Submission 01
Linear Cuts Kerfing_pattern

Material: foil of wood
Technique: laser cutting

The concept of this proposal is to work with a microperforations_pattern , or better “micro-cuts pattern”, on a wooden panel (x, y) tryng to improve the flexibility of this surface, through an assial cut of the wooden material focus of the research.


The used method, was the kerfing one, applied on the panel in exam through the use of laser cutting.

In order to achieve the goal  of the “material performances’  improving”, work has been done on the surface through a simple linear pattern, composed by a sequences of micro-perforations of the same.
The weaving of this pattern is connected and enhanced using an attractor point, able to crate an intensification of the cuts, in relation with their mutual position with this one, which is considered as a polarity.

In this way is created a variable puncture-pattern that underlined, in the different runs performed, the ability to confer, to the foil of wood in exam, a considerable addition of flexibility, comparable to more than 30% of its normal resistance condition.


Working evenly and on the entire surface even though with different intensity; has emerged as distributed holes’ density breaking the axial structure of the plot in question, can be able to transform the rigid nature of the material’s surface in a flexible one, adaptable to various new performances.


Thinking about this, in a larger scale, could be able to become an example of use’s possibilities of the material, also subject to such curvatures in relation to the clumping of the plot.
