DETAIL: VINTAGE DISPLAY
The idea was simple, to display an array of vintage milk cans within Clover Stornetta's new reception space. The historic and hidden-away milk cans are fantastic and varied - they didn't need much added, just an opportunity to see the light. Starting with a quick sketch and a simple diagram, the idea became possible in collaboration with the steel fabricator Schnitzkraft and the client. Schnitzkraft realized the design, composing the 3 custom shelving units from bent, raw plate steel and salvaged redwood fence boards. The shelving is materially connected, yet maintains a more subtle expression than the cans, in order to play the supporting role. We are happy to see the installation complete today and to give these artifacts another life. Be sure to check out Schnitzkraft's fabrication work: www.schnitzkraft.com.
