From their website it really appears that the company had a store of unused expertise that simply exploded to life for this work of art. I have gone through their entire list of merchandise and didn't find anything that required the great level of customization and perfection in finish shown here. I imagine that someone there has a strong reputation and a personal contact convinced the artist to have the construction done there.

I'd love to know the real story! Perhaps Linde has insights from previous private commissions.
