On this week’s episode we will install a grand reception desk made of COMPAC quartz stone. We’ll make an entire wall into a trophy case made from CARVART glass, install a bold submaterial felt wall, and let’s not forget about another important element – COLOR! MMAD paints a site specific mural. AND Kalyn finds furniture from SERIES Seating and Dauphin that is both functional and fabulous.
One of the main challenges Kalyn faced when designing this office space was SOUND! “You always have to consider acoustics when you’re designing… and I really wanted to put a material in the reception area and conference rooms that would help with sound.” She found David Hamlin from Submaterial and he introduced her to a material you might never associate with construction-but offered all the benefits of sound design and style. FELT! Submaterial produces thoughtful and precisely hand-crafted interior accessories for modern environments. Their works explore the territory between objects of art and objects of design, creating an opportunity for clients to add something truly unique and special to their homes and commercial environments. Their design process encourages direct participation from the client, allowing for their involvement in selections of color, scale, size and schedule. Check out this bold feature wall installation from Submaterial.
