Manufacturing Meets Design at Tent London

A unique collaboration between a Yorkshire manufacturer and designer sees laser technology take centre stage at one of the world’s biggest design shows in September.

The partnership between Cutting Technologies and Kyle Wilkinson will culminate with an exhibition at Tent London.

The exhibition will showcase the capabilities of lasers, with Cutting Technologies taking the opportunity to display its bespoke range of interior and exterior decorative screens.

On the stand, Kyle will be launching The First Edition – a beautiful range of furniture and lighting which all incorporate an aspect of laser cutting.

Tent London is part of the wider London Design Festival – one of the biggest design events in the world.

Jane Robinson, director of Cutting Technologies said: “We’ve worked with Kyle across a range of creative projects throughout the years and it’s great that we’re able to team up again for Tent.

“This is a great platform to showcase what can be achieved with lasers and combining our equipment with Kyle’s designs proves the only limit is one’s imagination!”

Kyle Wilkinson added: “It’s always great to work with the team at Cut Tec. Their engineering knowledge allowed me full creative freedom to produce my new range of furniture and lighting as well as a few new designs for Cut Tec’s screens.

“Together I think we’ve produced something exciting for visitors at Tent London to enjoy.”

The exhibition runs from September 21 – 24. Cutting Technologies and Kyle Wilkinson will be on stand D06, hall T1 at Old Truman Brewery, London, E1 6QR.
