Reason for selection: In order to have stainless steel used for the interior and the entrance
section of Heisei Chishinkan of Kyoto National Museum, high designability
to harmonize with the main building was a critical requirement.
As the first step of manufacture, super-flat stainless steel plates were
put through primary surface polishing technique called EGR, then mirror-finished
and finally beads-blasted for gdeep tone mirrorh finish. These processes
have provided an aesthetic appearance befitting the Museum which represents
Japan and also has given an expression to harmonize nicely with Japanese-style
The products were made through technical collaboration of the companies
concerned and excel as materials to contribute to the beauty of the building
displaying our countryfs traditional artistic works.The
adoption of the products has expanded the designability potential of stainless
steel and has impressed many people with its aesthetic features.
