An Art Deco Fireplace

今回の3Dモデルは暖炉です。実物のアンティーク暖炉を見てShade 12(パストレとラジオシティ)にてモデリングしてみました。暖炉といえば、内部はレンガ張りが多いのですが、最近、ガス暖炉には熱交換器を用いて熱だけを取り出し、炎をガラス窓から見るタイプが出場しました。最新型のを見て「カッコイイなあ」と思ったので作ってみました。1930年代のアンティークな前飾りと意外な組み合わせですが^^。今回は炎の部分に画像を貼ったのですが、時間があればもっとリアルにモデリングしてみたいです。

One day I was searching for Art Deco furnishings and found this gorgeous, genuine 1930s, antique mahogany fireplace mantel from c20fireplaces.co.uk.

Isn’t it beautiful? The seller describes it as:

“An original early 1930s Art Deco Fireplace Mantel removed from a house in South London.
It has a “High Deco” star-burst fan radiating from a central block and an extraordinary double shelf stepping back to the legs.

The block feet have radiating folds ascending to the top of the opening and the mantel has elevated castellations with diminishing blocks running down.” – from c20fireplaces.co.uk

Instead of a classic brick or tiled insert I went with a more contemporary one. These days the gas closed hearth, vent-free fireplace is becoming the “in” thing so I thought I’d try modeling something similar. Here are some contemporary, inspiring fireplaces:

I couldn’t resist modeling the mantel and adding a cool new insert! Here’s how it turned out:

I changed the original mahogany material to look more like blonde oak, though I might be changing it again to fit the hotel room it will be put in. I used black granite for the surround, and made a brushed silver metal alloy texture with hairline pattern for the opening. The result is this:

The fire ribbon is an image (yes, cheating!) but I hope to change it to a more realistic modeled fire one of these days.

I added a black lacquered pedestal and voila! Our Art Deco-meets-New (Hot) Kid on the Block fireplace is complete.

Modeled and rendered with Shade 12 (Path tracing with radiosity).
