Garbage in, Tables Out!


Here’s one more look at the Savannah Rails tables, thanks to photographer Pimprae Hiranpruek. Emergent Structures developed this collaborative project that aligned the design and fabrication skills of two SCAD Furniture Design classes taught by professor Aaron Heisler with the interest of The Creative Coast to feature locally sourced and made furniture in their 16,000 sq ft entrepreneurial center, the Creator’s Foundry.

Emergent Structures harvested materials from three of our trusted business partners: DIRTT Environmental Solutions’ Savannah manufacturing facility, IKEA’s Port Wentworth Distribution Center, and Rives E. Worrell, a JE Dunn Company. Once we collected excess mahogany slabs from IKEA, excess tempered glass from DIRTT, and excess rebar from Worrell, we gave the materials and the task of creating functional working platforms for creative entrepreneurs at the Creative Foundry, the talented SCAD students did the rest!

Many of these tables have already been sponsored by local businesses and individuals, but there are still some sponsorships available!!!! Get in touch with Kait at the Creative Coast to procure a sponsorship before the opportunities are gone.

Finally, if you’re curious about the signage above, the Maven Makers (new tenants of the Foundry!) made this sign for the Creators’ Foundry from materials that Debra and Chuck Caldwell donated to Emergent Structures through our innovative materialanthropy campaign.
