Laser-cut screens as stair balustrades

The architect chose to run the stair balustrading full-height and up through all the floors of this building to achieve a dramatic effect. This type of laser-cut screening can be used as decorative panels at a lower height for a lower cost option.

PVD – a high-quality substitute for bronze

This screen pattern was inspired by the hey-days of glamorous and intricate elevator design. This was created with the architect using PVD colored stainless steel as it can be manipulated into shape unlike bronze which often flakes and cracks when folded.
