Lower East Side, Manhattan, New York
Funny Garbage, an office for a small tech startup, was one of our first projects. With no budget to speak of, we scavenged lower Manhattan for parts, and came up with a system for walls and shelving that was made from salvaged industrial shelving, scrap perforated metal, raw tile backer board, and various bits of stuff we found on Canal Street.
Despite the nonexistent budget, we were able to produce an space that expressed the ad-hoc office culture, and served them well. They took the same system and deployed it throughout numerous offices as the company expanded.
