Core 77 awards has selected our Olithas video entry as part of the C77 Design Awards Gallery

up against big budgets like
Steelcase, Herman Miller, and Ziba.
Jeff Marrow for helping us pull this quick Video together in an afternoon.
He went above and beyond any expectations when we approached him to help us with this entry.

Tertulia and Olithas at Design Within Reach
I’m happy to announce ‘Tertulia’ was selected amongst the 4 winners

last night for this year’s M+D+F Design Within Reach Austin Furniture Designer’s show.
12 pieces were chosen finalists, including Olithas. I was very impressed with the overall craft,
rigor, and dedication shown by the collection exhibited, and believe now more than ever,
that Austin is an up and coming place to be as a young Designer. Thank you all who came

It seems like yesterday I got the idea of extruding Play-Doh® into some type of stone/concrete/green furniture…
Happy to share my latest results!
O-Lithas is a collection of outdoor/indoor furniture based on the idea of creating a new and consistent language to integrate steel and Cement. The concept is achieved by casting a ribbed wavy pattern on the backside of a concrete slab, and using recyclable aluminum or stainless steel bars to complete as base.
