The VX-TURBINE pendant is a fully functioning, tri-blade, 30-part turbine assembly. The study of complex movement and airflow analysis combines intricate form and sculpted surfacing to push the boundaries of machining to new heights. The introduction of "live" 5-axis machining and custom-made cutting tools allow the three turbine blades to be gracefully carved from G5 Military Spec. aerospace-grade titanium. As air accelerates through the specifically designed front-intake, the three turbines (mounted on six high-speed precision bearings) spool-up and come to life, providing a direct insight into the inner-workings of air travel. A limited release of Only 15 of these exquisitely crafted examples of mechanical sculpture in motion will be made for sale worldwide. Serial numbered #01-#15. The VX-Turbine has a suicide number of 15.
