At Kikukawa, we provide solutions for exterior constructions (that look like signage) and monument works.
The following pictures are the exterior of a kindergarten, coloured by the 51 Hiragana (Japanese) letters. Each letter is roughly 400mm by 400mm, laser cut from a 3mm thick stainless steel sheet. The letters are composed of a base and the coloured front, with the connecting joints ranging in height from 50mm, 100mm or 200mm. Placed strategically, the letters signify the branches of a tree.
The exterior letter, its shadow, and the base create a beautifully designed contrast.
The joints needed to be finished carefully for aesthetics, while also having the necessary strength. The panels are designed so that the assembled signage would fulfill both requirements.
The letters are made of 47 unique colours. The panels were quality controlled within the Kikukawa factory from the design stage to the final installation, thus fulfilling the requirements of our clients and exceeding their expectations.
For any metal constructions, or metal designs and metallic expressions, please consult us.
*Kikukawa has built a new facility that allows us to prepare the surface of the aluminium sheets prior to the paint coating process in January 2019.
