Product 1 - Stanton Tower:
Stanton Tower is a Stainless Steel sculpture that is a significant
landmark soaring ten metres into the sky. It is an entrance way
design to a new lifestyle and beginning. The Sculpture is vibrant
with the ability to refresh its palette as it constantly changes
its appearance courtesy of its sequenced water supply.
Water cascades from the edges of each disc on a gradually changing
sequence that starts with all the discs producing fine droplets
of water followed by alternating discs and concluding with a small
but rapid single jet firing out of the tip. After this, the discs
start up from the bottom and work upwards until they are all firing
The sculpture is surrounded by blue light while the very tip flashes
in a constant rhythm like a guiding light in the night. Stanton
Tower has the appearance of a futuristic architectural building
block. It is easy to imagine a future landscape with flying shuttles
surrounding this elegant yet dynamic Tower.
