Twist gate and railing
The twist gate and railing has a clean, modern feel and uses some of the building blocks of forged metalwork within its design.
Hot punched holes with the signature ‘swelling’ connect each of the vertical bars. These bars are in turn twisted through 90 degrees and hot riveted onto a bottom rail, giving an incredibly strong railing and gate.
The twist detailing enables the design to change as its viewed from different perspectives. The metalwork has been left in a raw galvanised finish to echo other existing details in the clients house.
The design manages to strike the balance between being both materially dense and having a lightness of touch, this is helped by using the bars on edge.
