Daruma Ramen

Signage - White Oak Table Centerpieces - Black Walnut, Resin

March 2013

I designed and made the functional centerpieces for the is new ramen house on West 6th last fall in 2012. The floral decoration inlayed with resin on the sides is taken from the wall paper of the interior and  is a different color at each table. Not long after delivering the centerpieces, the owners of the establishment contacted me and asked me to collaborate with them on the sign. After starting with a concept based off tradtional japanese signage on live edge slabs, we ended up with a hand carved large wood block print design.

Galvanized Forged Steel

This three-pronged structure, located in the center of a large water feature in a landscaped park for an exclusive housing developement, echoes the water lily motif found in the rest of the project, whimsically recalling successive stages of blooming, and provides a distinctive identity for the project.
