I am happy to announce that after a year of what was supposed to be a temporary site, I have finally had some time to work on the official Knife & Saw website and it launched this weekend and is ready for public viewing.
With the new site, it should be much easier for you to see my work, learn more about Knife & Saw and find out how to purchase Knife & Saw products. I hope you find this to be the case. The blog portion of the site will still exist, but will now be found at this address. If you have a minute, I hope you can check it out.
Thanks and hope you are all well,
I found out this weekend that the Bike Shelf won 2 awards at the Dwell on Design Conference Modern World Awards. It won in the “Play” category and it also took home the overall People’s Choice Award. You can see the Bike Shelf accepting its award above.
I just wanted to thank Dwell first of all for putting me in the magazine and then nominating me for this award. It is very flattering to even be considered along side these great designers and their products, let alone to be chosen for the award. Even more flattering is to be chosen by all of you for the People’s Choice award. Thank you so much to all of you who voted for me and spread the word, as well as for your overall support. It means a lot. I hope I can continue to make work that you enjoy and follow.
Thanks again to you and congrats to all of the other designers who were nominated as well, there are some great designs out there well worthy of the awards.
Please go here for the most updated information and purchasing options for The Bike Shelf. This site you are currently on is no longer being updated, there is a new Knife & Saw website.
I have some great news on the waiting time for the Bike Shelf. I am finally getting help with production and will have a large run finished in 4-6 weeks… hopefully more on the 4 week side. From this point on, if you order a Bike Shelf, you will be shipped one come end of July. And, from that point on, if you order and pay for a Bike Shelf, you will be shipped one immediately.
I know there are some of you that have been waiting for a while already and I apologize for that but I have had many orders and only 2 hands unfortunately. I hope you understand. For those of you already on the list, you should have been sent an email about payment and you will be top priority once the Shelves are finished. If you did not receive an email, it is most likely because your email was input improperly in the form, or perhaps my email was sent to your spam folder.
For the rest of you who would like to put in orders now, please go here to make payment and you will be shipped out your Bike Shelf as soon as it is ready.
Thanks again for all of your interest in the Bike Shelf and the patience of many of you who have been waiting.
Hello all. I wanted to let you know about some exciting news regarding the Bike Shelf. A few weeks ago, the Bike Shelf went on display at 10 Design Within Reach stores around the country. At stores in Austin, Berkeley, Cambridge, Charlotte, Dallas, Los Angeles, Miami Beach, New Orleans, Portland and Scottsdale, the Bike Shelf is holding up a bike from DWR Founder Rob Forbes’ new bike company, Public Bikes. I’m honored to be in the company of such great designers and furniture at these stores, and I think the Bike Shelf and Public Bikes look great together. If you are near any of these stores and would like to check out the Bike Shelf in person, you should stop by. They are not being sold through DWR, please still contact me directly if you are interested.
The Bike Shelf has been chosen as a finalist in the first ever Dwell Modern World Awards. The winners will be announced at this years Dwell on Design conference on June 24th. I am very honored to be even mentioned in the same context as the other designers in my category, let alone up for this award. If you have a minute, take a look at the other finalists and if you think the Bike Shelf should win, please vote for it. It is in the “Play” category.
Here is some info on the Awards:
“We are proud to announce the first ever Modern World Awards and Ceremony this year at Dwell on Design. Every day we scour the wide world of design for the best products, objects, and furniture for our magazine and website. And now we are very happy to stamp our seal of approval on our favorite 25 designs from the last year and a half at the first Modern World Awards exhibit and Ceremony.
The awards will be handed out in a special presentation at Dwell on Design at 5:00 on June 24th. If you can’t make it, don’t fret. The 25 designs will be exhibited on the show floor throughout the three days of Dwell on Design.
Taken directly from the pages of Dwell, the five finalists we’ve selected in in five different categories best encompass our take on how the modern world, and how good design improves it. Whether at work or play, at rest or on the go, these are the designs that matter most. As usual, we’re looking for innovation, clever use of materials, sustainable design, and that je ne sais quois that makes us say, “I gotta get one of those.”
A friend approached me a while back about making her a coffee table. Then I had two children… my son and a Bike Shelf. So, luckily she was patient and after a bit of a wait, I finally got her the table she had been waiting for.
