Kinkfab was commissioned by FJMT Architects to produce a physical model for a City of Sydney Design Excellence competition. Project was for a 32 storey commercial building above an existing heritage listed sandstone building which currently houses David Jones.

The Brief from FJMT was to create an interactive and conceptual model which highlighted the proposals unique form and conceptualises how the internal spaces within the building work. The model is composed out of four pieces, all of which magically connect together using industrial strength rare earth magnets, including the CNC milled brass tower form which appears to effortlessly float above the form when the facade is removed.
