One of our most creative projects last year was creating a coffee table for the grammy nominated but mysterious young talent, Zhu
Read the L. A. Times article about this "mystery man".
We were asked to create a coffee table as a three dimensional rendition of Zhu's logo.
First we designed the logo to be seen as a top view on the coffee table, but it lacked the dynamic we wanted and finally came up with this rendition.
Everybod loved the design, but rendering something on a cad program is the easy part; making it a functional piece of art is another matter. It was important that the "Z" have be structurally stable so we used 2" solid wood.
Sanded and ready to go into the finishing booth.
The juxtaposition of the earthy vintage Douglas Fir and the minimalist, clean design created a piece that was modern and edgy, while elegant and bespoke
The final product was a perfect representation of Zhu's innovative, clean sound. Love his song Faded.
