The material he’s describing is Vantablack – the blackest black ever created. It was developed by a company called Surrey NanoSystems (SNS), whose laboratory is housed in a single-storey, pre-fab block in a dreary business park near the port at Newhaven, on Britain’s south coast. Vantablack is made from carbon nanotubes (“Vanta” stands for “vertically aligned nanotube array”). Each tube is just a few nanometres thick and a few hundred nanometres tall – that is, just a few billionths of a metre.

collection, which are by appointment only, are booked into next year. The picture that the younger Six sketched was of an inward-looking father who is trying to preserve a legacy by keeping the world at bay, who comes to realize over time that he also has to do battle with a gregarious and extroverted son who feels that the way to preserve that legacy is precisely by sharing it with the wider world.
