 Description of project: “Jaime I Hotel Wall”

Once the design is accepted and completed, the process begins with the MACHINING OF THE CERAMIC PIECE AND GLASS through the high-pressure water-jet technique, which consists in speeding up a thin ultra-pure water blast up to an approximate speed of 2400 km/hour. The jet is cast into the surface to be cut; cad-cam tools are used for movement, which provide high accuracy and versatility of cut shapes.

Glass is cut and subsequently subjected to a FROSTING PROCESS, to be finally put inside a stove in order to stabilize the piece and improve its mechanical features.

This “frosted” glass is capable of screening the light that goes through it, providing uniformity while preventing the backlighting mechanism to be revealed. This type of glass has been used by COARCE in other projects with highly satisfactory results.

The selection of this material took us some research time, as we aimed to obtain an ultra-pure glass which, once lit, would not alter the color of the light.

In this case, light was projected through LED RGB lights, which are typical for its capability of emitting red, green and blue light. These colors vary based on a programming that is pre-set in an electronic control unit; transition from one color to another is not abrupt, but rather controlled in such a way that intermediate colors and shades are produced.

Therefore, any color interference caused by glass impurities would result in an undesired alteration of the RGB-emitted colors.

Once the entire machining process is completed, it is followed by the PIECE ASSEMBLY, including the installation of the LED backlighting system and, subsequently, to its packing and shipping to the worksite, to be placed on the mural.
