The World’s Oldest Textile Still Reigns

by Clockwork

Our office has always had a special place in our heart for felt and we’ve noticed the universal appreciation has grown immensely too. It was apparent at Neocon this month that every manufacturer has officially embraced the Felt movement; each offering their own rendition of felt products. It’s remarkable just how many design possibilities this simple textile can offer. Felt has undoubtedly become a designers dream, and for good reason.

Felt

noun

a kind of cloth made by rolling and pressing wool or another suitable textile accompanied by the application of moisture or heat, which causes the constituent fibers to mat together to create a smooth surface.

Fun Facts

  • Felt is quite possibly the oldest fabric known to man
  • Felt was discovered by St. Clement of Rome by accident
  • Felt is comprised of synthetic material with wool, just wool alone or synthetic material alone
  • Felt is non-woven, so it is incredibly easy to create and manipulate
  • Felt is water resistant
  • Felt can literally be planned anyway your creative heart desires…seriously

Below are a couple of our favorite felt products…

Client Highlight – Seyferth Blumenthal Harris

interior renovation in an existing office space…

SBH_01

Our relationship with Seyferth Blumenthal Harris (SBH) extends back 8 years to when we completed their previous office in a historically renovated structure.  The firm had grown significantly over the years and the design of the space remained of critical importance to the leadership team.

The challenge of the new space was to design a collaborative, efficient and attractive space that maximized their stellar views while holding true to the historical features of the building and provide a professional but slightly less formal layout.

The SBH leadership team sought an entry space that would instantly induce a state of calmness for their client’s upon arrival. To successfully achieve their vision, we were able to take full advantage of our diverse portfolio and draw inspiration from our hospitality projects across the globe.  The open collaborative space allows attorneys and support staff to come together and share ideas without having to reserve formal conference spaces. All of the finishes in the space were chosen to emphasize the firm’s culture, one of confidence but without pretense.

Acting as a trusted advisor, our team negotiated on behalf of SBH to ensure they received the highest quality possible at the lowest achievable cost. A simple exposed concrete floor and exposed ceilings through much of the circulation space allowed construction dollars to be spent where they could achieve the biggest impact.

Group Tour @ The Roasterie

by Clockwork

We spend each day caffeinating our office with the City of Fountains Roasterie blend, and of course taking the edge off with Dizzy Three.  So naturally, it made sense to plan our monthly staff after hour’s event touring the factory responsible for our habits…The Roasterie.

We are officially coffee snobs after an enlightening tour lead by Bean Baron himself, Mr. Danny O’Neill, and his talented Bean Hunter, Mr. John Ferguson.  Our trip was hands down one of our favorite group events yet. #KansasCity is lucky to have a quality brand like The Roasterie in our downtown.
