PSP gets all arty

June 5 - PSP is well known as a logistics partner with the ability to transport luxury yachts and motorboats around the world, but recently parked its sea boots and got all arty in central London.

The company's London office has transported pieces of art from Singapore, where they had been on display in the botanical gardens, to London where they are now in position at the Inner Temple Gardens.

Angles of Incidence is a collection of reflective steel pods in various different shapes. They were created by Singaporean artist-architect Randy Chan and British artist Philippa Lawrence as part of a worldwide art exchange programme.

PSP transported the precious pieces of art to the UK by sea freight, packing them into a 40 ft high cube container. The company's staff then oversaw the unloading at Felixstowe and arranged onward transportation to Inner Temple Gardens, where it took a team of eight people to unload the artwork.

Once the pods were on site, PSP's art team worked alongside artist Randy to reassemble the pods, which had been dismantled for transport.

Managing director of the London office, Colin Redman, said: "While many may think of us as a purely marine-focussed logistics company, we transport much more than just boats. We do a lot within the art and architecture worlds, transporting everything from installations like these, to tiny, delicate architects' models."
