Above is the installation by Evan Bare for Come Up To My Room 2009 at the Gladstone Hotel.
The bar is a modular concept, CNC cut from Canadian pine plywood, finished with a water-based white wash stain and clear coat. All components interconnect with each other and can create multiple configurations that are stitched together with Manila rope.
The DJ Booth is a dual functioning piece that converts from a turntabalists work surface to a chillounger. All parts areâ€¦you guessed it, CNC cut and fit together like a puzzle. Once glued and clamped together, the OSB truss-like inner construction forms a structural, graphically intense assembly. A turn table rests atop each platform with a milk crate in the middle to house records and support the mixer.
Inspirations for both objects reflect experiments in CNC machining processes combined with traditional wood joinery and design for disassembly methodologies. Domestic building materials are fused with techno, architectural and industrial design elements.The entire set arrived flat in the back of a small sports car and was assembled within a couple of hours.
Evan Bare draws from his background as an Industrial designer to harness new possibilities through responsible design, green materials and CNC machining capabilities. His studio, 608 Design, creates unique residential pieces using 3D modeling and sustainable construction methodologies. Clean contemporary tables and seating with integrated storage and replaceable components are the primary focus.
