Custom Modern Industrial Humidor

Here is a one-of-a-kind custom Humidor that I built this past fall. The design is a continuation of my industrial style combining wood and metal into an elegant modern cabinet.

The client was looking for an industrial look featuring lots of metal and blackened wood. I chose to break up the sides of the piece with a unique solid stainless steel rod “pin stripe” There are three of these on each side of the cabinet.

The base has two semi circles of stainless rods and those rods also make up the pulls for the door and drawers of the cabinet.

Behind the door there are 6 drawers all in Spanish Cedar. This whole compartment is has the humidity controlled by and electronic humidification system. The main humidification unit is in the bottom drawer and has a fan to distribute the moist air up into the cabinet. There are miniature fans behind each drawer to promote even air flow throughout the cabinet. The sensor for humidity control is diagonally opposite the humidifier (top front left, versus bottom back right) to give an accurate read on the moisture in the cabinet.

The door is lined with Spanish Cedar and seals against a rubber gasket with two rare earth magnets. It pivots on a full height stainless steel piano hinge, that has been customized to fit the piece exactly.

There is a LED light strip in the cabinet that illuminates as the door is opened.

The two drawers below the door are not humidified and were created for storage by request of the client. They feature aluminum bottoms and dyed black sides.

All the drawers are dovetailed for strength, beauty and quality. The Cigar drawers are all constructed of Spanish Cedar and their bottoms have diagonal slots to better promote air flow.

The electrics are seamlessly integrated into the piece. The only electrical cord that is seen on the whole piece is the wire and plug which exits the back edge of the bottom left vertical panel.

Lastly, as with all of my pieces, the back is fully finished and appointed with an aluminum panel to match the front of the cabinet. This piece can be against a wall, or function as a stand alone element in a room

Lastly, if you’ve made it this far, a custom ashtray out of a massive chunk of aluminum that I made for the client.

New pieces

I’m very excited to introduce four new tables. These tables are built with an extreme visual structure based on a grid. They have a extreme quantity of “legs” and cross member elements which visually resonate. They blur the boundaries between sculpture and furniture. Each piece has its own personality and concept. All of the pieces can be ordered with different woods.

Metis Coffee Table

Industrial brackets connect the many elements of this square coffee table. 16 legs visually vibrate your eyes.

 

Elara Coffee Table

A gradient from dense to sparse of legs with a single cross over detail. The 22 legs are varying heights which occasionally reach the glass.

 

Kalyke Pedestal

Six layers of structure define this unique pedestal. The top is a veneered wood, and it can be ordered in glass as well.

 

Europa Hall Table

Europa is an intoxicating frenzy of elements which cross and overlap and resonate. 25 legs touch the floor and the glass. 45 horizontal elements create the structure.

Tangent Liquor cabinet with LED lighting

I recently completed a custom version of my Tangent liquor cabinet that was stretched to 78″ long and had a seamless integration of LED lights. The three upper cabinets have lights that come on as the doors are opened. The shelf below has lighting that is activated by a swipe of the hand on a touch switch.

This cabinet challenged me to integrate a dozen wires that are hidden within the piece, with the only visible wire being the cord sneaking out the bottom of one of the concrete pillars. I also had to re-design my aluminum end fitting to allow the stainless rods to elegantly connect to either side of the shelf. In all there are over 500 components that were assembled into this piece!
