Optional Features / Art San Diego 2012

Mi-Workshop recently showcased work with Woodbury San Diego at Art San Diego’s 2012 Optional Features exhibition at the Balboa Park Activity Center. The intent of Art San Diego Contemporary Art Fair 2012 is to sound the increasingly blurred definitions of sculpture, furniture and installation at a time when the critical value of objects is under progressive scrutiny.

Optional Features exhibited projects that explored the realm of possibilities through individual studies of material, processes and technology. Mi-Workshop displayed a series of pieces that are reflective of ongoing geometric sculptural explorations. Check out some images of our exhibited work from the 4 day event below. Special Thanks to Ryan Goodwin and Clark Forrest.

Tables for Tots 08.09.12

Tables for Tots is a charity event to help raise money for the Ronald McDonald House Charities in San Diego. The event is open to all local architecture and design firms, with the idea of creatively designing and decorating tables, chairs, and any other deconstructed items to be exhibited and put up for auction.

This year, Mi-Workshop designed and fabricated a custom “Totrod” for the event. Check out a couple of shots of the hotrod in all of its pinstriped glory, as well a photo from the charity even itself.

Societe Brewing Company Grand Opening 06.30.12

Congratulations to Societe Brewing Company for a successful grand opening on Saturday, June 30. Also, great work to all who helped make the opening a great success; motherspongedesign, the mi-workshop crew at The Bakery, and all helping hands for their tireless efforts.

Both, afternoon, and evening sessions were jam packed with eager crowds, dressed fittingly for the occasion. The beer, the grub (provided by the amazing mihogastrotruck, were delicious, and the 1850s photo tent provided great entertainment and was a big hit!

Check out a few shots from the event.
