Lee Simmons is a British artist and designer, specialising in blurred peripheries - bridging the gap between architecture and art and design.
Cutting Technologies Ltd worked with Lee on his recent project, The Great War Memorial - a sculpture located on London’s Victoria Street next to Westminster City Hall to commemorate council employees who fought and died during World War 1.
The stunning memorial is made up of 82 shards fabricated from Sicilian Carrara marble, which represents each of the employees of Westminster City Council who lost their lives. They were commissioned to engrave the base of the memorial with the names of the council workers who died during the conflict.
The size of the base required large scale laser engraving. Faced with a short time frame to deliver the project, Lee Simmons and his team were impressed with Cutting Technologies prompt communication, high level of efficiency and quick turnaround speed, which enabled them to meet their tight deadline.
