The work "Bronze Flow 2" was realised using the new plywood, bronze, fire and ash technique that Jaana Partanen and Heikki Lamusuo, together with artist-founders, developed in 2003 and 2004. The two-piece work is a permanent part of the building's architecture. The first part is situated on the second floor of the cinema centre, in the far wall of the balcony. The art piece is plywood that has been worked into a form, and the surface is solidified bronze. The bronze flows like lava down a soft, dark, furrowed plywood surface. The second part of the piece is a plywood slab bench that has undergone the long process of metamorphosis through fire and ash.

We think that more important than flexibility for the creative collaboration is adaptability.
The ability to tell the same story even when the amount of pages in the book changes. With the knowledge collected having completed hundreds of small and large projects we can deduce that even though we are very proud of what we have accomplished the merit for our best work goes to our clients. They have shared our point of view that we only succeed because we share the same vision and dream. We design spaces, buildings and environments that are comfortable to live and work, pleasant to the eye and sustainable. We are creative design and architectural group, we want to create an inclusive world all around us - Piece by Piece.
