thesWMF0.jpg (8097 bytes) The 4? panels have a 4? wide by 2? deep relief at all intersections of wall, floor and ceiling planes. In addition to the further dematerialization of the room, this detail allows for physical connectors (objects), such as power or data outlets, to be hidden in the relief behind the 2? overlap of the panel. The relief is a glorified bus duct that can provide physical connections anywhere in the room (such as to a laptop or appliance). This bus duct is also the data and power line for the systems embedded in the room (speakers, LCD monitors, radiant heat control, sensors, and lighting). This provides a backbone for the computerized integration of all systems.
