Brandywine River Museum – Observation House

Design + Fabrication / Sustainable Wood Products

On the banks of the Brandywine River, just beyond the museum halls, stands a tetrahedral structure made from our Skyline Cedar – reclaimed NYC rooftop water towers. Observation House serves as a multifunctional enclosure, designed and built in collaboration with artist Dylan Gauthier as part of his year-long residency. The design is borrowed from an early 20th century shed built by inventor Alexander Graham Bell for viewing experiments and trials in the field. 


Brooklyn Museum – Visitor Experience

Project Development / Sustainable Wood Products

The Brooklyn Museum’s entrance re-imagined by Situ Studio features our Spalted Maple throughout the glass pavilion and lobby.

Maui NY Office – Reception Desk

Design + Fabrication / Sustainable Wood Products

The Maui NY studio needed a reception desk to match their new Tri-Lox custom workstations.

The slatted cladding that wraps the front of the desk, displays the elegance of our Skyline Redwood.

For The Unspecific Index exhibition at 601 Artspace in NYC, we used a variety of materials and forms to create an array of minimalist display units ranging from interactive sound pedestals and protective vitrines to tetrahedral tables. The exhibition design was informed by the art on display, particularly by that of R. Buckminster “Bucky” Fuller.

Preserve 24

Design + Fabrication / Sustainable Wood Products

12×12 NYC, a furniture design exhibition that took place during Design Week NYC ’12 at Wanted Design, paired twelve contemporary furniture designers with reclaimed wood from twelve New York City buildings and asked each to create a unique piece.

CMA – Face to Face

Design + Fabrication

An exhibition at the Children’s Museum of the Arts NY that explores self-perception through interactive sculpture by Tri-Lox as well as still, moving, and living portraits. “I” is a sculpture that explores ideas of reflection, changing perspective, and the unexpected. The design is based on a flexible network of mirrored scales that hang together in a pronounced curvature from the gallery ceiling down to a floating entrance. The interior is a hidden mosaic of color surrounding a mirrored dome pedestal. 

Fraunces Tavern

Design + Fabrication / Sustainable Wood Products

It is a unique opportunity to make the furniture for the oldest building in Manhattan. That’s exactly what we did for the renovated bar/restaurant and we did it by integrating original structural beams from NYC buildings as well as artifacts from the building itself. The furniture includes large communal dining tables, café-style bar tables, and the chef’s table.

West Village Loft – Bookshelf

Design + Fabrication / Sustainable Wood Products

With its open plan and neutral-toned materials, this loft was in need of a bold, organic element that could be flexibly used as a spatial divider and display. This custom piece of furniture is made entirely from our Skyline Redwood, sourced from NYC rooftop water towers, and finished in Natural to show off its rich and authentic tones.    

West Village Loft – Freestanding Closet

With its open plan and a dearth of storage, this loft was in need of a feature element that could be flexibly used as a spatial divider and clothing rack. This custom piece of furniture is made from bluestone, brass, and our Countryside American Chestnut in a Natural finish. The Chestnut used to build this unit was recovered from a 1790’s Connecticut house.
