Benjamin Ryan & Rupert Todd of Ursae Ltd. were approached by DaeWha Kang Design after the architectural practice had earmarked on overseeing a large interior design project for St. Andrew Church Holborn.

The refurbishment included the realisation of a number of bespoke artworks and key statement pieces. Ryan and Todd were commissioned to co-design and manufacture a number of pieces for the Sir Christopher Wren Church, including the churches scared Tabernacle. Designed to appear as though there is a floating box within a box, the piece creates a myriad of reflections and optical illusions when viewed in person. Made by a mixture of hand and machine techniques the Tabernacle is precision piece, that takes pride of place on the churches rear Alter.
