PAI Elm + Steel Reception Desk

About

Our design vision for the pieces we designed and built for Prairie Architecture’s new space started with the reception desk.

As the main focal point for their customers and clients when they are greeted we had to design a stately visual piece!

The main feature of the reception desk utilized reclaimed Elm which was specified early on in the project paying homage to Winnipeg’s boulevards.

Part of our overall concept was incorporating angular lines within the designs of the steel work.

The folded steel helped create large flat planes presenting a beautiful contrast to the figured warm character of the Elm.

The use of steel within our designs were to connect to PAI’s existing steel work tables as well as the steel in the heritage building.
