Installations

We specialise in interactive, playful inventions that produce interesting sounds and make people smile. We are also experienced at fabricating all kinds of works for specific reqirements at our workshop in West Yorkshire. This includes visually spectacular art pieces as well as intelligent sensors and interactive sound and light controllers to be used in spaces and other installations.
