This exciting model designed and assembled by Atmos has been selected for the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition (7th June – 15th August 2011)
The delicate components were laser-cut by Capital Models, using one of their powerful laser-cutting machines.
The life-size article is actually a staircase in a house in Clapham.
The stair is formed from a series of threads (the filigree bars of the balustrade landing), hanging from above and delicately pulled back like a veil at the edge of the floor to allow movement past, gently splaying around the corner to meet and carry the arriving visitor.

New laser cutter
Capital Models have replaced their 100 watt laser cutter with a larger state-of-the-art 980mm x 1850mm new machine. Please note that the lasers can cut and engrave most materials, including acrylic, MDF, veneer, fabrics etc. (not metals).
