 Following on from our success at the London 2012 Summer Olympics, in June of 2013 we were asked to tender for the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics. Our brief was to reproduce St Basil’s Cathedral in Moscow as a floating group of 15 domed towers coming together, as well as 30 large sealed ground based characters. These latter units were a mixture of animals and articles brightly artworked with a famous Russian pottery design that is the equivalent of Wedgwood in the UK.   We were ....

After some investigating we found a much lighter material called TPU that we could use. We pr....

Imagine were asked to tender back in 2011 for the supply and operation of 4 giant helium clouds to be used for the opening ceremony of the London 2012 Olympic Games. After a long drawn out process we learnt of our success with the tender and it soon became a huge project for us to manage in terms of design, logistics and manufacturing. LOGOC expressed their desire to have the clouds looking 'fluffy' so a series of experiments began to ensure the required look was achieved. This resulted in us so....
