I was asked by the owner of TiLite to create a special Black Edition of the TR, one of TiLite's flagship chairs. The challenge was to create a chair that was almost all black and carried minimal new parts to inventory.

A special tattoo was created using the letters in the logo. I also developed a powder coat treatment that would allow us to have a glossy pattern with a matte frame.

A real carbon fiber material back stripe along with a grayscale logo patch were used to set off the upholstery.

Some of the other finishing touches were: Custom stainless quick release axels, matte black foot rest and black soft roll casters.

The chair was a huge success. Some how word got out and we had orders before the chair had even been released or seen.

In 2007 I started a blog called Plastolux in a desire to feed my passion for mid century modern and contemporary design found in architecture, interiors, furniture, objects and art. Our focus lies with individuals that express strong feelings towards ingenuity, utmost quality, simplicity of design and the use of honest materials. We have a strong appreciation for the mid-20th century and those pioneers/designers that explored modern materials with simplistic clean lined design.

Plastolux has lead me to some great opportunities and colaborations.

Through my blog Plastolux, I was fortunate to meet a talented designer/craftsman, Matt Eastvold. Matt and I have worked on several projects together. We were in desperate need for some new nightstands which lead to my design of the Plastolux side table. I needed a skilled craftsman to bring my design to life and Matt did a fantastic job. There is a brass and walnut version along with steel powder coated base and oak or walnut. The same design has now carried over into a coffee table

The tabel was also featured in Dwell Magazine.

TiLite had been developing the best wheelchairs in the world for 10 years and wanted to create a limited edition wheelchair and only 110 would be made. Not only was the frame radically different than past models but the styling would need to be different as well. I developed a whole set of titanium tattoos for the chair that were only available on the Z10. The aluminum parts were tumbler polished before the anodization with the results being high gloss ano colors. I worked with an airbrush artist to clear coat the carbon fiber parts giving them the same color as ano parts. Lastly each chair was given a water jet cut number plate that indicated which number they had in the edition of 110. Logo, print, web and other marketing materials were developed along with the chair.

In 2012 TiLite needed a cohesive design element that would express the direction the company. TiLite had purchased another company allowing them to move into a new market. TiLite had become a "Dimensional" company. The shifting angles and surfaces were added to print, web and trade show displays to express their growth.

The Goodro Credenza is a collaboration between Myself and Matt Eastvold. We wanted to design a credenza that has some design cues from the 50's and 60's while using contemporary materials and finishes. The cabinet is solid walnut with a steel powder coated base.
