Ryuji Nakamura does great things with steel, like the ‘blossom’ paper they recently featured.

Ryuji Nakamura’s ‘blossom’ design is cut so that steel naturally curls, making a 3D effect on the wall when all the metal flowers bend into position. The ‘blossom’ design is a great example of harder femininity - using steel for style!
