M.C. Escher himself would have been impressed with this project. The goal for this project was to create a staircase that also appeared to be upside down. The project, located at The Smyth Hotel in Tribeca, was centered around the bar and led to the downstairs lounge.  The Smyth Hotel is highly acclaimed for providing both hotel accommodations and upscale residences with a distinguished modern appeal. If you ever get the chance to go see the project, keep your eyes open, David Bowie might just be walking down the stairs singing Within You.

Sprinkles Cupcakes in the NY Times

Who made the dot screen at Sprinkles newest NYC location. That is right. TMR did! Each circle is fabricated from steel, water jet cut 1/4″ diameter circles, that are plug welded together and sandwiched by two pieces of aluminum. The pieces were then powder coated with seven different colors and baked in the oven for seven heats by our good friends at Carter Spray. Sprinkles was also recently featured in an Inc. magazine article about the cupcake craze sweeping the nation. TMR also fabricated the small tables you see in the article and the stainless steel walk of fame stars that are in the concrete. Sweet!

 

This was a fun project and a lot of work but well worth it for the phenomenal cupcakes they make. I highly recommend a visit.

The fuel for the fire has to be stored somewhere. These two 9′ tall x 10′ wide racks should do the job. Fabricated out of 3/8″ blackened steel plate, these racks can hold enough wood to incinerate just about anything.
