While Kikukawa specializes in bespoke metal constructions, we also accommodate artistic monuments or interior construction for exhibits and galleries. Today, we introduce such example – an exhibit hosted by Japan House*, Prototyping in Tokyo.
This exhibit showcases Professor Shunji Yamanaka’s design and engineering works through his development of cutting-edge prototypes.
The design concept of the exhibition space is “picture scrolls.”
To contextualize this, designer Motosuke Mandai envisioned a space filled with floating picture scrolls.
The key to implementing this design was in the realisation of picture scrolls. The “picture scrolls” are fabricated with paint coated steel sheets and supported by wires and legs in various places.
The 3.2mm steel metal sheets, painted white with acrylic resin, are supported by 8mm diameter stainless steel rods and 19mm diameter silver painted round pipes.
This exhibit will tour Japan House galleries worldwide, from Sao Paulo to Los Angeles to London.
At Kikukawa, we accommodate interiors, interior construction, and decorative hardware by applying our expertise and know-how built through bespoke metal architectural constructions.
*Japan House – a project supported by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan in hopes to nurture deeper understanding and appreciation of Japan by introducing Japan, its culture, and its charms.
