Here is slightly off the wall story, or off the ceiling in this case!

Premier Audi dealership, West London Audi has used our blocks for a stunning piece of automotive sculpture it recently commissioned. Based on the land speed record breaking Type C Streamliner, which was first introduced in 1937, the sculpture has been prominently suspended in the dealership showroom for the benefit of visiting customers.

The sculpture has been constructed from 93 blades of 2mm powder coated aluminium weighing in at 750kg and suspended from the ceiling by 6 stainless steel wires, all entrusted to Barton blocks attached to the ceiling, an absolute testament of their durability.

For dramatic visual effect, the sculpture is angled in different positions each week to capture the light and the eyes of visiting customers. As the first ever Audi competition car, it depicts how futuristic the Type C Streamliner still looks even at over 70 years old.
