Customer project 10 - Star Ceiling
Britain's leading specialist globe maker, Greaves and Thomas, has opened a café - the Orrery Café in Ryde on the Isle of Wight. The café, in restored premises of Bravinger's Arcade is the first part of a project to establish Britain's first globe museum.
The décor of the café includes a suspended orrery and a fibre optic star ceiling in which the constellations are modelled on characters from Lewis Carroll's classic Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. A celestial globe using the same artwork is also available from the company.
|The café is named for the orrery (a model of the solar system) that is suspended from the ceiling. Click on the image above for a much larger photo showing the fibre optic stars and orrery illuminated.|
Starscape was delighted to be involved in this project as a supplier of optical fibre and technical advice. To learn more about the company's range of attractive globes visit its website at globemakers.com
|This is probably the most ornately decorated star ceiling in the UK.|
