Twisting is a metalwork that elevates ready-made materials to implement various designs.
At Kikukawa, we are able to twist flat-bars, pipes and extruded materials of steel, stainless steel, aluminium, and bronze.
Here, we introduce two projects that employed twisted materials as its interior and exterior.
The first project, Nebuta Museum Wa Rasse, is one that used red painted twisted steel as its facade.
The 730 pieces of steel flat-bars are 9mm thick, 300mm wide and 12,000mm long. Having over 220 types of these twisting details, Kikukawa conducted numerous experiments to establish twisting and 3-dimensional metal crafting technology.
Next is a project that played with various twisting details for a decorative interior.
To the left is a checkered pattern implemented by employing twisting at different pitches. To the right, is a design that plays with alternating colour, implemented by painting one side of the metal bar.
Twisted metals are used as louvers, fences, gates, ramps, and partitions for its high versatility in design. For fabrication feasibility, more details or consultation, please do not hesitate to contact us.
