An elegant twist of the One-Two concept table with metal hair pin style legs, live edge hardwood and a singular off-center dropped box. Place a chair and a laptop and it is your ideal work desk. Place along a corridor and drop your keys and mail in the vertical slots as you enter your home. Minimal in its approach and Unique in its design, the High Table accommodates any residential space.
This is my 3rd restaurant project that is set in a Victorian-style three level building in Downtown Toronto. First level is a more energetic and dynamic lunch oriented space with bright spaces and unique design elements and the 2nd level is more fine dining with a chef's area for large groups and private reservations
You sit down, but as you wait you have the ability to effortlessly grab a magazine or a book right underneath. You then place the book back in the the vertical slots. Bringing the focus back to the end user and the act of "sitting", is the simple idea behind the One-Two Bench, which was created from direct communication between designer and client.

150 Year Old Wooden Beams removed to allow for the re-structuring of a new restaurant. This was the only guideline to creating these stools. Solid steel metal frame with patina finish, cross cuts of the reclaimed beams, stacked in square pieces with scalloped seat tops and hollowed handles complete the rustic yet modern stools for an authentic Spanish tapas restaurant.
The Thompson Condo feature wall is an interior installation commissioned by a private client. The design intent is to feature an elevated bar and hidden shelves while emphasizing the appreciation for walnut and maple hardwood.
The communal wine coaster brings wine aficionados together, to share their passion, while keeping things a bit tidy in a group setting. Not only does it keep the drinks together in the center of the table, but also acts as a reminder as to where you last placed your drink. The use of the cork as the main material, emphasizes the need for recycling the millions of cork tops in the wine industry.
One-Two is the quintessential coffee table for any living room or reception space. With function and design in mind, the table becomes a conversation piece while effectively storing your favourite books away.

Treated by hand with multi directional mitred and scalloped joints, various finishes, vintage and frosted bulbs, shaders or left exposed, the Sleipe Lights are a well crafted and functional collection of desk lights. As a sculptural form, an accessory, over your shelves, your wooden side table or simply mix the pieces together, the sneaky design element is a twist on the literal rigidity of the conventional light
The Poly Plane is the reinterpretation of the simple and often overlooked receipt holder. Designed for a restaurant, the polygonal planes bend and create secure spaces for bill and credit cards.
The addition of a 3rd Box. It is simple and functional. But the original design evolves into something more than a table. It dominates the space, becomes a conversational piece, as you want to sit around it, feel the texture, the weight, the solidity. This is the One-Two-Three table. Made of multi-core wood with mitred joints, CNC cut table top with core laminate.
