Project Requirements: To mark a major milestone and as part of its general ongoing refurbishment plans, the client contacted David Harber to see if we might be able to assist with a large piece for the main road entrance to their Marlow premises.

Initial ideas and concepts which David Harber was asked to consider were: lighting and appearance in low level lighting conditions, moving forward with the times, technology and branding the sculpture with the SAS logo. This location is the UK but there are many more SAS offices globally.

SAS is a company known for investing in original sculptural artworks, as seen here at SAS's North Carolina headquarters, often in polished stainless steel. So this appeared to be a strong tie to David Harber’s experience and signature style.

The Proposed Concepts: Primarily, David wanted to showcase the illusion of reflection, and also different layers of operation that exist within the world of software.

Many variation on the two themes were proposed, all in stainless steel. Four of the proposals are shown on this page.
