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.

"I am not attracted to straight angles or to the straight line, hard and inflexible, created by man. I am attracted to free-flowing, sensual curves. The curves that I find in the mountains of my country, in the sinuousness of its rivers, in the waves of the ocean, and on the body of the beloved woman."
1907 - 2012
Take a look at Manitoga, the home of the designer Russel Wright. The house is decades old but you can see ideas that are still in full force today - especially that green roof. And take a look at our Conant Ball coffee table by Russel Wright!

Hans J. Wegner
The works of Danish born architect and furniture designer, Hans Jørgen Wegner, exhibit a love of natural materials and a studied understanding of the necessity of furniture as a marriage of function and beauty.
In his youth, Wegner developed an affinity for the material properties of wood, working as an apprentice to respected cabinetmaker H.F. Stahlberg. This experience instilled in Wegner an understanding of the tectonics and craft of traditional Danish carpentry. This understanding of workmanship was supplement with a formal design education when Wegner entered the Copenhagen School of Arts & Crafts in his early twenties. After receiving his architectural degree in 1938 he began working with renown Danish designers Arne Jacobsen and Erick Møller before establishing his own practice in 1943.
Throughout his career Hans Wegner was responsible for over 500 unique chair designs, making him the most prolific Danish designer to date. Perhaps his most well known design, the Round Chair, gained international notoriety in 1949 when Interiors magazine declared it “the world’s most beautiful chair”. The beauty of Wegner’s genius is seen in his designs as the manifestation of a remarkable combination of designer and craftsmen.
