My designs for the show are inspired by industrial architectural elements found in Minneapolis Warehouse District near the Mississippi River like timber frame posts, metal fire doors on top rolling tracks, and metal trestle bridges. I am trying to incorporate these industrial elements and a raw material aesthetic to a series of furniture including side tables, lighting and seating. Below is an idea board featuring some of these inspirational elements and some metal finishes I am considering.
Above is a pulley that I am using to build a light fixture.
I just need to find the perfect counter weight.
