Kinetic Collaborations 

Project Kinetic facade  |  Designer Collaboration between Ned Kahn, Johnson Fain Architects and Kaynemaile  |  Location Los Angeles, USA  |  Photography Fred L'Ami


Kaynemaile isn’t just a manufacturer—we work collaboratively with architects, designers and artists around the world.


For this mixed use development in Los Angeles we collaborated with American artist Ned Kahn to create a unique installation.

Situated at the heart of the Playa Vista complex this 30 metre tall kinetic installation winds itself around the parking garage ramp, helping to connect the streetscape to the surrounding buildings.

The dynamic installation takes advantage of a wind channel from the nearby Pacific Ocean that keeps the ribbons of Kaynemaile-Armour moving, creating a lively counterpoint to the functional nature of the parking structure.
