Bodhi - Samples Drawers

A boutique apartment development located in Upper Mount Gravatt, a suburb of Brisbane, Australia, the Bodhi Apartments are a new project from successful Gold Coast developer, Adam Lacey. Featuring an assortment of one, two and three bedroom apartments in a bustling area, the Bodhi Apartments will also include a landscaped, ground floor barbecue area and recreation space, as well as secure parking and an open-plan living design.

As a part of the design stage, we were contacted to create custom designed, portable display suite sample boards for the Bodhi development, made to showcase the various materials used in the design of the apartments – from the wall tiles to laminates, timber flooring finishes, wall paint and carpet.

Typically designed to be fairly large and heavy, we decided to utilise a sleek, double drawer box design for ease of use. With trays that can be pulled out completely, we also included captions printed below each sample so everything was clearly identifiable. Custom hand bound with black leather and laser cut UV printed acrylic internal elements, we also love the subtle black-on-black design, which was made to include a direct image on the top for an added branding element.

SB Architects - Custom Timber Presentation Folders and Display Box

With global locations across San Francisco, Miami and Shenzhen, SB Architects has been an international leader in designing resorts and hotels around the world, in addition to destination communities, custom homes and large scale, multi-family urban mixed-use projects since 1960.

Recent (and prestigious) SB Architects projects include the luxurious Kimpton Seafire Resort & Spa in Grand Cayman, The Lodges at Calistoga Ranch in Napa Valley, and La Estrella in stunning Cuzco, Peru, with many more in exotic locations like Puerto Rico, Boca Raton, Montenegro and Costa Del Sol.

Tasked with creating a custom display box and presentation folder design, we chose sleek solid New Guinea rosewood for the custom joinery finished box design. Made to perfectly hold several items of various sizes, including an iPad, presentation folder, phone and even virtual reality goggles, our skilful team members also included a stainless steel inlay both inside the top of the lid and front cover of the folder, perfectly finished to align, leaving it smooth to the touch.

Adding a unique touch to the presentation folder, we finished it with handbound leather details and a leather pocket on the inside, perfectly holding the booklet inside. The finished design is sleek, smart and fully-functional, and SB Architects was very pleased with the outcome.

For more information or a custom display box request, please get in touch and we’d be happy to discuss the possibilities.

Stone & Wood - Custom Timber Folders

Here are some nice custom timber folders created for the guys over at Stone and Wood .

Hand Bound Portfolio and Case

Here’s a cool custom portfolio created with a feature we haven’t done before; a clear window on top. This allows the viewer to look into the custom leather wrapped cover and look in on the contents inside. It has a stylish black print on matte black acrylic with sleek mechanical spine system. We love this subtle and sophisticated looking folio and hope you do to!

 

Hand Bound Leather and Timber Portfolio

It’s the details that count, and this is far from short of those.

The internal box is custom joinery finished solid Australian timber with dovetail joins, to perfectly accommodate the portfolio within. The lid of the box is a custom pattern that was laser cut and slides open to reveal the inside. The outer shell is a custom leather bound folder that meets in the middle with a couple of gorgeous handles with tassels for a bit of flair. We created a smaller leather bound box to ‘roll’ open to reveal two usb’s and a custom made coin as a ‘leave-behind’ box.

As this was made for a portfolio, we’re sure that this will make a huge impact with whoever looks through it.

Macrostone Custom Display Box

Founded to provide quality, innovative natural stone products across Australia, Macrostone has built an all-encompassing community of architects, landscape designers, interior designers, distributors, builders, trade contractors and retail customers with a love for unique stone designs in both commercial and residential spaces.

Briefed with creating a Custom Display Box, we crafted a sleek rectangular box, perfectly fitting the various samples for easy showing. As a branded addition the project, we added a custom sliding lid with the Macrostone logo, including an easy-to-slide handle and modern design.

Display Centre Floor Plans Folio

This was a fun project we collaborated with Robina Group on for their Botanique Development. The aim was to design and produce a creative and portable floor plan folio that the agents could take with them.

4-robina-floor_plans-custom-box-uv-printed-layered-2016-print

We decided to make it out of a hardwood ply with the plans printed directly onto the timber. Then manufactured with layered elements to create an interlocking slide system. The whole system is also designed so that it is interchangeable. It turned out as a really cool way to display their floor plans in a unique and portable unit.

North End Boardriders Presentation Box

Originally established in 1976, the North End Boardriders is well known as one of the Gold Coast’s most prestigious and longest running surf clubs. From its scenic home base in front of the Southport Surf Life Saving Club to its long list of local legends and rippers, including Joe Engel, Wayne McKewen, Michael ‘Munga’ Barry, Scott Wildin, Dave ‘Rasta’ Rastovich and more, the North End Boardriders have definitely earned their spot among the most respected surf clubs in Australia.

In celebration of their 40th anniversary, the North End Boardriders created a 150+ page book commemorating the past, present and future of their Gold Coast club staple. With an array of rare photographs, interviews and more, the book was worthy of a customised presentation befitting of its prized content.

For the night of the North End Boardriders 40th Anniversary Celebration, we created custom built, handmade timber presentation boxes, each with a printed timber face with leather-bound spine. With an internal tray customised to fit the printed book, it’s safe to say that we honoured these local legends to the best of our ability.

Pacificus - Custom Presentation Folder

Working with different materials and techniques is kind of our bread and butter. So we were more than happy to have a crack at this presentation folder for the guys over at Oliver Hume and are very pleased with the outcome.

The design of the cover is inspired by the work of Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava. It just takes one look at his work and the influences are made apparent.

Timber Presentation Folder for Northern Territory

We were approached by Publicis Mojo to produce these custom timber presentation folders for the Northern Territory. Made from a Northern Australian Flooded Gum timber veneer with a print directly onto the timber. We custom designed and manufactured the outside cover and internal tray which held a printed brochure. The final look was a sleek and functional presentation folder.

Custom Timber Menus and Chopping Boards for Cliffords

Custom timber menus and laser etched chopping boards for Cliffords Grill and Lounge. The custom menus were made from a hardwood timber with a black leather spine. We kept the Cliffords branding going by laser etching their serving boards.
