Groove Box in Los Angeles, California by Amorphis Architect

June 9th, 2011 by Sanjay Gangal

Article source: Amorphis Architect

This project is a display case for a record collection. Vinyl albums have somewhat of a retro/cult status within contemporary culture that is generated from the unique sound it produces as well as the cover art that defines the packaging. The display case is designed in order to frame the collection and heighten its status as a cultural artifact within the domestic setting.

Groove Box

A generic plywood box is wrapped with an articulated thickened surface, characterized by a sequence of draped effects ranging from pleats in the middle to a quilted-like condition at its ends. The pleats within the top middle portion are intended to perform as display grooves for individual records. The wrapped surface is CNC milled Baltic Birch plywood and finished with “Lexus Starfire White” automotive paint.
