Mahogany Plank Spiral Staircase

Mahogany Spiral Staircase with frost tempered glass 'hand rails'


I rendered this mahogany spiral staircase about a year ago. I imagined this with the glass slotted through the wood beams and dowel mounted in place. Another option would be to run stressed threaded rod through the beams and clamp the glass in place with felt bushings, depending on the expected use of the staircase.

Industrial Coffee Table

Industrial Cart

This industrial cart is my take on the recent trend to use industrial carts for coffee tables or end tables in high end loft condos (or anywhere else). This features cast iron wheels with heavy glass table top. The frame would be manufactured from cast iron, stainless steel or aluminum, depending on your preferences. Continue reading

Building WIP 1


This is a start to a building I am working on. It is intended to look like a wide billowing sail without the hard edges of a sail with a mast. I am still thinking about the appearance of the glass, and will see what it looks like as I work on it.

Office Boardroom

Glass desk office boardroom

This rendering was a test to see how Rhino 3D’s embedded render program did with lighting a city background.

The table is an interesting piece that I would like to build for a client. This is a single piece of gold tinted (imagine the color of beer) tempered glass with a rippled bottom surface, set on a chrome plate (or brushed stainless steel) set of legs. Perhaps you might want it the color of wine? That can be done as well!

Glass & Chrome Shelving – Design

Chroma Green Shelving Unit

This ‘glass’ and chrome shelving unit is designed to refract any light you have in your room. I imagine this with only a minimal amount of display items sitting on it, however, it has the capacity to be a fully functional book shelf. The glass would appear darker when stack with books.

An option would be to paint the tubing the color of your choice, or select shelving colors from a wide range visible here: http://www.3-form.com/materials/chroma/

Glass Railing – Stair & Stanchion Detail

Stainless Stanchion

The image here is a quick look at how a stainless steel stanchion might look when mounting 1/2″ tempered glass as a perimeter railing. The standoffs mount the glass to the tabs on the posts through holes drilled in the glass.

The other detail is the wood planks as steps, mounted to hidden steel tabs embedded in the concrete from below. There is enough space to get a wrench in to replace the planks in case of damage, or to access dropped items. The underside of the stairwell is lit with LEDs to create the glow you see here.

Logo Design – Stjagg Management – Lobby Signage

Glass and Aluminum Lobby Signage

The logo and lobby signage layout shown here was for a project in my MBA marketing course. The logo was created and we went through the whole process of developing biographies for all the management team members. We developed a corporate website that went so far as to start looking for employees, all for the purposes of developing a brand for our team.
