The unusual geometry, invisible welds and a shiny surface are only three points, which describe the 45 m high steel mast “Peninsula Spire” at Millennium Square in London. The triangular spire twists 166° around its own axis from the 2.5 m side lengths of the base tapering to down 10 mm side lengths at the top. The internal steel frame and the stainless steel outer shell together weigh 34 to. This highlight on the massive Peninsula Square in front of the O2 Arena is synonymous with the high standards of production and assembly.
