"Telos" is a one-act play performed at the Chain Theatre on September of 2023. The play was produced by Remember Entertainment and directer by Claudia Stock.
Set in a sterile Brooklyn bar, the play unfolds as a group of men deliberate a crime they committed. To enable the actors to fully express themselves on stage, we opted for a minimalistic design focusing materiality and lighting. Our team designed and built the bar and table, complemented by four sourced chairs.
Our studio placed a strong emphasis on waste management when designing the set for the play, taking into account its short stage lifespan of only 3 days. We utilized reclaimed wood from street pallets for the bar and table design. To enhance the auditory experience, we covered them with salvaged metal sheets to capture the sound of glasses hitting the surface.
Our first collection, Lemn, derives its name from the Romanian word for wood, to honor the material's significance and its symbolic representation of growth.
Lemn's cylindrical shape emerged when we were commissioned to design three stools for a modern coffee shop in Manhattan. Our goal was to make a sculptural and contemporary piece that seamlessly fit with the cafe's sleek design. Our formal exploration was inspired by a simple geometric shape: a circle, representing harmony, perfection, and balance.
Crafted from birch plywood, a tree native to New York, the Leon series showcases handmade furniture that offers a unique alternative to mass-produced designs. The collection consists of four distinct items: the single-legged stool, the double-legged stool, the bench, and the console.
