Hi Everyone. I recently entered my studio's portfolio into a juried international contest called Art Takes Miami. The winning portfolio will be given... (drum roll) a show booth at the prestigious SCOPE Miami held during Art/Basel 2011, to display their art/designs to the world. So, if you're looking for something to do and you have a burning desire deep down to help a somewhat young designer out, then please take a moment to cast a vote for my portfolio of work.
Hi Everyone, It's been a crazy few months of developing and finalizing projects, new commissions and whenever possible, experimenting with my own personal design collection. In the last months, LMNOQ also participated in INVENTORY, a major design exhibition showcasing the fresh new work of local South Florida designers and architects. I'm also proud to say that the studio and I were featured in The Miami Herald and in the New York Times. So, please take a few minutes to look over what's been happening behind the scenes at studio LMNOQ...
First up a room divider made from reclaimed vintage beer cans. This was developed for Jorge Garcia the owner of Zona Verde a local restaurant / art gallery space. The piece consists of just over 500 vintage beer cans of different brands and varieties. Sometimes drinking on the job has it's advantages.
Next, one of my most favorite commissions this year, a new work desk for my friend Yovani Bauta. He needed something deeper then average yet compact enough to be able to work around it in his studio space. This piece has now become a cornerstone design piece for my studio and it's been customized in several different sizes depending on the clients needs.
Now, the most challenging build this year was designing and constructing the exhibition piece for my new friend Alba Fernanda Triana. She's an amazing experimental composer from Columbia and what she required was a new housing for her existing interactive computer piece.
I'm also proud to say that her work received an Honorable Mention from the Fifth annual All-media Juried Biennial.
So let me know what you think. I will be posting more of the work that my studio LMNOQ produced in the last few months as well as the current developments in my own design collection. Thank you, and stay tuned for more.
I would like to give a big THANK YOU, to everyone that has purposely or accidently, visited my studio blog and checked out the stories and background tomfoolery that defines my studio projects. And a special thank you goes out to those of you who took the time to post a comment or sent an email of encouragement or support. It means a lot to me to know that I'm not alone in my design endeavors.
So, I would like to announce that this studio blog now has a companion website designed by my good friend Babette Herschberger, where you can finally see the finished projects that my studio has been producing for the last year. So, please take a moment and check it out. And as always, I would love to hear your comments.
