At long last, we have begun preparations for the opening of art / work / place! Thanks to Woodbury University, we were able to source the basic materials for our stools and working tables from a project that was completed by a fifth year student. His design model for modular building was entered into a design competition as a part of his studies. After the competitions conclusion, the remaining modular blocks were headed for the trash when Kare, of art / work / place, saw potential in their form. After some design collaboration, we got to work. We spent the weekend in Woodbury University shop re-purposing the basic units into versatile stools and working tables for the studio.
