STUDIO ENCLOSURE

second year | spring '17

In this exploration of fabrication and material effect, the task was to design a single studio desk enclosure for one person. The design is intended to be a geometric shell with customizable panels that make up its exteriority.

The process of its fabrication was firstly CNC milling out of MDF sheets each pentagonal frame. Then panels were created through vacuum forming PETG sheets over the frames. When cutout these plastic panels snapped on and off of the frames due to the frame's design. The panels were then sculpted organically via heat gun creating its varied surface in. The bigger idea behind this project is questioning the potential relationship of digital fabrication to that of less-controllable human fabrication.
