One of our favorite holiday displays that we built for a @pier1 pop-up shop that the legendary @MariahCarey opened! Who else has the urge to go play Mariah’s Merry Christmas album now?

Elaborate #set we built for the @Digitas #NewFront conference in The Refectory at the The High Line Hotel in #NYC in 2015.
Our set matched seamlessly into the existing decor. Can you tell?

Set we brought to life from Roger Hanna’s design for a production of La Traviata at Mannes Opera. For the fireplace, we used a technique that is popular in theatre sets called “forced perspective” which is used to trick the audience’s eye. We also split it so that the top could fly out during scene changes.

A fun, functional set we built for experiential agency Mother New York for BBC America’s TV show No Kitchen Required. This time, the chefs were dropped into the “concrete jungle” right in the heart of the Flatiron District and yes-- they cooked USDA squirrel and raven on the grills we built.

We built this set for a Manhattan School of Music production of the seminal American opera “Street Scene” (book: Elmer Rice, libretto: Langston Hughes, score: Kurt Weill).

Not to brag, but to brag: the set got applause as soon as the curtain rang up!

The lobby and apartments were functional-- one had a breakaway window gag that shattered into the street in Act II. It was set in a foam padded frame so it could be replaced every night.

The original production won Weill the first ever ever Tony Award for Best Original Score.

This wreath was damaged beyond repair in transit to us.
Not to worry! They gave us the original sketch and we redid it in time for the show!
The wreath was part of a collaborative exhibit benefiting breast cancer research by Holiday House Design Show and Forty One Madison The #NYTableTop market also had designs by KARIM RASHID, Luca Andrisani Architect, Jaime Walters Interiors, Match, ARC, @Christofle, Alessi, Portmeirion Group, @Wedgwood, Bordallo Pinheiro, Hampton Forge, and Mottahedeh #madebydaddy-o

There once was a forest in the Brooklyn Navy Yard , behind Admirals Row. Proof? These racoon tracks, fossilized in a sidewalk. #tbt

Check out these benches we made for @dsdestinynyc’s #DreamShipDestiNY total immersion augmented reality. They nest for storage. “Brilliant” (said our client)

Happy Closing to Kathy Acker: Who Wants to Be Human All the Time at Performance Space New York! The set for co-curator Bjarne Melgaard's contribution - a puppet show staring the leather-clad Kathy Acker - was designed and #BuiltByDaddyO. So glad we got to be a part of this tribute to a cultural icon.

Check out this The New York Times articles about the show: https://www.nytimes.com/2018/03/07/t-magazine/art/bjarne-melgaard-kathy-acker.html

So much of what we make is ephemeral - built to perfection, immortalized on film or in print, then disassembled. But at the @away #conceptstore in #soho, a place dedicated to transience, our work has found what qualifies as a "permanent" home in this field: six months and counting!

This was for La Traviata. The design used foreshortened angles to accentuate the apparent height of the fireplace upstage -
one of the stage tricks actually used back then
