This project added a new dimension to the capabilities of Modularem.  It is a concrete and steel kitchen island commissioned by Amazon inc. and installed in their MyHabit photo studio.  Modularem collaborated with Amazon designers on the interior design of the break room and the island reflects the intended aesthetic theme developed in that process.  The board-formed concrete and steel lend a warm permanence to the space through a careful expression of the wood used to form the slabs, highlighted through an innovative multi-step staining and sealing process.  The casting process, carried out entirely by Modularem, is therefore inherently evident in the final form.   Multiple Amazon employees have reported being pleasantly surprised to discover it is made of concrete, a fact revealed only after close observation or physical contact, proving the experience produced to be engaging and provocative.
