It is constructed of a structural painted steel frame, with underside surfaces covered by a polished copper-colored steel skin.
HK was specified by L’Observatorire International to provide a unique catenary system including LED fixtures, turnbuckle, suspension cable, power cable, and using special woven brass mesh hoods for outdoor illumination of the garden surrounding the Vessel.
