Studio Elevn

 

Studio Elevn (visit site) is a New York style production studio in Downtown SLC that provides a space and community for photographers and creatives to work together and make something amazing. Being a community space, we needed to create furniture that was functional, durable and modular. 

With this in mind, we decided to create a set of tables that were made from steel and mounted on casters which allowed them to withstand the stress of multiple uses and be easily manipulated in a large space. Not only are they durable, but they also helped to enhance the modern industrial aesthetic of a New York style loft. Four years in, these pieces still look great and have had no need of maintenance. 

The piece that highlighted this bid was the Elevn conference table. Michael called me up and said that he had and idea to use a remnant piece of resin he acquired from a company called Three Form (Link). It was a solid 3” slab that weight around 500lbs and spanned over 6ft in length. I knew it had to be structurally sound for that amount of weight so i ordered the appropriate materials and had him send me over the exact dimensions and got to work. Took me around 4 hours to construct, casters and all. I delivered the table to the studio, grabbed a couple people and headed to my brothers house. Took quite a bit to lift the slab, but once we managed to get it to the studio, with a 1/16 of an inch gap and a slow displacement of air from all corners, it fell perfectly flush. It was only then, in that moment of success, that i told Michael of the date the steel had been stamped. 11/11/11, Which held the utmost significance to the studio being named Elevn. With that kind of coincidence it was meant to be that everything worked out seamlessly.
