The Brief Hassell studio presented a design concept which employed unusually thick stainless steel sheet as the principle material, posing a manufacturing challenge.
Our task was to deliver furniture that met the builder’s budget while delivering the aesthetic objective of the designer.
Our Solution The risk of stainless steel warpage from laser cutting, the technique stipulated in the client brief, was reduced by the use, instead, of water cutting. This provided a cleaner cut and much neater overall appearance.
Large format items, such as the seating podiums, were modularised to facilitate construction, delivery and installation.
Additionally, we created a system for handling and installing granite to reduce the risk of damage to the pristine stone surfaces.
