Elevator Phone

A custom elevator phone. The client needed a phone that didn’t reduce the interior volume of the unusually small elevator.

A custom user interface with speaker, microphone, and keypad to replace the traditional handset.

All reports are positive and the phone has turned out as essential for this remote location. On several occasions, during the winter, a passenger has been trapped when a circuit breaker pops due to cold, thickened hydraulic oil. I’ll bet someone loves this phone more than we can appreciate!

African Artifacts

The project: Design and fabricate display stands for some African Tribal Artifacts.

The customer called these “cotton needles”. The look similar however, the differences created a challenge. Since they would be displayed as a pair, the design had to accommodate the differences but the stands needed to look identical.

The solution was to incorporate the copper coated wire element to hold and support the darkened part of the needles so that it could be easily adjusted.

The round base made a statement almost like an exclamation point!
