We manufactured the exterior of the Tokyu Theater orb in the upper floors of the new Shibuya Hikarie, built as part of the Shibuya Station area redevelopment project.
In creating the round ceiling on the exterior of the theater we radically curved the extruded aluminium sections that produce the massive three-dimensional sphere, offsetting their angles in three dimensions to produce the three dimensional curved surface.
We also created the backing which allowed the aluminium sections to be installed at different angles and used our ingenuity in various techniques, such as the method used to mount the decorative louvers.
