Spiral Staircase Leads to Statue of Liberty's Eternal Flame of Enlightenment Centerpiece at Met Gala
Spiral Staircase Leads to Statue of Liberty's Eternal Flame of Enlightenment Centerpiece at Met Gala

When guests walked into the Met Gala’s Great Hall, they were greeted by the Statue of Liberty’s eternal flame of enlightenment at the centerpiece of this year’s ball. Albina bent the 1” pipe framework for the ribbons of a towering spiral staircase leading to the shimmering flame. When our customer received the bends, they had this to say:

"We received the bends and they look great! I appreciate that everything was checked and well labeled before you guys sent it out. It was a pleasure working with you and I hope to do business in the future."

The centerpiece was featured in Vogue Magazine  and a time lapse of the erection can be seen on Instagram.  Below are a few pictures from the fabrication and erection processes.

Thanks to Viva Railings LLC (Photo credit & Glass/Railing Fabricator) we have received some final installation pictures of the circular staircase at the "Trinity Complex", home to American Airlines Headquarters in Fort Worth, Texas. We spiral bent Tube Steel 16″ X 16″ X .625″ WALL A500 GR B bent down to a an 18 foot radius, using our induction heating process to create the spiral stringers for the staircase. In addition to the 16″ square, we produced another set of spiral stringers consisting of Tube Steel 14″ x 6″ x .625″ wall REALLY tight, exposed and bent to a 5′-6″ radius on a 45° pitch. These are the type of bends that ONLY Albina can do! The 1.7 million-square-foot complex, dubbed the “Trinity complex,” consists of four seven-story buildings. It cost nearly $300 million to build and houses over 6,500 employees. There were 10 tower cranes on the project and more than 1,000 construction workers on-site during the peak of the project.
