Products I’m Loving Right Now
I first saw this modern bench/sculpture at my friend’s apartment in Denver last month and immediately fell in love. He had beautifully arranged hardcover books and accessories amongst the interlocking loops of steel which gave the piece even more dimension. The gloss finish is literally the icing on the proverbial cake.
While recently visiting Cento Anni’s incredible wood shop in Holland, Michigan I spied a familiar design in their lobby! This geometric table base was designed by Renegade creative director, Jody Poole, and fabricated by Beer City Metal. The design is garnering attention of homeowners and orders have been coming in for what is quickly becoming a Renegade signature product. The modern base is paired perfectly with your choice of Cento Anni’s stunning live-edge slabs.
Yup, I’m still talking about it. At every customer visit to Steelcase, collaborative teams are intrigued by Flex Mobile Power. Just one of these slick design charging ports can charge up to three laptops all day before returning to it’s dock. And at under three pounds, take it with you wherever you work.
Steelcase is offering weekly CEUs on various topics through the month of April to keep your knowledge expanding while working at home.
If interested in attending, email me to be forwarded the calendar invite to log-on.
At the start of the call, participants will be asked to provide their AIA or IDCEC number via the chat function. After completion, certificates will be made available upon request.

Custer In The News
Meals in the hands of 100 laid off workers for 30 days. “Our goal was just to get this idea off the ground and provide some relief to those in need,” said Dave Levitt of Third Coast Development. Our work family at Custer is grateful for the opportunity to partner with Garage Bar to help support relief within the West Michigan community.
