Happy MiesGivings

We hope you don’t have any misgivings about MiesGivings. This year Fernau & Hartman and friends celebrated a Mies-themed Thanksgiving at the F&H office, featuring Mies van der Rohe’s IIT Campus Pastelon and glimpses of Modernism in Jacques Tati’s 1958 “Mon Oncle”—although with F&H’s Holiday Sangria, we’d say "more is more."

The Leftover Table II

Fernau & Hartman has designed custom furniture for a number of residential projects in the past and is pleased to enter production of a current project, the "Leftover" Table II. In collaboration with Berkeley-based Swerve Co., F&H revisits our earlier "Leftover" Table design, which repurposed unused "Finply" wood pieces to create contrasting adjustable leaves. Beginnings of the project below:

House in Dry Creek Valley featured in Nature Framed by Eva Hagberg

Eva Hagberg's recent book Nature Framed (The Monacelli Press) explores the blending of indoor and outdoor spaces. Fernau & Hartman's House in Dry Creek Valley, designed for an artist and writer, provides outdoor live and work spaces on a site that offers 365-degree views of the surrounding Sonoma County vineyards. F&H is pleased to be featured alongside other Bay Area and North America works by firms such as Allied Works, Anderson Anderson, Toshiko Mori, Tom Kundig, Marlon Blackwell and others.

See it in Dwell and The Monacelli Press.
