In The Fold
This artwork entitled “In the Fold” was designed by renowned artist, Norie Sato, for the new Viamonte at Walnut Creek Senior Living Center in California. Zahner was brought on early in the design phase and provided design assist, engineering, and fabrication services for this project. The fence is over 62 feet long, and over 7 feet tall at each peak. Inspired by the art of origami, the fence is comprised of dual-sided "Frost White" anodized aluminum and dual-sided Zahner Solanum™ weathering steel panels that are alternately folded to provide depth and an intricate profile. The branches pattern in the aluminum panels was waterjet cut while the leaves pattern on the Solanum panels was created using our ImageWall® custom-perforation technology.
