practical chaos, 2009

LESS IS MORE? Not when you’re trying to create the next “must have”.

  Setting the right mood in an artisan’s workshop determines the success of the performance. Escaping from day-to-day reality is essential, as it improves workflow, increases productivity and limits the infamous creative block. And it all starts with a cool, crafty, inspiring space.

  A modern take on an early 20th c. industrial design; the attractive opposites of the neutral B&W lay the foundation. Taking center stage, the wild organic curves of the hand painted zebra floor balances out the room’s overall masculine style of straight lines, weighted furniture and rustic accents.

 Accommodating the mixed medium frenzy of painting, sewing, drafting and design, designated workstations with hip modern containers keep the small space neat & tidy, while the open storage concept provides visual –idea generating– stimulation.

  Slick, dark wood shelving, brushed chrome metal organizers and natural cork accessories add warmth & texture. Building on the look, a bold, energetic colored wall of ribbons, gives instant impact to the reserved space.

 It’s a celebration of form and function laying the groundwork for the next great American small biz success story.
