors experience his amazing staircase as they make their way to our meeting rooms. All in all - he has created superb work and we are delighted. We would definitely use Chris again.
We are so pleased with the metalwork installations CB Arts have created and installed at Whitby, the house looks absolutely wonderful, as do the barriers. The installation team were great and everything went smoothly. It has been a pleasure to work with Chris and the team.
