The "Heart of Diamond" watch features a complex knurled face, large contrasting hands and an innovative mechanism that holds a .25ct diamond. The watch was a reaction to the popular "super bling" diamond watches. My goal was to make a watch that radiated like ripples on a pond centered on a single stone.
The Pophdwr watch was for the rising Canadian brand of caps, toques and beanies. They are expanding into a whole new line of products including plaid shirts, sunglasses and....watches.
My first watch design was part homage part mash-up of some of my favorite watches, including: B&R, Void and a little bit of Apple.
The Fetish chair attempts to bridge the gap between our cultural demand for new objects and our personal desire for nostalgia.
The chair is CNC milled from hard white oak and finished with black rubber. It is my second chair to design and manufacture.
These studio quality headphones were developed for the Canadian brand POPHDWR. The cable can be completely removed to enable wireless BlueTooth device communication or hard wired for rocking tunes on the go.
The showroom is composed of 1930's antique ball lamps and photos from the sports history, however, the space feels more like the future than the past.
From the outside a section of the interior track is exposed to the street. This creates a covered pocket for riders to park there bikes.
The entrance to the living space reveals the central column that houses the bathroom on the bottom floor and the art studio above. The staircase wraps this column. The living space is humble, but has a hidden spare bed for guests and lots of storage space to hide away clutter.
Upstairs is the open loft bedroom, a office work space and artist painting studio.
The entrance to the Momofufu restaurant is discrete. It does not face onto the busy boulevard, instead it caters to the valet clients.
The walls are exposed cinderblock with custom recessed lighting and the tables are crushed cars that have been dipped in white rubber. These crude elements have been dressed up to give a compelling sense of the raw and refined.
A view into the kitchen gives dinners a chance to witness the excitement happing behind the scenes. Also you can see the milk bar puncturing into the space.
Milk faces out onto the boulevard attracting passers by with its retro dinner inspired lines.
