Here is another experiment in form using my beloved hollow core door. Available at Artifact Creative Recycle in Portland, Oregon
Another bench experiment using exposed hollow core door laminations for a striking top surface. The inside honeycomb structure all sliced up and then re-laminated yields a natural and wonderful texture full of that “musicality” that I love.
With debt to George Nelson’s classic…This is one exercise in exposing the guts of a hollow core door by laminating strips together into a very strong platform that, like the original inspiration by Mr. Nelson, is suitable as a bench or table.
I am passionate about all things sustainable, and I just plain despise waste. So naturally, I am deeply inspired by the Rebuilding Center in North Portland, and amazed that they daily divert 8 tons of used building materials from the Portland metro waste stream. Sojourner Shelves are my contribution to upcycling one common discard that sparked my imagination. Hollow-core bi-fold doors are flat, lightweight geometric slabs of unwanted, but beautiful wood veneer. I gently reshape them with minimal cutting waste into handsome, strong, modern storage solutions. I give them a little love and they give much back in return. Can you feel it…?

The S1 Tower is light enough for bike delivery over the short distance to the store. This lightness is an amazing bonus considering the solid, rigid quality of each Sojourner piece.
