Twisted Display Plinth- PATA LAB Architecture

August 20, 2014


Twisted Display Plinth

Patalab have designed a display plinth that can be adjusted in height and tilted from 0 – 90 degrees.

The capacity for reconfiguration is achieved by cutting the plinth along a 45 degree plane that acts as a joint allowing the upper part to slide along the cut plane for height adjustment, or, tilting displays into more favourable presentation angles.

This mechanical plinth thus provides higher levels of flexibility for the exhibition of objects than static ones.

Assembled in groups of two or more the plinth’s individual configurations can add to a sense of communication amongst the displays themselves.

In terms of construction, the plinth is a straightforward wireframe box composed of 8mm square steel rods and metal sheets for top, bottom and cut planes.  A butterfly nut is secretly positioned underneath the 45 degree cut plane to allow adjustment of the plinth configurations. Other materials such as brass, chromed steel or polycarbonate engineered plastic are currently investigated for line production.
