LUMINA by Design_Master - scratch built acrylic case mod

Posted on Saturday, December 15 2007 @ 07:00:16 CET by

Bit Tech have just published the worklog for Luciano Cezimbra's LUMINA scratch built acrylic case mod.
"I discovered the art of modding two years ago and I started to test many materials, including acrylic. Immediately, I was impressed with its strength, its incomparable luminous reaction and moulding capacity, allowing me to create pieces of nearly any size or shape. It was enough to convince me that acrylic was the best choice for my future projects.

Obviously, to reach the desired technical level, I had to perfect the skill of cutting, paring, polishing and moulding. I learned these by visiting the factory installations of a friend of mine, who is my acrylic supplier. Through the observation of big machines, I learned that I could recreate the same effect (in reduced scale) by using inventive manual techniques. This is my way: To be able to reach a perfect execution level that looks nearly manufactured, but by using only the usual manual tools, specific methodology, simple procedures…and a bit of craftsmanship, of course.

I always loved clean and bold projects, mainly the architectural building ones. This is my style, and LUMINA was not different. I sought to keep away from “aquarium look” that the most of Plexiglas projects follow, by inventing a new design and lighter structure. Undoubtedly, the engineering helped me to plan the project – to fix the alignment of some pieces and to find a solution for little building issues, such as adjusting the horizontal inclination angles of the two hinged doors to prevent them from being jammed."
