Morse Code room for the largest co-working space in the US, The Idea Foundry, Columbus, OH. Hundreds of Morse code pieces were laser cut, spray painted and applied to the walls of the room.
Designing and manufacturing a large "Waterfall" piece for a largest coworking place in America, Idea Foundry. The final sculpture will be cut out of 3/4 inch plywood. Size 40x60in
Recently, WE LASERS has been given a task to design and complete a few interior spots for Columbus Idea Foundry - the largest co-working space in The Midwest. We've decided to start with the most exciting spot - a phone booth. A space where you can escape into a completely environment different. The Idea for the themed design popped up almost immediately. We started thinking what was the most prominent and versatile way to pass information in the industrial era or even mow. What boosted communication between people and continents and made technological progress almost inevitable. Morse Code ladies and gentlemen. Here's some sketches and tests we laser cut for this exciting project.
Laser cutting in progress.
In this project we were to laser cut regular 12X12 in 4 mm corrugated cardboard boxes into irregular ones. Our client-artist was inspired by chalk marks measuring time. Another proof of versatility of lasers and laser cutting technology.
New big project! We are to design, produce and install a lighting display. It is basically a large (15x5') sculpture piece which will be installed inside of a renovated building in Columbus, Ohio. More details are coming.
Here is another great project and implementation of it. Laser cutting is on of the few tools which can be used in many fields including interior design and furniture design. And it looks like designers from i29 interior architects know the right time and place for it. Undoubtedly, inspired by nature patters those cabinet doors were laser cut and spray painted completing the harmony of a living room.
Søren Jensen, Danish consulting engineering company, definitely can do all three. But "THINK" is probably the most important contributor in this project. You can see how "THINK", being taken for the basis, can change your living environment. Is it a sculpture? Is it a new method? Perhaps, both. Laser cut out of recycled polypropylene sheets PolyShell "is the result of a research question which investigates how ultra-thin sheet materials of almost negligible inherent stiffness can be re-formed into structures capable of enclosing large volumes", authors say.
When we were laser cutting this project for The Dayton Metropolitan Library, designed by Virginia Kistler, we did not realize that it will look so monumental after assembling. Our part in the project was to produce those black intricate silhouettes by laser cutting 1/16 in neoprene rubber. The result ismuch more than impressive!
ALEJANDRA DIAZ DE LEON LASTRAS definitely knows how! She proves that a laser cutter and a great idea can execute almost impossible task - create a whole new environment in a few hours or days. This project shows the power of laser cutting technology as a fabrication tool for architectural spaces.
This was one of those projects where we helped our client to design her project. First, we had to make 3D file for a Canon camera with all the details and buttons and windows using an Autodesk software and our designing muscles. Then using the same program sliced the final shape into a set of layers for laser cutting. Autodesk allows you to play with many options, including type and direction of slicing, number of layers and thickness of the material. Simply playing with those few options you can get quite a different result. We went for a simple vertical stack slicing and 4mm corrugated cardboard for this project. All we had to do after is to laser cut it. The result you can see on the picture.
