- Powder Coated Steel - Standard
This cellular structure invented by Arktura for Frameworks, Dallas, builds on specialized algorithms and new manufacturing strategies developed for earlier Solutions Studio projects and represents a dynamic leap forward in manufacturing and design capabilities. We achieved the kiosk’s complex double curvature through uniquely formed planar surfaces, laser cut and sculpted on an eighteen-axis metal forming machine, and assembled with a total of 9,500 rivets through 14,000 points of alignment. The cell apertures vary in size, allowing gradations in light to accentuate the display areas, while the tapered form organically defines a point-of-sale location. Our exceptionally precise execution and comprehensive planning allowed this self-supporting kiosk to be prefabricated off site, shipped as a system and assembled in a matter of days.
