Walnut Conference Table for GBD Architects
We worked with local GBD Architectural Firm to create a custom walnut conference table for their office renovation in the heart of the Pearl District.
The standing height conference table was intended to streamline workflow and provide a gathering place for their talented team of architects. This 10-foot table features over-sized finger joints.

Collaboration with Columbia City Bouquet
When we were approached by Emily Kopca, co owner of the awesome floral design shop Columbia City Bouquet, stationed in Seattle, we knew the collaboration was going to a be a bright and beautiful one.
Their new space is their second shop, South Lake Union Bouquet situated in the ground level of the Amazon headquarters in Seattle.
The goal: to outfit their new space with beautiful but minimal designs that will be good for staging, storage, and most importantly showcasing their floral arrangements and plants!
What was needed: custom shelving in the form of open faced credenzas, stackable shelves, mounted shelves, benches and tables. With their vision in mind, we were up to the task of bringing it to life. Check out some of the items they purchased here:
See some photos below of their space!
So! When you are up in Seattle, make sure to stop by Columbia City Bouquet's beautiful new shop, located on 7th Ave South Union Lake Bouquet and treat yourself or your loved one to something beautiful!

Custom TGM B-Ball Hoops for The Trailblazers Coach Terry Stotts
The Story Behind the Hoop: Celebrating 300th Wins for Coach Stotts with Custom B-Ball Hoops from our TGM Studioline
It was a fateful day when Bimma came into the showroom to discuss hosting an event, I knew our encounter was the catalyst for future collaborations and connections. Bimma is a Global Product Manager at Adidas, as well as founder of Claima Convos (an interview series featuring underrepresented entrepreneurs in PDX).

A few weeks after our initial introduction, Bimma had the insight to connect us with Todd Adams, the brand development manager for the Trailblazers. What an exciting connection! This was shortly after we had released our customizable TGM B-Ball Hoops.
We were made aware of the upcoming milestone victory for longtime standing successful Coach Stotts. His 300th Win with the Trailblazers.
January 18th we fabricated three Custom Basketball hoops for Terry Stotts, head coach, Neil Oshey, executive and manager for the team, and executive Harry Glickman.
We had the privilege of making these custom mini basketball hoops that now hang proudly in their respective offices.
See below for the art, renderings, and final product.
These hoops are done in black walnut, with a black powdercoated rim, and black net. Custom art work and engraving available.

Designing the Pollinate Pitch Experience
The last few months have been massive for the team at The Good Mod, with many big new projects secured, some fully underway, and one of our largest ones to-date just completed: the conference room and pitch stage for Pollinate, a fast-growing interactive branding and advertising agency in Portland, which was just recently voted 2015 Advertising Age Northwest Small Agency of the Year.

The prompt was straightforward: develop lighting and a conference table to seat 15 people comfortably in a fairly small space of 21 feet by 18 feet. Goal was to provide an arena for multi-directional presentation that navigates both digital and analog work, while delivering an intriguing experience for Pollinate’s most important clients.
Taking inspiration from the energetic aesthetic of the agency, lead designer Brock Odalovich and owner-designer Spencer Staley decided to push Pollinate’s momentum to the extreme: surrounding the presenter with crystalline slabs of sheet metal visually breaking out of the ground, the design’s dramatic vortex explodes under a sci-fi inspired spotlight.
The table’s major challenge was to seat that many people with enough leg room in such tight space, and identifying the need for maximum floor space for multi-directional presentation. Lead designer Brock Odalovich's solution was a horseshoe-style design with a base-less cantilever table that is sturdy and still allows for enough floor space around the presentation pit.
The base was created out of 1200 pounds of individually laser cut and hand-welded asymmetrical pieces of sheet metal. Special feat was the integral joinery in order to make the table base break down for a standard residential elevator. The tabletop iced the cake: 15 pieces of differently adjoined veneer pieces framed by oak hardwood edging visually extend the cascading facets of the steel base.
Hovering above, Spencer Staley’s lighting design extends the crystalline language of the table with five individually shaped pyramidal boxes clustered into a star-shaped chandelier. Exploding into sharp angles, the 300 pound LED light piece is capped with removable shade panels covered in technical light diffusing fabric—all results of exciting new experiments in the use of materials.
"From the initial brainstorming session to the final installation we couldn’t have ask for a better experience working with The Good Mod. The creativity they brought into our showcase conference room leaves a powerful impression on our clients as they come to visit. We can’t wait to work with them on another project!"
