Does stainless steel decorative sphere play an important role in architecture, art and monuments?

Haixu is a Chinese enterprise who specializes in manufacturing and exporting stainless steel products such as stainless steel decorative sphere series and stainless steel sculpture. I have found out that some people have no idea in which stainless steel decorative sphere can be used. Here, I would like to introduce the use of stainless steel sphere in architecture, art and monuments.

First of all, let me briefly introduce what stainless steel is.

Stainless steel sphere as its name called, is made of stainless steel—a composition that prevents the iron from rusting, as well as providing heat-resistant properties. 

When it comes to stainless steel products, tableware is the first goods that come to our minds. In fact, stainless steel products are common in our daily life, such as vehicle (some parts of vehicle are made of stainless steel) and in contact with water. Most of them are used for practicality.

However, the use of stainless steel in building are both practical and aesthetics. For instance, during the Art Deco period, the most famous use of stainless steel is the upper portion of the Chrysler Building, many of which have retained the original appearance for the sake of its durability.

Also, stainless steel can be used in art and in monuments. The aluminium cladding of the spheres and tubes of the Atomium in Brussels was renovated with stainless-steel cladding in 2006.

Unisphere, constructed as the theme symbol of the 1964 New York World’s Fair, is constructed of Type 304L stainless steel as a spherical framework with a diameter of 120 feet (37 m) (New York City)

As we can see above, stainless steel does play an important role in architecture, art and monuments, so does stainless steel decorative sphere and stainless steel sculpture, which are able to give people a sense of comfort and build modern urban style.
