This was a fun job..! For a clothing business in downtown Los Angeles, we created a Chinese style geometric pattern in high relief. This was the brainchild of George Kelly Architects, who send us lots of cool jobs. There is downstairs conference room, and an upstairs main room wall that feeds through a glass wall into the owners office. The pattern is continuous.
The scale of this surprised us once we started. We milled over a thousand feet of trim in two sizes, 1 1/2″ x 1/2″ and 1″ x 1/2″. These are surrounded by thicker wide frames.
The strips we cut from poplar. We milled it ourselves because we couldn’t find that specific size commercially available.
The whole thing is a geometric puzzle. It may look like a simple installation, but we layed it out to a high level of precision. It looks good because it’s carefully done…We take a lot of pride in the work we do, and expanding into this type of graphic pattern is something new for us.
