Up-to-date report from one of our students!
Course: Interior Design
Program: One Year Course
Period: Sep. 3, 2018 - Apr. 26, 2019
Image #1: We had a lecture of acrylic, metal, and textile on this Tuesday. Those materials are quite important to build furniture and lighting fixtures because they have variety in design and situation wise.
Image #3~6: Those materials are metals to be available for any interior design pieces. Image #3&4 are aluminium which is quite light and flexible material in metals. The piece in the pictures are window flams.
The metal in the image #5 is steels which are already rusted but still available if you polish them. Steels are normally used for construction or support since they are tough. Also, those steel is called inox steel.
On the other hand, the steel in the image #6 is called Harmonic steel.
Image #7&8: This textile is called Alcantara which is microfiber, and the touch is like a leather but it’s fake. This material is used for shoes, bags, and chairs. It has fire resistance and waterproof.
Image #9~11: Those materials are acrylic plates. Acrylics are normally melted and squeeze into a shape, then add colors into it. However, those acrylic plates in the Image 9 to 11 are made into different process. Acrylic plates sandwich some materials like cottons, hemps, and fabrics and press them with the plates. As you can see the side image at # 11, There are some materials between plates.
Image #12-14: The materials in the Image #12 and 13 are the acrylic plate samples. Acrylics are quite useful materials for furniture, interior decoration pieces, and lighting fixtures. Those look similar to glass but they are lighter and more reasonable. As you can see in the Image #14, Acrylic is also easy to cut. It was cut by a leaser.
