Nimble Systems designs and manufacturers its own line of high end modern furniture and lighting. Stay tuned for further updates. We have some very sleek pieces that we are putting the finishing touches to.
Using a variety of cutting edge techniques, we are able to provide precision historic restoration services. We can design and produce load bearing masonry units with integral colours, accurate patinas and embedded anchoring systems.
Chris Shannon is the artisan responsible for the stunning creations at Nimble systems. All of Nimble’s creations are cast using a substance called Ductal Ultra High Performance Concrete (UHPC) made by Lafarge.
Chris has been working with Ductal over the last 19 years and has become quite familiar with its unique properties. Christopher’s innovations are taking this material to previously unimagined areas. For example, Nimble Systems was pleased to work with Delta Faucet’s Lead Industrial Designer TJ Eads and R&D Engineer Scot Rosko to create the world’s first fully compliant and functional concrete faucet, the Brizo Vettis Faucet.
Thanks to following his passions, Chris is creating unique works of art using an interesting medium and genuinely enjoying his time doing it.
