KIKUKAWA was featured in an article on the ArchDaily website regarding Bloomberg’s new European headquarters in London.
ArchDaily is a website that provides architectural news, project information and other related articles for architects and designers.
The article features the new European Bloomberg headquarters in London, highlighting the outstanding standards of sustainability of the building and the design which pays homage to the history of the site.
In collaboration with the designers, contractors and other manufacturers, Kikukawa contributed to the project through the fabrication of various bronze products that exhibit our metal craftsmanship.
From the series of large-scale bronze façade fins to the interior bronze ramps, roughly 43,397㎡ of bronze was used for this project. The bespoke shapes were created by combining cutting-edge metal-crafting technology, such as FSW (Friction Stir Welding) and fiber laser welding, and traditional craftsmanship, such as the FURUMI (sulfurized) finish.
