• IDS2015 @Studio North

    Thank you to all attendees that stopped by our booth. There was a lot going on in our little space between beautiful images of projects by BLDG Workshop, our current upholstery offerings and collab labour of love, the Bunkie Co. Without a doubt, 2015 is going to be an exciting year for Canadian companies with innovative ideas.

  • Coude Mesh Lounge @ IDS Prototype

    Aaron Duke and I have been long time collaborators on furniture projects for office furniture companies. We’ve always wanted to work on an experimental concept between contract and residential  realms. The Coude (pronounced “cood”) is a blend of Japanese and Scandinavian design sensibilities. It has a poised and graceful stance with a bit of quirkiness to it’s proportions. We meant it to be light in scale, weight and material use.

    It is currently only a prototype but some discussion has come about a limited production run.

    See the unveiling at the Interior Design Show this week in the prototype exhibit.

  • The Bunkie hits Wired UK

    It was a pleasant surprise when my colleague Nathan forwarded over an article of our Bunkie yesterday. It was featured in the November issue of Wired Magazine UK alongside some heavy hitters in the prefab small home segment. We’re finding a lot of interest with this product overseas due to their existing space constraints and general acceptance for smaller square footage.

  • CDR Interview

    I had a chance to speak with Todd Falkowski on a few occasions and answer some questions about 608, Bunkie.co and future projects. Have a read here.

  • Bunkies at Bonnaroo!

    If you haven’t seen much action on my blog in the past year, it’s because I’ve been working like mad to get our start up digital fabrication project called BunkieCo. off the ground. We finished installing 5 Monarch Bunkies for Redbull music academy at the world renowned Bonnaroo music festival. I have to say, this was the most difficult project I have ever taken on. I developed the furniture style construction set to fit together easily and quickly with a crew of 4 people in 2 days (each). In the end, it was very successful and we’re excited to hear feedback from performers who will be recording fresh tracks in your micro studios. See progress video here.

  • New Stand-up Arcade machine in the works

    I’ve been meaning to post this project for a while. This is the version 2.0 of my original arcade project . What I’ve done this time is reduce the material consumption while maintaining the retro authenticity in shape/profile. Traditional stand-up arcade units are big, bulky and super heavy. They are expensive to ship and typically not formatted to suit a small space.

    This LCD powered arcade runs emulator software that allows the user to play all kinds of games. It’s made from low VOC panels, only 2 sheets of 4’x8′ instead of 3 sheets of 5’x9′. The parts are also easily snapped together with an innovative new snap fastener. Hoping to build the first prototype unit later this fall.

    Oh, and I was lucky to collaborate on the graphic theme with Montreal graphic artist, Sebastian Cuypers
