Stainless steel is an very attractive and durable material that lends itself to various uses. Stainless steel is available in various finishes including brushed, polished and etched. Stainless steel can be extruded and woven into semi-transparent mesh screens or mirror finished to reflect context. This submission details the exploration of a single material, stainless steel. It tracks the route that The Matrix has traveled with this material in the last ten years: from the conceptualization, to the production of documentation and the realization of a variety of objects – Building components, Furniture, Cladding as well as Musical instruments, Decoration relief panels, Intricate mobile candelabras and Art objects. Africa displays many faces, many crafts and many possibilities much like stainless steel.
