Linx is a modular bench system inspired by a process of material exploration and an interest in casting. The bases of the system are cast from a resin/sand mixture and interlock in the bleached ash wood top and the aluminum ring inserts. The bench tops link together through an insert so that you can articulate as many of them together as you need to fit your space.

LAMP 2018 Lighting Design Competition
The archway has been used throughout the history of civilization to provide balance and structure to great architectural marvels all around the world. The ARCH lamp brings that history into the home in the form of an adjustable light, providing balance between light and dark.
When turned on, the ARCH lamp lights up a small portion at the top, symbolizing the “keystone” of an archway, which provides balance and strength to the entire structure. From there, the user can adjust the brightness of the lamp using a touch sensitive control strip along the back of the lamp. As the user slides their hand down the side of the lamp, the light travels down the tube with their touch, creating an archway of light.
A print of this project was showcased at the Interior Design Show 2018 Offsite Event in Vancouver, Canada.
