In their ‘Burning metal project’, Hamanishi DESIGN has made the natural process artistic. Executing pyrography to cause titanium to oxidize, the team employs computer aided motors to control the height and rotation of conscientiously designed metal products, then burns them with a piezo gas torch to stimulate deep gradient colors to surface.

Different flame temperatures provoke the titanium to shine in cobalt blues and cosmic purples. With a change in heat, as well as with length of contact, designs that will never fade are imprinted into the furnishings surface.
