Intriguing images from Europa

Robert Sollis of graphic design duo Europa and illustrator Peter Nencini are collaborating to deliver one of the main artist commissions of Market Town. They are experimenting with the possibility of creating a new visual identity for Loughborough, using objects that have been manufactured or traded in the town. In doing so, they are working with several local manufacturers, institutions, and businesses, and undertaking research visits to learn more about Loughborough past and present. These are some of the fascinating images from their latest visit, all courtesy of Peter Nencini.

Do you recognise any of the objects? Do you know that purpose they serve? Do any of them represent what Loughborough means to you?
