Pinterest approached Sheet Metal Alchemist with a request to build a community oriented public fixture in their newly acquired building at 651 Brannan St., San Francisco.
Pinterest is a community based on sharing impressions with other users. Users "share their mark" with Pinterest, and others gain inspiration from these ideas. In a similar fashion, Pinterest wanted a piece where visitors to their building could leave their mark on Pinterest in a very direct, physical sense. A Spirograph - an immediately recognizable symbol of play and interactivity was chosen.
Sheet Metal Alchemist was responsible for the engineering, design, fabrication, and installation of the piece.
