A couple weeks back we had the privilege to take photos with Julie Cope, one of our good friends who is a photographer here in Austin. We couldn’t be happier with how the photos turned out. Visit our facebook page to see the photos and leave some feedback.
Over the next few weeks we will be doing features on some of our new designs. We will talk about the material, design process and why we built and designed certain pieces.
Above is the cask series, included is the cask side chair, rocker and arm chair. Each chair is made with bent steel rod and repurposed wine slates. Oiled to hold in the natural colors and tones of the wine stained oak, a visually pleasing contrast with the raw steel frame. The design of these chairs mimics an exploded drawing of a wine barrel, a visual way of explaining the name “cask”. We went through a few different back curves with this set before finally finding one that was a comfortable and appealing.
