We are happy to announce the completion of Phase I for our Carriage House Project in Providence, RI! Originally build in 1875, the ground floor space had not been developed and contained remnants from the original horse stalls.
Phase I consists of a flexible gallery/studio space with pivoting walls to allow for more intimate rooms to develop within the larger space. Here are a few detail images of this project...
As a part of DESIGNWEEK RI and in celebration of DESIGNxRI sponsoring the Providence Design Catalyst Grant, we will be hosting an event at our new shop space, Elmwood Studios.
Please come and see our new space that we share with Studio Endo, Nest Homeware and Work-Shop Design Studio.
Friday, September 25 5-9pm

We are excited to have been interviewed by Providence Business News after their attending the final Providence Design Catalyst award ceremony.
Thanks again to the Providence Design Catalyst Grant Program, DESIGNxRI and all of our sponsors!
Desperately in need of a new fence and gate for our new pup, Nola, we decided this could be the time to do some design and research of how to weave wood. In this case, we didn't have much time and knew that this was temporary, so we built a quick frame and started laying out the lath in patterns. The weave was something that we had been talking about for awhile, but it really started to mean something when we needed some structural support in the long diagonals of lath.
What we like about this version is the view from straight on creates a solid opaqueness, showing texture without revealing what's behind. However, from the oblique perspective, there are glimpses of beyond.
More versions to come!
The Butcher Block and Blackened Steel Kitchen Counter is going in soon at the Carriage House Project. This counter is at two levels. An antique two-bowl sink will sit inside the higher level counter. Four inches below, another counter cantilevers to provide a lower desk-height level. The steel reveals a hint of the construction while providing structural support as well as backsplash.
Oblique Studio is honored to be among the 17 small businesses to receive the Providence Design Catalyst grant.
Thank you to DESIGNxRI, Rhode Island School of Design, the City of Providence, Social Enterprise Greenhouse and to all of our supporters.
