Showing how tapering can play a role in stylish and contemporary product design, we have recently produced tapered tubes for light fittings manufactured by the lighting company, Tyson Lighting.
Established in 1961, Tyson Lighting manufactures all of their products in Britain and are purveyors of bespoke decorative contract lighting. Providing lighting solutions for all kinds of applications including work spaces, High Street stores, bars and restaurants, care homes and hotels, the company have previously produced innovative lighting designs for clients such as Pizza Hut in the Trafford Centre Manchester, the Gresham London Showroom, plus various KFC and Chilli Banana restaurants.
For Tyson Lighting, we produced a stainless steel tube with a 75mm diameter taper to 40mm over 900mm. Into these tubes, Tyson have added their innovative light fittings to create a spectacular example of contemporary lighting.
At Techniswage, we are delighted to have worked with Tyson Lighting, who have been championing British craftsmanship for over 50 years from their base in Lancashire.
Techniswage were recently approached by Andy Knight Ltd. to assist them in realising an ambitious window display project for a luxury fashion brand.
The brief was to produce a large volume of giant sewing needles which would be used to symbolise the perils of the everyday. The Hermes products would act as a shield and deflect the grey aura of the harsh elements. They also serve to juxtapose, thus highlight, the intricate detailing of the individually screen-printed scarf designs .
Take a look a the images to see how this fascinating project came to life!
Having been approached by BAE Systems to help on improving an existing design of lightening conductor guarding the carbon fibre radar dome for the fleet of Type 45’s.
Techniswage were able to fulfil their requirement through their subcontractor Lola. The brief was to reduce the diameter of a stainless steel tube in a stepped form to a smaller diameter over 2 metres in order to throw off vortexes created when the air circulated around the straight (non tapered) existing lightening conductor poles. The process was successful and all seven Destroyers were fitted out with the new system within the short window of 5 weeks whilst in dock.
