In recent times corten steel has become a buzzword in the architecture/design community ranging from using the magical material to create furniture in public spaces to animal sculptures, privacy screens and all sorts of urban art. This post touches on the most common applications we see on a regular basis.
It is interesting how sometimes things in life are hidden behind the scenes and corten steel is one of them: Most people don’t know that the reason why we can order products online and receive them the next day is due to exceptional logistics – everything from where they’re manufactured to when they’re delivered to us – and a big part of that process involves corten steel.
From shipping containers that transport products across continents to bridges, rail cars and other pieces of the logistics puzzle, corten steel plays an integral role. And that’s one of the most common applications of corten steel today.
Additionally, corten steel has been widely adopted in the design world with a variety of art/sculptures being crafted in it. This is a new phenomenon that’s taking off and we are on the cusp of what’s possible, which is exciting.
Have a vision to create something special using corten steel? Let’s connect and brainstorm.
