Orthodontist Office

When you think of the word Orthodontist..you definitely don't think of a beach and a surf board!

Well think again!!

Within is working on an Orthodontist office in El Paso, and THAT was our theme! We went all Hollister on the client! He loved it!

Today, we're off to pick a surfer-like fabric for the front and back benches... commercial grade of course... but would love to NOT do a vinyl...slim pickins.... we need something quick and fabulous...and of course cost effective... that's what we'll do this afternoon..

for now, we'll post these pics, the ones that inspired US and our client! Enjoy!

Let there be Light!

I recently was introduced to a company I had never heard of. jGoodDesign. Well named I must say!

They produce hand-crafted, eco-friendly, and playful designs! Their designer, Jeffrey Goodman, is based out of Greenwich Village in New York City. Definitely someone I'd like to meet.
These are just a few of the many amazing fixtures he has!

[Great Sits]

Grab a chair.... and make sure it's one of these

Designed by Ricardo Fasanello, ca. 1970.

"Esfera" revolving armchair exhibits a spherical fiberglass structure with an upholstered seat and back. In the 1970s, Fasanello worked with innovative materials for the time like polyester resin and fiberglass, mixing them with leather, steel and iron. The "Esfera" captures the mood of the space-age in both material and form. Fasanello´s large-scale, sculptural pieces draw on the influence of pop culture and are marked by a formal, constructive reasoning. Available in upholstery and painted iron. Produced by the Ricardo Fasanello studio, in Brazil

Designed by Sergio Rodrigues, in 1958.

"Beto" armchair with stainless steel frame, tauari wood arms and upholstered seat and back. Produced by LinBrasil.

Designed by Sergio Rodrigues, in 1962.

Originally designed for the exhibition "Furniture as Work of Art" in 1962. The "Aspas" armchair, or “Chifruda”, which is how the piece is more affectionately referred to in Rodrigues’ office, was never produced save for a lost prototype in jacaranda. The term "Chifruda" popularly connotes the image of a wife whose husband is adulterous. This quality is typical of Rodrigues’ unique sense of humor and wit, which characterizes an essential aspect of his design and architecture. At the request of the designer, the “Chifruda” armchair is available numbered editions, and is sold exclusively at Espasso. Imbuia or freij√≥ wood frame and leather. Edition of 40. Produced by Mendes-Hirth, in Brazil.
(He is still designing and is 82!! Go Sergio!!)

Designed by Carlos Motta

"Radar" armchair in reclaimed peroba rosa wood with oxidized iron. The piece features a four-leg tripod base affixed to the revolving chair, suggesting the idea of a radar.
