The Casinos Austria and Austrian Lotteries Group commissioned Philipp Aduatz for the design and realization of a 3D printed film studio. If you’re a regular reader of 3D ADEPT Media, you may already be familiar with Aduatz’ work. The designer is behind the creation of this 3D printed gradient furniture collection or even this 3D printed chair produced in concrete and in collaboration with Incremental3D, an Austrian service bureau that specializes in concrete 3D printing.
As part of this project, Aduatz, Incremental3D and set designer Dominik Freynschlag worked together, and achieved a total of 10 work steps using a 3D concrete printing process from a special mortar based on white cement.
The wall consists of a total of 60 individual segments, with 6 parts each stacked to form a segment in height. All individual parts are screwed together in each horizontal plane, so the wall can be completely disassembled and is also operationally safe during use. The main part of the lighting system are 14 LED strips inserted horizontally into prefabricated joints, which can be controlled by the RGB colour space in a variety of colours and colour gradients. By replacing the print layers with LED strips of the same thickness, the lighting technology could be perfectly integrated into the design. All LED elements are connected to the rest of the studio lighting via computer-aided control, creating an almost unlimited number of colour combinations.
Due to its material-saving properties, concrete 3D printing is considered a sustainable alternative to conventional concrete construction methods. In addition, no formwork materials are required, so waste is reduced to a minimum. If no reinforcement is used, as is the case here with the film studio, any recycling is further simplified.
Components produced by additive manufacturing with concrete are not only suitable for building construction applications, but also offer completely new creative qualities and possibilities in interior design, particularly in the combination with LED-technology as this project demonstrates.
The wall has a total weight of 3.500 kg. The external dimensions of the wall are: 630 cm width, 330 cm depth, 230 cm height.
