Chiaroscuro wooden mini-ITX chassis mod

Posted on Sunday, December 21 2008 @ 07:21:03 CET by

Bit Tech published the worklog for Nick Falzone's latest mod, Chiaroscuro, a wooden mini-ITX chassis with a difference. You can check it out over here.
I was looking through an issue of Architectural Record one day and noticed the renderings of the Beijing Digital building which would be the technical centre of the 2008 Beijing Olympics. Immediately I thought to myself “this could be a computer case”, at this point not knowing that I was actually going to build another one. When it came time to build another case, this building came immediately to mind. I showed the renderings of the building to my friend, Belgian architect, and fellow modder, Gert Swolfs and he responded by saying that he actually did the renderings and would be happy to render the case for me. These renderings are shown below.

For the design, I took the “circuit board” design on the building and transferred it onto a 30cm cube. Three sides would contain this design and the other two sides would have a movable fin design. The fins act as a “skin” (excuse the architecture lingo) that could be opened or closed depending on the heat load inside..
