When considering the interior for their new space in the East Bank tower, Tucker-Ellis wanted to create an environment as unique and special as its location. The job was tasked to ASD, an Atlanta-based firm with a 50-year history of creating unique interiors with a sustainable bend. One of the key communal areas in the Tucker-Ellis suite was the break room / café space. ASD’s Margaret Nysewander envisioned a space that would foster interaction and balance the sophistication of the firm with the history of Cleveland. To help achieve this, she called on Reclaimed Cleveland.
Ms. Nysewander met with Reclaimed Cleveland’s design team including David Meyers, Aaron Gogolin, and Deej Lincoln to discuss concepts for the space. Her idea was to use salvaged material for a large communal table, café tables, and a coffee table. As part of the design process, Ms. Nysewander along with Tucker-Ellis’ David Hargis toured Reclaimed Cleveland’s 40,00 square foot warehouse of inventory that includes a variety of salvaged lumber from factories, homes, and commercial structures and over 4,000 hand-made wood sand-casting foundry forms.
The delivered products included a 86” x 39” wood top communal table with a custom “waterfall’ blackened steel base, a group of café tables with modified industrial tri-pod bases, and a 46” diameter glass-top foundry pattern coffee table. Each piece has an inlaid laser-etched “coin” that includes the address for where the material is sourced.
