KOI BIKE RACK_ A winning entry in a national design competition, the bike rack is inspired by a Japanese textile and the lazy fluidity of koi in a pond, the bike rack's sides are laser cut of stainless steel. The doubled and separated side-plates painted white inside create a changing moiré effect as the viewer moves around the rack. Internal lighting alternates between a cool stable white beam and delicately flickering shades of blue -- recalling reflections through water. The lighting bling deters thieves and gives bikes a deservedly glamorous hitch.
"For pure elegance, nothing came close to Koi...if the bike world needs a new standard, this may be it."

SPRINGTIME RAMBLE_ The winning entry in a city-wide competition, our public art awning captures the in-and-out consciousness of taking a walk in the city. Sometimes alert to one's surroundings, sometimes lost in thought -- the sidewalk scenes illustrated in sandblasted glass jump from residential to commercial street -- captured moments during a ramble in the cool wet of spring.
