Thanks to Callie Engstrom with FME for the photo of our Wrong Side of the Tracks Conference Table installed in its new home. It’s not easy to see all of the detail on the table (detail shots here as well as an assembly video), but it just goes to show how well our work can fit in virtually any setting.
Callie and Eric Ibsen at FME along with Janet Rogers from Stacy & Witbeck were part of the team that designed and built the new world headquarters right on SF Bay for the light rail engineering firm Stacy & Witbeck.
We were thrilled to be included in their plans and see the project happen. This is just one of a total of three pieces that they installed - 2 conference tables and our signature Sleepers Coffee Table for the lobby.
Streamliner Conference Table Assembly Video
Here is the previously promised video of us assembling the second conference table we created in conjunction with FME Architecture and Design. They designed the building and commissioned this table for the new Stacy & Witbeck headquarters in San Francisco, CA.
It had to be easy to ship, so you can see the vegan redneck and me putting together the conference table - we even get one rail in the wrong place and still make it happen in under 10 minutes. Not too bad for a couple of old guys.
Streamliner Conference Table
This is the second of the two conference tables for Stacy & Witbeck as directed by FME Architecture + Design. Both of the tables are nearly ten feet long, and you can find the other conference table here.
This was a collaborative effort with Eric and Callie from FME asking for some revisions to the original design that quite frankly, I was hesitant about at first, but I wound up really liking the result.
We used some beech and hickory timbers and a dark stain to give this its distinguished look and strong profile. As with the other conference table, it is built with an extensive system of cable runs to conceal all of the hi-tech AV system.
The whole thing breaks down into 11 pieces and assembles in such a short amount of time with just two people that you have to see it to believe it. Speaking of which , I should post the assembly video next.
Wrong Side of the Tracks Conference Table
Had the pleasure of making three tables for the new Stacy & Witbeck headquarters on San Francisco Bay. They are THE light rail engineering firm on the West Coast. Fantastic folks to work with all around! Many thanks to Janet at Stacy & Witbeck and to the architects Eric (a fellow OSU grad - Go Buckeyes!) and Callie with FME for the opportunity to do this project!
The concept is based around a railroad trestle bridge and executed using a mixture of oak and hickory timbers.
The planked top is oak crossties cut into 1” thick boards. The rail that supports it is inverted to give the effect that you are looking up at the tracks from below like you would from under a bridge.
In keeping with the bridge theme, we have a trestle running the length of the table and it is attached to the legs using railroad bridge bolts.
And we made it pretty hi-tech, too - a state of the art AV system is integrated with cable runs throughout the table. There are two microphones that will sit in the middle of the glass tops with their wiring completely concealed and ALL wiring runs through the structure and down to the floor.
Had so much fun making this one and got lots of help from Rick Turner (the vegan redneck), Pop, Rob, Zach, Erica and many others who made it happen.
The whole thing asembles in under ten minutes with just two people, and it disassembled for shipping just as quickly. I will post that video later.
And we did another completely different conference table for them as well…oops…sorry to tease. We’ll save that one for a later post.
