Your inspiration pushes you to take a step further to see what you can achieve if you just try a bit more. Studio Gang, an architectural firm with studio in Chicago has successfully done a a great job with their work, the Maisonette Project that has become the inspiration for artist and designer Benoit Bertrand to put his skills to work and produce a remarkable render of virtual interior design for yet also virtual Chicago loft.
The work was done by Benoit Bertrand using the computer software Autodesk 3ds Max along with V-Ray. The virtual loft was based on a real loft and the virtual interior furnishings did a great job “virtually” complementing the loft. The Maisonette project itself was a project to transform an old ballroom of Ambassador West Hotel and make it into a modern contemporary apartment. The real Maisonette project itself highlighted the malleable qualities and formability of steel.
Formerly, the Autodesk 3ds Max was known as 3D Studio Max. It is a program of 3D computer graphics allowing users to make 3D images, models, and animations. Autodesk Media and Entertainment is the developer and producer of the program. Frequent users of the program are video game developers, TV commercial studios, as well as architectural visualization studios. Occasionally, movie effects and pre-visualization also use the program. As an extension for this, program, Bertrand used V-Ray.
V-Ray is the rendering engine. Chaos Software’s Peter Mitev and Vladimir Koylazov were core developers for the program. The production studio was established in Sofia, Bulgaria in 1997. The V-Ray rendering program is used in both film and video game industries. Architecture industry also has an extensive of the program to make realistic 3D renderings.
