  • Leimanis & Ricard Concrete Kitchen — et al. - Challenged with designing a seamless transition between new kitchen and existing loft, layout constraints were seen as opportunities to introduce aesthetic and functional details in the concrete, used as a structural framework and finish material.Key moments and details throughout the kitchen compliment the over arching principle of old and new. Examples include an integrated wine storage that can be seen as you enter their home, concrete indentations that channel water back to sink, and a gas range set into the concrete counter-top which maintains cohesion between kitchen functions.The precision of manufactured geometric patterns found in tiles and cabinetry is contrasted with both natural patterns that result from curing concrete and the exposed knots and textures of wood elements.

Future iterations are in development composed from cast or formed plastic offering a more affordable price point.Re:View Contemporary Fine Art Gallery

  • Lean — et al. - In collaboration with industrial designer William Lee; LEAN is a sculptural yet simple piece designed to bring purpose to a universally under-utilized space; the corner. The versatile piece stands alone as a sculptural element, but also has dual functionality as furniture. When upright in a corner, LEAN is a chair that gains structural support from its adjacent walls. Set on its side, it becomes a coffee table with negative spaces for books and magazines. Fabricated in plywood, LEAN comes in a two-tone color which reinforces its geometric shape. In metal, the thin sheets combine durability with elegance.William Lee

  • Drew - Works Great!

    I purchased the PureLyft Energy Stir Sticks for an upboost for my morning workouts. This is a caffeine stick that delivers 125 mg of caffeine and that equals 1 tall coffee. They are a zero calorie additive and the pack come with 6 sticks. It says no taste but I do detect a small taste of i was not looking for it I would have never tasted it. I used this for my marathon yesterday in a glass of cranberry juice and I it tasted fine and gave me the caffeine I needed to get going. I didn't have any side effects that I noticed so that good. I really did put me in the mind of how I feel after I drink a cup of coffee without being hot from the coffee. I would purchase again without hesitation. The caffeine is made from green coffee beans!

  • Mecca Girl - One is enough for Energy

    I will admit, I don't take this as directed or for it's intended purpose, which is weight loss. I take this strictly as an energy supplement and it works wonders! I take ONE before every work out and as needed throughout the day. I seldom ever take two at a time because one is potent enough for an energy boost. Once in a great while I'll double up if I'm really feeling sluggish. I cannot attest to any appetite suppression because I'm not taking as directed so maybe following the schedule and taking two at a time would work. Personally I would not want to take two at a time at regular intervals just because it would be a little too much stimulation.
