Interior design and fabrication, Los Angeles, CA

The overall look of this project can best be summarized as spare and elemental, but with rich textures, crisp detailing and sensuous forms. The suite encompasses, literally, two quarter-pie-shaped executive offices, a secretarial station and a marble-clad executive washroom. The client, a wholesale upholstery fabric distributor, had asked for a serene contemporary environment with a natural pallet. My response was to feature three woods: birdseye maple for the horizontal surfaces, cocobolo for the table legs and aprons, and lightly figured anegre for the wall paneling and cabinetry. The client immediately fell for one of my first sketches showing a table top with draped edges and I was left then to figure out how to actually make it.


Birdseye maple and cocobolo
84"W x 42"D x 30" H

One of two mirror-image executive desks backed by credenzas built into the paneling. Desks are minimal but nicely animated, a good match for Mario Bellini’s famous Cab chairs.

SIDE TABLE 24"Dia x 24"H

The leather furniture (see Chairs and Sofas) was designed for informal conferencing and sales presentations but is comfortable enough for naps. The glass top tables were inspired by simple jewelry settings.
