Patina & Protect – I love the efficient use of the squeegee; not a typical metalworking tool, lol

Brass tables fresh from the sandblaster. Properly prepared and ready to take patina. We have really enjoyed working with designer Sinclair Scott Smith and Dolce Vita Shoes to put the final touches on their new showroom in the Puck Building. Look for more progress images soon.

For the past several weeks we have been showcasing our products at the Brooklyn Flea Market. Located at One Hanson Place in downtown Brooklyn (take the subway to the Atlantic Avenue station), the Brooklyn Flea Market features countless local vendors and an impressive assortment of delicious food stands. Rachel Gehlert, TMR’s raging and engaging master of all trades, will not stop until she has found Anthi’s greek food stand.

TMR’s products are available at the market. The products that are available range from, but are not limited to, MetroCard Belt Buckles, Steel-ring bowls, Side-Wired Tables, Swarf Tables, and weekly creations by Scott Behr that are exclusive to the weekend event. Some recent creations have consisted of mini diamond do-whatever-you-want-it-to’s, steel-ring necklaces, and found furniture that transforms from trash to treasure with added steel accents.

Here is a video that our friend James Jones shot for us one weekend. Check out the video and then clear your Saturday and Sunday schedule for some Brooklyn trinket-treating and delicious food finding.

Brooklyn Modern Interview May 2009

Design, Events, Material Process


Please check out our interview with Gerald Lastarza of Brooklyn Modern .

“At this past Bklyn Designs, there was always a large crowd or a news crew investigating Scott Behr’s SideWired table. The concept behind the piece is important to anyone who lives in the Wired Age: organize and hide the wires of electrical devices by plugging them into the table. Finally, no more mess, no more tripping over wires, and no more knocking laptops onto floors.”
