Capita Bobrowski – part of Capita Symonds - recently
completed work on a 120% scale sliced-up sculpture of a classic
1930’s Auto Union Streamliner.
The car, which was designed by renowned sculptor Gerry Judah and
produced by Littlehampton Welding, went on display at the opening
of the £30m West London Audi, a huge multi-storey car showroom near
Capita Bobrowski provided complex 3D modelling on the 750kg
sculpture which is made from powder-coated, laser-cut aluminium
sheet and comprises ninety-three 2mm blades.
Capita Bobrowski also works with Gerry Judah and Littlehampton
Welding on the annual sculpture at the Goodwood Festival of Speed
(which this year also featured a replica Streamliner).
Bruno Postle, Capita Bobrowski, explains: “At one point the
design for this year’s Goodwood sculpture featured a sliced-up
oversized car created with a modified version of the software I
wrote to do the Land Rover ‘rock’ the year before. We never pursued
that idea as it wasn’t suitable for the site, but it was ideal for
hanging in the car showroom.”
