The Veil, London

Giles Miller Studio has created The Veil, a 17-metre solid brass sculpture suspended across the first floor of a listed London building, that allows light in and enables occupants to see out, while protecting their privacy by blocking the view in from the double height reception below.

The ‘architectural artwork’ is the largest indoor installation that Giles Miller Studio has produced in the UK, and forms part of the studio’s ongoing experimental enquiry into how surfaces can define the spaces they inhabit.
