Following the success of Wilkinson Eyre’s exhibition held earlier this year in Hong Kong, Laser Crystal were delighted to work with them once again – this time for their London Design Festival Event.
The Laser Crystal team were thrilled when they heard they’d been called on to recreate some more of Wilkinson Eyre’s iconic architectural designs in their beautiful laser engraved glass blocks.
The new crystal art creations, or ‘3D pictures’ were for the London stint of their truly sensational ‘Inspiring Boundaries’ exhibition, which showcases a selection of their iconic architectural masterpieces.
Once again, the show was a resounding success and the team at WilkinsonEyre passed on some of the fabulous feedback they received at the show. Visitors were pretty taken with the Laser crystal art installations on display!
Some of the comments from visitor’s attending the show:
‘We were surprised by the exhibition, you don’t expect something so impressive in this space’
‘The models are beautiful, they have an other worldly quality to them’
‘They look like they’re floating in mid-air, completely mesmerising to look at.’
‘I’ve never seen more beautiful architectural models, the lightness and precision and refinement is fantastic.’
‘A truly spectacular collection – I wish I could buy one!’

The 18 WilkinsonEyre projects
Featuring 18 WilkinsonEyre projects – the selection of work included both completed and current projects, such as the restoration of the historic Battersea Power Station in London and One Barangaroo in Sydney, a luxury hotel and residential tower located on Sydney’s waterfront.
Laser Crystal’s creative team re-created each building in intricate 3D detail to capture the stunning detail of each building – to produce mind blowing 3D holographic pictures each in a large crystal glass block.
Here are some of the crystal blocks that showcase the intricacy and quality of our 3D laser engraving – an unrivalled quality that we are very proud of.
About the Exhibition

The concept of the Exhibition
‘WilkinsonEyre draw inspiration from both art and science. The pragmatic requirements of a brief are layered and woven together during the design process until a clear solution begins to emerge. WilkinsonEyre believe specificity is crucial to creating a beautiful solution. Each project begins with the exploration of its context and programme, going beyond the physical nature of a site and its environs. The narrative is driven by history, function, cultural contributions and our continual inventiveness.’
Situated in the House of Detention in Clerkenwell, the free, four-day exhibition was open to the public from Wednesday 19 September – Saturday 22 September, 10am – 6pm.
