Macalloy Stainless Cables were used for this highly innovative piece of modern art in the cosmopolitan city of London.
Macalloy stainless cables have been used on the London Urban Oasis. The Urban Oasis is a living sculpture that provides a soothing respite from daily life. The living sculpture includes several renewable energy features such as photovoltaic cells on leaves that open and close with the sun, rainwater harvesting collected on the leaves and a wind turbine and hydrogen fuel cell.
The Macalloy stainless cables are used to support the structure and keep it in place by tensioning from all sides.
