Metal Finishes

A new finish was developed for the elevator tower of an Art Deco style building; a former Prince Asaka residence turned national cultural property. The 3mm thick panels, each roughly 3240mm(W) by 1330mm(L), are finished with vibration finish and silver anodization. The gentle yet metallic reflection as visualized by the architects were implemented with this bespoke finish.
