Three art works, produced by creative director Mari Asada, are going to be exhibited at the entrances of the fashion specialized select stores "HINKARINKA" located on the 3rd to 5th floor in "TOKYU PLAZA GINZA"(grand open on 31 March 2016, at Sukiyabashi intersection). Of the three statues, two are cut and processed by us using a bridge-type 5 axis machine.
They are made with foaming material so we paid great attention in choosing the angles and speeds of the blades in order to prevent the particle of the foaming material from getting stuck in the blades and coming off.
In order to realize the design face with complex 3D curves and straight lines mingled, clever optimization of blades for surface accuracy was essential.
The combination of our most advanced bridge-type 5 axis machine and the machining technology of the operator successfully reproduced the original image presented to us by the creative director.
The 1.5m statues (the one on the 3rd floor for projection mapping, 5th floor decorated with artificial flowers) will be exhibited for a year.
