Residential Condo Project in Grand Rapids

 

It is not all furniture for me these days…
Our latest Architectural Design Collaboration in Grand Rapids, MI;
A residential shell-space condo that features two stories of amazing floor to ceiling views, amazing art, and fun and challenging custom features such as a ‘floating’ bookshelf against the glass, tables that descent from the ceiling, custom mill work, and reclaimed left-over Jarrah wood from our factory in Kalamazoo.

Great project, Team, Friends, and Clients!

Olithas:Part of C77DA Video Gallery

 

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

earlier this week. We are extremely happy and elated for this recognition, considering we were

up against big budgets like Steelcase, Herman Miller, and Ziba.

Thank you 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.

Introducing ‘Tertulia en Pecan’

Tertulia en Pecan‘ is the latest iteration of the Tertulia Series. It is a fusion of traditional wood craft techniques,

and modern sensibility. It features the use of locally harvested and steam bent solid Texas Pecan, and the first

collaboration between Studio Efra and Bedre Woodworking.

It will debut next month at ICFF New York May 14-17.

Introducing “Tertulia Fissa”

Photo Credit: Alisa Marrow

‘Tertulia’ is the Spanish word for gathering, a conversational get together in

which people simply sit and exchange their ideas freely. Tertulias can happen

in a moments notice, but they can also happen at a fixed place and time.

Tertulia Fissa is part of a family of chairs originally derived from the metal

curved rods inside a climbing pack and the folding patented and lightweight

geometry of earlier folding Tertulia Chairs.

This tertulia iteration is however, defined by a stout steel sheet-metal frame,

and a fixed geometry. It is heavily bound to site, and it is unapologetic about

being an exercise in pure form. You may also call it an Ode to Richard Serra.

Dimensions: 34″ x 14″ x 28″ (1/8″ steel)

This project is a collaboration between Studioefra, and Colin McIntyre.
