Zahner was brought in by the architects to create the perforated weathering steel vertical panels, surfaced in Preweathered Solanum™ Steel, a Zahner product designed for architectural projects requiring a stable finish and patina with minimal staining of adjacent surfaces.

Time-lapse of the mockup being installed for the client visit at the Zahner Headquarters. The mockup was produced to test the subtle curvature of the panels, and to test the durability and stability of the pre-weathered steel surface.
