The process of creating the DeskSpace Lunar Surface involves a lengthy process of casting, curing, finishing and CNC machining. Our craftsmen then carefully clean up the intricate lunar surface and then assemble each piece. The process may be lengthy, but we know that perfection only comes with time.
• We create a detailed 3D CAD model using NASA data from the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter.
• We make 1:1 masters in tool grade steel for both the 100mm desktop and 180mm wall versions.
• Moulds are then made from the master which will be used to cast each piece, concrete is mixed in small batches from a combination of Portland cement and aggregates to carefully control the amount of bubbles produced.
