For Kelly Akashi’s 2019 exhibition, Figure Shifters, at Francois Ghebaly Gallery in Los Angeles we worked closely with the artist to design and build red oak frames and shelving units that utilize locking mitres on the corners and sliding dovetail joints on all of the shelving units. Some of the shelving units hold litho film prints in double-sided 3/8” face walnut frames with an X spline. This special detail, the first that we designed for any artist, is now an icon in our logo, and Kelly has graciously agreed to allow us to use the X spline on frames for other clients. All images here are Courtesy of the Artist, Tanya Bonakdar, New York and François Ghebaly, Los Angeles. Photos of 2D works: Robert Wedemeyer, photos of 3D works: Marten Elder
