Show-stopping fabrication from Inplas
Music lovers Inplas Fabrications were commissioned to work on a dream project when asked to produce a custom designed, clear Perspex® acrylic mixing desk for world famous DJ Dimension.
The unique custom system brought together high end acrylic fabrication with state of the art electronics. The unique mixing controller had to incorporated nine ‘instruments’ within the system.
Producing a clear product with optically clear perfect joints required precision fabrication from Inplas making use of CNC machining, laser cutting and engraving processes. Combining clear Perspex® acrylic sheets in 5mm, 6mm, 8mm, 15mm and 25mm thicknesses, the finished product was brought together using delicate UV bonding to create crystal clear joints.
Inplas MD Trevor Smith explains “this was a dream project for our team. Dimension had a concept of how he wanted his new show to look – including a centre piece that nobody else has ever seen. Our team of craftspeople were able to turn this vision into reality, working with the Dimension design team and sound technicians to produce a truly unique work of art sturdy enough to tour the world."
It formed the centrepiece of the DJ’s announcement of his new Dimension Live1.0 show teased on social media:
Weighing in at 100Kg, it comprises a hammer-weighted keyboard, nine custom-made instruments with 162 switches and faders for full control over the live mixing and music.
