An impressive installation project which is called the EXOtique have completed designed by the architect PROJECTiONE. This interior installation is designed in Ball State University, Muncie, Indiana, USA. The architect intention for designing this amazing installation is to create a simple, hexagonally based, component system which would act as a lit “drop ceiling” for the space, as the ceiling height would alloww for the quite a bit of variation in the surface. Other than the input surface from Rhino, everything is accomplished in Grasshopper. This is includes all unrolling for the fab, label, patterning, and connections. For the connections itself, there is no hardware is used for it, besides, it is gives the hangers for the lamp cords, cutting costs and allowing the materials to work to each other’s benefit.
Which is causing the materials to bend within the component as opposed to at its edges, the tabs on the styrene lock into the solid acrylic connectors as a rigid sidewall, and after it is being connected, this let all the components meet evenly and created a rigid shell. For the piece, the lit hexagonal panels act as the hanger connections. To hold the socket cable after being thread through the component which is attaches to clips which tied to the waffle grid, a custom acrylic tab is created. The architect is able to complete the project within 6 days; it is through the use of the computational tools, both of the software, and the hardware and good student help. This interior installation will be remaining at the entrance for the time being and it will then migrate to another permanent home within the building.
