In 2011 we were approached by our friends at FBR—an Austin, Texas company specializing in festivals, bars and restaurants—to assist in designing new chairs and stools for the Star Bar. One of the owners of FBR also possesses a millwork and fabrication company and wished to explore the possibility of fabricating these items in house.
Ultimately we presented the best of these to our clients. In the end it was determined that its productive resources would be better used elsewhere. You will still find a couple of these in our renderings. Eventually, we plan on prototyping some version of the chairs in the diptych below.
