The DEL-i enclosure. A must for makers.

i-ntroducing: the DEL-i enclosure

DEL-i is a new elegant and highly functional enclosure for single-board computers, such as Raspberry Pi and Arduino, being introduced by the ELL-i co-operative. It is designed by the renowned Finnish lighting, interior and industrial designer, Jukka Korpihete. The DEL-i does more than just enclose the hardware and hide the wiring. It is also an elegant piece of design, much more than your average box.

For innovative solutions

The DEL-i enclosure can house up to 5 stacked boards, enabling innovative designs and solutions. The boards are easy to fit in and stack. The enclosure comes with magnets that attach snugly to a robust, metallic base, leaving room for free wiring and ventilation.
The metallic base has an acrylic plate attached. When the enclosure is equipped with LED lights, the acrylic plate will light up, creating an enchanting atmosphere.

With precision manufacturing out of the Finnish forest

The enclosure will be manufactured with injection moulding out of recyclable, sustainable composite that combines clean polymers and pulp out of Finnish wood. The material is non-toxic and durable.  It has been road tested in thousands of floor boards in all parts of the world.  The material can be safely drilled, sawed and carved, if necessary.

From an interior design view, the elegant bone white enclosure fits even the most stylish of homes, yours included.

What Can You Make With It

Well — use it for whatever you cannot or do not want to hide behind your TV, books, or in a drawer. For anything you need or want to remain in view. The enclosure is large enough for a RasPi, or an Arduino with four to five shields on the top, for example. A MythTV box maybe? Internet radio? Speaking weather station? Speaking clock? Theremin?

While the enclosure material is too opaque to be used as a lamp, you can place a LED in a hole in the base plate to illuminate the acrylic disc for a cool effect light, or just to have a neat way of displaying indicator lights.
