Forming the centrepiece for Phorm Interior's marvellous design for the Port Office Hotel refurbishment, the intricate screens were designed over an extensive period of conepting and testing.
The screens were designed with a Gentleman's Polo Club theme as the main concept. and thus polo shirts became the cheeky direction, with references to alligators, polo players, penguins and other polo brands. Seahorses were used instead of land horses, as a reference to the nautical nature of the Port Office.
Polo clubs, champagne glasses and some masonic-esque symbols were also intricately interwoven into the design.
A persian pattern was used for the body of the screens, integrating both stars, and a weave.
The screens were laser cut (actually with fine jets of water) then sprayed bronze.
