In the previous part of this blog entry we gave the background to this design project. The design process progresses through a number of revisions based on the design brief. During the design brainstorming process we look for additional functionality. The objective is to get three functions or uses to any one item. That could be fixing, holding or a specific use.
80” Tri-Screen - Design 2
So the rear section of the base could be more functional and stylish. An enclosure for a PC plus PS3‘s or Xbox’s were considered. This would tidy the inter system cabling plus add a section for a heavier base. The cantilevered weight of the screens required more support directly under the fulcrum point. Hence the support struts were changed to arch over to this moment point. This missed one element as to how to integrate two high end front speakers.
- Used our signature round tube.
- Now had a place as a system enclosure.
- The forces were spread better.
- The rear support mechanism was simplified.
