Mobius, a collaboration with 3form, is made with their new material: "Dark Chroma". The piece is an interactive bench that lights up as you touch it. Using vibration sensors, the light intensity and degradation rate is mapped from the raw data of the sensors, creating an amazing and unexpected effect.

Originally conceived for 12x12 at Wanted Designs 2012, (sponsored by Sawkill Lumber Co.), Round & Round is a circular communal bench and storage unit that is balanced on one single line. Though appearing to be a solid mass, as one end of the bench is pushed, the opposing side pops open revealing itself to be a continuous hidden drawer. The drawer fully extends and slides back into the opposing opening, traveling around and round the entirety of the piece.
