The roots of sheet metal workers can be traced back to craftsmen making hairpin decorations and swordsmiths.
In the past, sheet metal workers were also referred to as metal artists.
The art form involves bending and shaping a sheet of metal as if it was origami.
With half a century of experience, we represent a group
of craftsmen highly skilled at working with various metal materials.
A third generation Bankinya was born with the passion to expand the possibilities of working
with manmade metal materials and create new forms through combining our core
expertise in sheet metal processing with design.

Inorganic materials are often described as cold and lifeless.
On the other hand, these materials are also simple and possess a sense of cool beauty.
Metals are the epitome of inorganic materials.
The beautiful silhouette and finishing comprised of lines and surfaces offer a stunning precision
and quality while a sense of luxury and security can be found in the substantial weight of each piece.
Enjoy the unique supple radiance and formidable beauty of inorganic metals through "Inorganic-Modern metal."

Stainless steel has a somewhat different radiance than gold and silver.
The shine of stainless steel can be adjusted to represent different styles and quality.
Not only is stainless steel a beautiful metal, it is also known for its rust resistance and is hypoallergenic.
Through our very own craftsmanship and expertise in sheet metal work,
we strive to enhance the value of stainless steel material and bring it closer to everyone's daily lives
with the products we create at the third generation Bankinya.
