designer's own words:Concept: The concept of the ice wall is to create a wall system/ room screen that is flexible to furnish a space with. The shape has a folded geometry, with a cut-out pattern, so the surface appears faceted. When the wall is lit from behind, the pattern will appear as ‘cracks’ in the material, and make the shape seem like a light surface. The ice wall can be used for example as temporary or flexible fitting rooms in stores, or to create a more personal sitting area in hotels or restaurants. By putting several ice walls together, you can create different spacial shapes, and divide large spaces into smaller and more enclosed spaces. Pattern: The pattern is created to appear occasional / random, though following a rhythm. When the lines cross the fold, they appear more three dimensional, because of the perspective. I suggest light colours for the ice wall. like pearl grey, sea grass or beach grass, depending on a material test, light test and a mock up. It was in my intention to create a pattern that is clean, and with no style reference. Both to keep it close to my inspiration - frozen water - and to create a interior shape / furniture that will last longer than one season. The process of making: The ice wall is made of 1 1/2 sheets of corian, 12 mm, cut in the correct height - 150 cm. The three pieces are now seamed/glued together (see drawing of material use). Then the pattern is cut out, using a CNC router technique, making the light possible to shine ambient through the wall, where the material is removed. Last, the corian sheet is put in a (plywood) mould, heated and shaped to the right angels (see plan and elevation) withe thermoforming technique. After the cooling the surface is buffed to get a semi-matt finish. The ice wall is now a flexible, spatial furniture that allows ambient light to shine through!
