Cursus houtbuigen 10 & 17 maart 2018

Courses by Lizzy

Inschrijven kan hier: https://www.eventbrite.nl/e/tickets-workshop-houtbuigen-41451363143

De cursus geeft een initiatie in de verschillende processen om gebogen houten componenten te maken. Kleine praktische opgaves voorafgegaan door theoretische toelichtingen leren de deelnemers hout te buigen door middel van warmte, stoom, door het gebogen component op te bouwen uit lagen (lamineren) en ook door middel van een paar minder frequente gebruikte methodes (ingesneden MDF, flexibel hout, warmte vervormbare multiplex.) Door deze oefeningen krijgt de deelnemer eveneens zicht op de eigenschappen van een stoomdoos, het maken van mallen en de vacuümpers.

Wat mensen van deze cursus zeggen:

Peter Van der Velden, Deinze
Zeer duidelijke voorbeelden en metaforen. Zeer goed voorbereid.

Boris Landuyt, Gentbrugge
Totaal onbekend deel van de houtbewerking. Fijn om nieuwe zaken op te steken. Tips & tricks van een “pro” zijn steeds verrijkend. Fijn dat iemand met zo’n bagage zijn kennis & kunde wil delen.

Maarten Pauwels, Gent
Zeer vlotte cursus met top voorberieiding. Goed evenwicht theorie/praktijk.

D. C., Otegem
Heel goed, leerijk. Super!!

S. M.,Kortrijk

Renovatieproject te Mechelen

Project by Lizzy

Dit investeringsproject te Mechelen onderging een totale renovatie. Het huis werd volledig gestript, kreeg nieuwe riolering, gas, water en elektriciteit. Het dak werd eveneens volledig vernieuw. Het huis dat reeds jaren leeg stond en in bouwvalige toestand verkeerde kreeg een nieuwe indeling. De werken resulteerde in een mooi lichtrijke en energie zuinige woning. Na de voltooiing van de werken stond de woning amper 3 weken te koop. Hieronder een foto reportage van voor, tijdens, en na de werken.

Buy-Sell project in Mechelen, Belgium

Project by Lizzy

This was an investment project. The house was in a very bad shape. It was stripped to its bare walls and received new sewage, plumbing, insulation, electricity, heating, windows, doors, etc. The central staircase was recuperated together with the floors of 3 sleeping rooms. Everything else has been replaced. Geberit was used for the in-wall plumbing material, a 22mm solid oak floor was installed downstairs and a German build Kulhmann design kitchen was installed. More than 200m2 of insultion achieved an EPC of a 160 kWh/m2year which puts it in the energie effeciency range. Renovation took 8 months. The house was sold in less than 2 weeks when put on the market. Below some before and after shots.

3D printing / Selective Laser syntering

Project by Lizzy

Below you find the project Cobra . The LED desk light was made using Selective Laser Sintering (SLS). This is a rapid prototyping process which builds models up in layers. A laser only sinters the parts that need to be solidified. It is an affordable process to model up prototypes or forms which would be difficult to produce with standard manufacturing processes. SLS builds up your model in Nylon. It results in a fairly strong object which leaves many possibilities for post processing and finishes such as lacquering or metal plating. The dimensions for an SLS build depends on the capacity of the machine that will build it. Make sure you check these dimensions first.
Below the project is explained in a 7 min tutorial.

Tips on installing waste and soil pipes

Article written by Lizzy

Installing domestic drain and soil pipes seem to be an easy job, no water pressures to account for or non-return and other valves to think about and regulation seems to be comprehensible to any construction worker. Just connect your pipes from point A, always go downwards and make sure you end up in the sewage and that’s it. Will it work? …It might. Will it work well? That’s a totally different ballgame. Although sticking some pipes together to drain the water seems fairly simple, a lot can go wrong when drain pipes are not installed the way they should be. Common problems with drain and soil pipes are clogs and smells and in order to avoid those providing sufficient air and keeping your waste flow under control is key.

Who is the man behind your furniture?

Article written by Lizzy

Stating that a piece of production furniture always starts with the designer may have been true some 50 years ago, now however chances are it started in some marketing department. This statement would not only be valid for production furniture but for a large proportion of the production objects sold today. This article hopes to shed some light on the evolution of furniture design.

Japanese boundaries: A different way of perceiving space

Article written by Lizzy

In Japan symbolism, signs, movement, subtle indications or even education can be found as a boundary for space. This may elude the visiting westerner as he is used to the physical barriers which forcefully indicate his course. It does not necessarily mean that the only barriers we westerners recognise are physical, but the sensitivity towards none physical borders is of a different nature compared with the Japanese.
