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.

In honor of the new year, we would love to share some information about a project truly defined a lot of 2014 for the TGM team. Earlier in the year we were approached by Aaron Taylor Harvey from Airbnb, and began discussing the possibility of creating custom furnishing for a new call center here in Portland. Those discussions eventually developed into a full collaboration between Aaron, his talented partner Rachael, and our team of designers/fabricators.
This project involved creating an entirely new line of products for their new workspace. The overall scope of the project fluctuated over time to fit their needs, but in the end it provided an exciting challenge for us company-wide. Our process involved a lot of initial research, and learning on-the-fly/pulling from past experiences. We were able to augment our operations + process through necessity + organic growth, which in turn led to us really discovering our production abilities + limitations. It also created a cohesive goal that really seemed to stimulate our internal talents + passions.
Airbnb + it's team of architects/designers had precise standards, which is something that we were incredibly appreciative of. We worked closely with them to ensure those standards were met + exceeded throughout the entire process. We enjoyed thinking about home use vs. busy commercial office use, picking the right density of seat cushion foam, + we absolutely loved all of their fabric choices. We utilized both traditional + modern fabrication techniques, which included everything from custom welded steel brackets to laser cut acrylic panels for integrated charging stations.
It was amazing for our team to be able to grow + learn while creating for a company that definitely thinks differently than most. They were continually supportive of our design choices, and in turn had some incredible input themselves! To see the products from casual sketches to a beautiful + functional piece of design was the best part of our year.
The final implementation of the work was astounding. The office is buzzing with activity, yet it maintained a comfortable atmosphere. Observing our work + the work of other local designers working in concert with it's intended audience was an heart-warming experience that we hope to recreate again.
Please check out some of the recent press about the space:
Photographs of our work + our process will be posted in separate posts!
