  • ECOSUAVE 2009

    Here are some pictures of the night. It was a great crowd and wonderful samples of incredibly tasty, locally sourced food and drink. Personal favorite was the organic iced cream…Yowzers that’s good stuff. I had a chance to the chat with the green public and explain how I do what I do. Big thanks to Mihee and Tommy for the invite and exposure.

    Here are two images of my work from the show.

    The bar is a modular concept, CNC cut from Canadian pine plywood, finished with a water-based white wash stain and clear coat. All components interconnect with each other and can create multiple configurations that are stitched together with Manila rope.

    The DJ Booth is a dual functioning piece that converts from a turntabalists work surface to a chillounger. All parts are…you guessed it, CNC cut and fit together like a puzzle. Once glued and clamped together, the OSB truss-like inner construction forms a structural, graphically intense assembly. A turn table rests atop each platform with a milk crate in the middle to house records and support the mixer.

    Inspirations for both objects reflect experiments in CNC machining processes combined with traditional wood joinery and design for disassembly methodologies. Domestic building materials are fused with techno, architectural and industrial design elements.

    Thanks to the Curatorial Collective for their enthusiasm and support. More pictures to come…

  • Dark is the new light

    For nearly two weeks MADE put on an incredible exhibition of Canadian designed products titled Radiant Dark. I was overjoyed to have participated in the show and to have met so many amazing people. Owners of MADE Shaun and Julie invested a lot of time and effort into this project and its shows. From an internal viewpoint, there’s a strong sense of community forming around these two. Its a forum where designers can share, learn and help one another succeed as independent makers.

    Here are a couple images of the Cubert Chair from the show. For more coverage of Radiant Dark, see
