This dining room table was designed around a central water filled trough to serve as a romantic fire lit feature flowing from end to end. A flicker of light sets the mood as floating candles are hidden below the top of the trough. The table top is an alternating red and white oak butcher block surface. The legs are steel.
This table was built with found objects, an antique door as surface, and 4 antique legs as support. The panels of the door have been filled with galvanized steel to create a continuous smooth surface.
This bench was built to accompany a dining table. It originated as a church pew found at a North Carolina flea market and then was transformed into a bench. The trim and arms were raised and galvanized threaded rods inserted to create the height needed for its new purpose.
This table was designed to support a glass surface that would appear to float within the wood posts. The structure is minimal with the objective that it can be built with relative ease without many steps to the process.
Furniture must respond directly to the evolution of how we live and work in a flexible society. The home and office demand products that must easily adjust to a specific task. These products in the form of furniture should not restrict the course of technology or our behavior. The table system is based on the methodology of flexibility and change. The structure is a 15 inch square module steel frame supporting a platform. The design allows for the attachment of multiple panels on all four sides. The lateral connection provides unlimited expansion capacity without restricting orientation. Each panel provides 5 leg attachment points; all 4 corners and the center. This attachment system allows for personalized assemblies along the 15 inch grid. Each leg has the ability to change height independently of the system. This feature remedies the problem of uneven floors and expands task flexibility. The surface of the table is a secondary means of responding to the user's needs. The platform may be composed of any material with inherent qualities required to support specific duties and tasks. The design of a modular surface at a scale much smaller than the typical size of a similar table systems in conjunction with the universality of the leg connection allows fora unique response to adapting to a variety of tasks.

The box as an organizational tool was broken down into smaller components that could be various sizes, and coded with colors or images. The smaller containers that make up the whole could be removed to create places for open shelving. The result is a multi-functional object with a variety of configurations to support individual needs.
