Greenbox Architecture approached So Watt after seeing our Loft Media Unit at Sydney InDesign festival. They had already begun their journey of detailing the design for their new Sydney CBD office and were looking for exciting and homely furniture that was out of the ordinary. We worked closely with Greenbox to detail their custom storage pieces, ensuring that we kept the styling of our media unit. Amongst the changes were large drawers, subbed in from cupboards, which would have the capacity to house files and equipment - along with the odd tin of tuna and gym bag. Flat patterns were laser cut from steel, then folded and assembled with an air-powered rivet gun, making for no messy weld joints! The huge drawers finished up pleasantly lightweight and were installed on full extension runners to allow maximum accessibility and storage capability. The external housing was made on our CNC machine from high grade Birch Plywood, and finished with Osmo wood waxes. This particular wax provides durability and a textured, natural feeling finish - a more thoughtful approach than the usual corporate laminates.
