The unique exterior of the chapel is made from some of the world’s largest stainless steel panels. The ultra-large panels, measuring 18.5 m long and between 600 and 1,500 mm wide, all differ slightly, in their twisted geometry.
In order to turn the concept of the world-renowned architect, I.M. Pei, into reality, we took on difficult challenges such as machine cutting, surface finishing, and radial edge cutting, enabling the architectural plans to be realized to a high level of precision.
The chandelier in the interior of the chapel is a 12 m diameter ring with a diamond-shaped profile, suspended at three points using an unusual suspension system.
