Arundel plinth

Made as a donation to an art trail event, this four-metre corten plinth is now a permanent feature of our local landscape.

About the project

In 2018, we donated this plinth, four metres tall and fabricated in corten, to the annual Arundel Gallery Trail. Installed on the Causeway roundabout on the main A27 outside the town, it was initially home to ‘Waving Man’ by sculptor Giles Penny, whose work is also displayed in London’s Canary Wharf. After the event, the plinth was occupied by one of our life-size, laser-cut ‘Tommies’ that we produced for the centenary of the end of the Great War. 

In 2019, our plinth supported a sculpture by recent graduate Andrei Precup called ‘The Hierarchy of Worries’, inspired by pollution and the potentially negative impact of oil. 

As with so many Outdoor Design projects, the plinth’s simple appearance belies our high-level skill and workmanship. We engineered the internal framework to ensure structural integrity; the fabrication involved 18 metres of welding and polishing to give our trademark smooth, seamless finish. 

The plinth become a local landmark and we’re delighted to be contributing to the landscape and cultural life of our home town.
