• PAD – Trundle bed

    Here is a trundle bed that was designed for a couple in east Toronto. They wanted something that would help their daughter transition from crib to toddler bed and last until she started high school.

    Initial concept

    Final product


    Watch for a design feature of yours truly in the latest edition of NOW Magazine. It will be out on newsstands and online June 24th 2010.

    Check back in the next month for posts of my latest projects. I’ve really gotta get on that….


  • A look at Maker culture

    Here is an interesting article on Marker culture and the possibilities of manufacturing in North America into the future.



    Here is a picture of the Annex in Wingback form.

  • ANNEX WINGBACK – On display at Radiant Dark

    Here is a sneak peek of my latest creation. “Annex” is an arm chair that can be converted into a wing chair. The idea is to build added value into the original piece. By providing the option to “up-convert” the chair, the user can renew it’s appearance and ultimately extend it’s life.

    All materials for production pieces consist of FSC plywood inner frame, FSC walnut or maple legs, soy based high resilience foam, wool fabric, spring seat suspension and felt glides. As usual, the chair can be disassembled for easy transport and all parts are replaceable if damaged.

    Here are some preliminary CAD screen captures.

  • Visit to Sheridan College Furniture Design program

    Big thanks to Scott Eckert who teaches a course within the Sheridan Furniture program. I had the pleasure of visiting the school and talking to a 2nd year class about 608 Design.

  • RD 2010

    I will be showing a new piece at this year’s Radiant Dark. Its going to be awesome. http://www.madedesign.ca/radiantdark/main.html


    IIDEX/NEOCON asked Made design to curate a booth of past works from the Radiant Dark exhibitions. For September 23th to 26th the CUBERT_L2 (Cubert love seat) was chosen to be on display at booth 1931.

    608 was also asked to supply furniture for booth 631 dedicated to green design based in Toronto. Come by on Friday, I’ll be on site.

  • Green Living Show

    Check out the sweetness of Cubert at the Green Living Show. It was a part of the Green-ovations exhibit which showcased products committed to eco-effective production methods. I also met David Robitaille, manager of Corporate Citizenship and Affairs at IBM. They’re promoting social and environmental sustainability using technology to optimize business operations. Nice!
