I don't design collections, I just continue making stuff on a rolling basis. A lot of times a commissioned project may yield a piece that works well as a product - and then I'll figure out how to "productify" it. Sometimes a new piece is generated from studio play time - weld doodles, using scrap from other projects. Rarely do I develop a piece without a specific project need. I have to have a non-abstract relationship as to where the piece is going to end up. All this to say, here's stuff that became a "product" in 2015 - these items were shown at the Architectural Digest Home Design Show, Sight Unseen Offsite, and my own solo show Nuevo Pacifico at Poketo.
The Octahedron Stool was originally developed in the summer of 2014 for the The Chief's Peak bar at the Ojai Rancho Inn. They wanted something kinda "cosmic/cool" - so I riffed on the octahedron structure I've been playing with for years. Based on the response I received, I decided to turn that project stool into a product and launched at the AD Home Show in March 2015. The stools are available in my shop as well.
I developed these stools back in the spring of 2012, during grad school, and I decided to "productify" them this year. The frames are made of the same 5/8" solid hex rod that I use on my chair frames. They make for a heavy duty stool, or great small side table or plant stand. Available through my online shop. The stools debuted as part of my solo show called Nuevo Pacifico - June 6th at Poketo DTLA.
