Krames Dining Table

Krame1

White oak, stainless steel cable
dimensions 42"w x 29"h x 78"l (120"l expanded)

made for Christy Krames

July 2011

Christy came to me with a very strong visual idea for an expandable dining table.  She had visions of a dramatic Art Deco-inspired base made of a big "X".  I designed a base with curved, bent-laminated shapes that joined in the center.  It was a crazy, nutty frenzy of construction: 24 layers of oak veneer in a big clamping form with glue squeezing everywhere.  But somehow, miraculously, it worked, and how.

Projects for Castleview Productions

Castleview Reception Desk

Maple, steel, recycled plastic, salvaged stainless steel

made for Castleview Productions

March 2009

These projects were commissioned by Castleview Productions for their new office in central Austin. We designed these projects to meet their budget, and we built and delivered everything to meet their time frame. During the design phase, they gave us plenty of room to use our imaginations. To keep costs down, we specified stained maple, painted formaldehyde-free mdf, and ordinary steel. And we even used a salvaged stainless steel refrigerator door for the bar in the kitchen!

The Umasi Collection

Umasi Chair

Recycled and repurposed materials

made for Product Line

January 2005

The Umasi Collection is specifically designed to blur the line between furniture and sculpture - with perfect panels that collide into organic elements. 

 

Because Umasi is largely built of salvaged materials, it clearly comments on the nature of our consumer society. But it's also a ready platform for other forms of social commentary, with references to art history, contemporary culture, and even the politics of war.

 

We hope you enjoy Umasi.

Maple and Mahogany table

Oregon Table

Curly maple and Mahogany
dimensions 3' x7'

made for David Amdur

September 1990

Curly Maple was cut down for a right of way in Oregon somewhere and transported to Texas by friends, who alerted me as to the where abouts of some fantastic boards.  

Then the base was made for a photo shoot - with  microchips laid out on a gambling table-  for the photographer Tomas Pantin.....a "shoot" for a High Tech Magazine Cover.....

Now,  after 20 years of daily work, the table has been refinished to a silky smooth touch.
