Client: Helexpro|Tetragon
Installation designers: Y.Adilenidou|E.Sopeoglou|S.Vyzoviti|C.Spilioti
Description: Technical consultancy | CNC cutting of bespoke steel components

This exhibition presented the work of international experimental architects exploring digital design and fabrication technologies. The installation followed a similar spirit, making use of digital design tools and fabricated in a seamless digital design-to-production workflow. The steel sheets where free-form bent in order to find their own structural stability and thus a steel support structure was redundant.

Client: Private
Description: Design and fabrication | CNC cutting of bespoke steel components | CNC bending of steel cladding element

METALSO designed and fabricated this unique interior design component by cutting and folding steel sheets. The sheets were folded to find structural stability and result in an overall light-weight decorative component without a support structure. The design resembles a fabric draped over the fireplace. The folding process involved unique non-parallel bends, which result in stunning light-and-shadow effects, using the capabilities of cutting-edge CNC machninery.
