MOLOKAʻI STANDING DESKS


After losing a big mango tree, Puʻu o Hoku Ranch commissioned us to design and build two standing desks for their newly completed office space.

MATERIAL –MANGO SLABS WITH BEECH HARDWOOD BASE

DIMENSIONS –  9' L x 37" W x 41" H

COMPLETED – JULY 2019

DESIGN

2-3 weeks


Our goal was to come up with a design that allowed the mango slabs to shine, while still reliably serving the office's demands.

As with every custom piece, We started with a few different design directions to explore, ultimately settling on a constructionist language that would contrast the organic lines of the slab.

FABRICATION

4-5 weeks


Armed with the CAD model from the design phase, we set about fabricating the two bases at our original studio in Hāliʻimaile, Maui using all traditional joinery methods.

Once the bases were completed, we were able to boat them over to Molokaʻi where they were finally united with the mango slab tops.
