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.
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 has been a work in progress for 10 yrs now. Its humble beginnings can be traced to a Design Studio course back in Spring of 2000. This post summarizes the highlights of that process.
my original statement read as follows:
I communicate best when I sit and feel comfortable with people, thus the idea of a ‘Tertulia’ came to mind.
The word Tertulia means small social gathering in Spanish.
The goal for the project is to become myself a ‘Communicator’ and design a ‘Tertulia kit’. This will enable me to create a Tertulia, anywhere I please.
I have two weeks, an internal frame back pack, and a cooler for beer, Wine, and crackers, but no chairs, So I will focus on the chairs.
Their form will derive from the metal curved rods inside my pack.
The chairs are meant to be carried as a snowboard on the pack’s snowboard/shovel pocket in the back. (brief from 2000)
Course: DES342 Design and Persuasion
Description: Studio projects will exercise the designer’s ability to convince and persuade.Topics will include historical models, the role of words, context and audience, and the effect of medium.
Prof: M. Mitrasinovic
Project Brief: Design a ‘Communicator’
To this day one of my biggest inspirations… As fresh today as it was in 1958!
