3D, the super-tool – and fun, too

February 14, 2009

You may have noticed, if indeed you’ve been around at my site and this blog at all, that I render stuff in virtual 3D a lot.

I find this is, well, a great deal of fun to work with, but also a great tool, both in the design process and when it comes to presenting stuff to other people.

For example, I was charged with designing and building a wall of shelves for a private home – now, this is not the kind of project where you’ll normally see a lot of previz going on but I have a fast 3D pipeline, you see.
So in short order I took some measurements off the room and rendered out some proposals, of which this one was chosen:

notice the clever use of set dressing!

Of course, with my well-done 3D model, it was rather a simple matter of ordering the materials and building the actual wall of shelves in their actual living room – see:

wall IRL
– and notice the even cleverer set dressing now!

The doors, in case you’re wondering, are push-to-open.

Built to last, too – I’m told the children of the house use it as a climbing wall…

Voluptuous form – the Merry M.

February 14, 2009

Some time ago now, I worked for a while as an external design consultant for a furniture factory in Poland called Yask – you’ll (not) know them for building some very hefty oak tables for ILVA, maybe.

But none as hefty as this one…

At the time I would come up with ideas for furniture lines, designs and design changes – mostly those would go through further alterations and either enter the line… or not.

This was different however, as the Merry Monroe went straight from my drawings to the factory floor, and it’s still in production – although not for every home; the legs alone measure some 24 by 24 centimeters, and it’s about as heavy as a piano.

Get yours now – and remember, they may deliver it to your house, but they probably won’t carry it up the stairs…
