A Conversation with Cassie Stepanek, Design Manager of Studio Other
Studio Other, a creator of custom solutions for commercial interior environments and workspaces, has been named as one of the 2022 Best Places to Work in Los Angeles.
From Kings Canyon National Park to a San Francisco biotechnology company, a giant sequoia tree made the journey from forest to workspace, and Studio Other was fortunate enough to play a part in its repurposing.
Two years ago, Studio Other’s journey with an iconic NBA team began. With a team as highly-regarded, unmistakable and loved as this one, Studio Other, their partner, architecture and design firm Gensler, and the client, agreed that the end solution needed to strongly express their brand and reflect who they are as an organization. In fact, this brand expression was taken towards its purist and most literal form, with elements of nets and basketballs expected in the final designs.
Meet Jason, he’s got music in his blood. Jason Doerr, Studio Other Industrial Engineer, has been perfecting his Luthiery (the construction of stringed instruments) and amp building craft since before he can remember. With a dual love of building and music, he began Kraken Music in partnership with his Uncle Fernando, a retired Aerospace Engineer. Together, they meticulously hand-build wood guitar bodies and amps using locally sourced materials, each piece created with an attention to detail that can only be administered by one with a love for the craft.
Tangram, a curator of highly creative commercial interior environments headquartered in Southern California, is pleased to share its sponsorship of the latest Women in Design event. The event was held at the Steelcase WorkLife Center in Los Angeles, California on May 12th. The Los Angeles Women in Design event kicked off with a panel discussion where notable women in the industry discussed their personal experiences in their respective fields, navigating tough conversations and sharing what they have learned throughout their careers. Tangram has committed to sponsoring this ongoing series, with the next panel event taking place in San Francisco.
