PRIVACY PANEL

// BRIEF

The 400×400 mm panel created for the laser cutting project is aimed to provide privacy between material storage and the laser cutting area. 24 square panels come together to create a dynamic separation unit. Our given technique was interlocking. In order to create a stable strong surface we looked into strong geometries and light weight structures to hold these geometries.

// REFERENCES for the SURFACE GEOMETRY

Initial Idea: Interlocking geometry with multi directional bends.

 

// REFERENCES for the INTERMEDIATE STRUCTURE

Initial Idea: Branch System

// MATERIALS

Materials for the Facade Units:
-Polypropylene (Final Material)
Intermediate Structure:
– Plywood 3mm (Final Material)
