Boson Machines, an extrusion 3D printer manufacturer and 3D printing service in Mumbai, India, completed the 20 feet tall programmable, LED, wave-like modular facade of the Hybec Lighting Store, also in Mumbai, by 3D printing 6,000 light bulbs. Spectacular and original, modular 3D printed facades are sort of becoming a thing, as we just reported on another similarly huge project in Dubai.
The enormous work required 2 months and a total of 18,000 hours of printing on Boson Machines’ Graviton filament extrusion systems. The concept was to create unique bulbs with a brain-like aesthetic using PET. Using LED lighting the bulbs change color and create truly spectacular effects. The final result is quite stunning.
First envisioned in 2016 and co-founded a year later by Arjun Panchal, Boson Machines is a 3D printer manufacturer established in the suburbs of Mumbai. Built-in a two-story building, the very first model, Graviton Mark-1 went on sale in December 2017. Since then, the company has expanded their lineup to suit the needs of a varied clientele.
Current clients include Hybec, a lighting specialist with a dedicated and passionate team of over 100 personnel, aiming to gain a market-leading position within the next 8 Years. Hybec is constantly introducing innovative products and lighting concepts and solutions to fulfill customer requirements and market demands. Specializing in lighting for the Indian market, the company sells over 1000 lighting products designed for a wide range of lighting applications and target markets for indoor and outdoor applications for residential and commercial establishments. The huge 3D printed facade is sure to shine a light on the company’s uniqueness.
The Hybec light flagship store concept and design was created by Ar. Nuru Karim (Instagram: @nurukarim), founder and principal at architectural firm NUDES, and his team.
