CUSTOM ENTERTAINMENT CENTER
  • Project: Custom Entertainment Center
  • Scope: Custom Design, Design+Build
  • Work: Geometric Experiment, Custom Fabrication, Break-apart-design

Project Description:
One of the first actual custom pieces designed & built. This project was part of a design+build studio while at Miami University, an exercise in furniture design based on geometric design. Defining geometric shapes are the Cube & Tetrahedron (a derivative of the Cube). The "legs" of the piece are defined by the edges of a Tetrahedron made of Spalted Beech Wood. The planer or cube pieces are made of solid walnut harvested locally. All pieces of the unit are held with fasteners that maintain a 1/2" space.
