Ikigai is the convergence of one’s personal passions, beliefs, values and vocation. The concept of this case, Ikigai, was simple: combine my love of traditional Japanese woodworking techniques and design sensibilities with modern woodworking techniques to create a one-of-a-kind computer case. The case itself features traditionally made Japanese Kumiko designs from unfinished Sitka Spruce, contrasted by a Wenge outer shell with hand sawn dovetails, and an interior made out of primarily acrylic and aluminum and Wenge accents. I made a custom distribution plate, also acting as a pump top and reservoir. I hid most of the wiring in this plate, creating a very clean aesthetic. I made Wenge plates and small parts to maintain continuity and add details to bring the case together. Each part was made deliberately and in-house to create a complete custom case from top to bottom.
