DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
d:note

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Seating Adjacent to The Grand Piano

INSPIRATION:
We were given the task of relocating a former client to a new space. The new location was considerably smaller but still needed to house all of the original furnishings which included a baby grand piano. We also needed additional seating for entertainment purposes. Our goal was to add comfortable seating that complimented the piano without crowding the space. We drew inspiration from the curve of the piano and the fact that people are quick to gather around it, whether it is being played or not.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
d:note follows the contour of a grand or baby grand piano and includes a side-table to rest a drink while listening to music.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Individuals seem naturally drawn to the piano and pianist while playing. d:note offers the opportunity for a more intimate seating group near the piano. The sloping separation mimics the curves of the piano and creates two seats. It also makes it possible to incorporate a small side table.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started January 2009 in Chicago and a second installation was made in California September 2011.

PROFILE:
Having come to the knowledge of the beautiful proportions inherent in nature, we recognize the need to better understand these extraordinary geometries that surround us. They inspire our work and fuel our attempts to manifest these proportions in hopes of creating beautiful and functional designs. We attempt to address every detail of the design recognizing the relatedness of the smallest to the greatest detail in order to offer a unique and complete space/product. Just as the limitless proportion grows, it is evident the possibilities for good design are also limitless. When discussing our design approach with our clients and how our goals would work synergistically with theirs, it evokes an enthusiasm within our clients that additionally fuels our motivation to design.
