Black Forest Zendo completed

by Mathieu

The installation of the tan platforms was probably the most rewarding work of the project. Finally we could see things coming together. I let the pictures speak for themselves.

Note how the pegs are not yet in place, the wedges are not trimmed either and the spacers still sit between the boards. At that point I had to go back for another round of trimwork. JvN_9299JvN_9413JvN_9454JvN_9456JvN_9471

And finally with the Noguchi lamps in place.

    Dear Mathieu, This work completely conveys a real sense of balance, beauty and also peace. I think that it will be a wonderful place for meditation. Take care and all the very best.

    Hi Herbert. A lot of thought was given to the design to create a space with minimal distraction that invites a quite mind. A lot of people pick up on it so I guess we achieved our intention.


We love to hear your thoughts..
