MASHstudios introduces the Special Edition “Metals” Collection to the PCH and LAX Series Lines

MASHstudios introduces their special edition "Metals" collection to the popular LAX and PCHseries.  I especially love the hint of glamour in all the stream lined pieces.

Earlier this week I was invited to the unveiling of the Special Edition “Metals” Collection, a new addition to MASHstudios‘ widely popular PCH and LAX series lines.  Hosted by Bernard Brucha, MASHstudios Founder, and Dwell Magazine West Coast Editor, Erika Heet, not only were we among the first to preview the newest additions to the MASH LAXseries and PCHseries lines, but those in attendance were also treated to an intimate round table discussion on “Craftsmanship in the Digital Age”

You may remember this past summer when I wrote about the Dwell Labs project at 1600 Vine in Hollywood.  There, I photographed  a three bedroom unit designed by Laura Schwartz Muller, which just so happened to incorporate pieces from the MASHstudios LAX and PCH series.  Below are photographs from her space, but you can also read about the project in its entirety here.

The LAXseries

Prior to this week’s unveiling, the LAXseries was only available in one finish – solid english walnut with a white powder coated aluminum finish.  Inspired by the move away from sterile white work environments in their office and commercial design projects, Bernard Brucha added five new finishes to the already popular series, infusing the collection with a touch of glamour, allowing the pieces to be incorporated into the design of almost any room in the home or office, formal or not.

The PCHseries

Until this week, the PCHseries was only available in an oil rubbed teak  paired with cast aluminum.  The PCHseries now comes in a darker wood finish and black cast or gold cast aluminum doors, resulting in a sexier and more dramatic look and feel than the previous edition.

The juxtaposition of the clean lines and the organic texture of the cast door fronts mimic the weathered grain of a much prized piece of reclaimed wood, and as Bernard Brucha states, “represents the MASHstudios philosophy of bringing handcrafted, functional beauty  back into the digital age”

A testament to the minds constantly at work at MASHstudios.   Design is always on the mind, even when sipping champagne, as this chair was carefully crafted from a champagne bottle top during the party and was placed on the shelf in front of the MASHstudio catalogs, for a nice contrast.  How could I resist a great shot?

It’s such a coincidence that I found myself at MASHstudios for the unveiling of the new pieces in the LAX and PCH series lines, as I have been eyeing the LAX wall mount desk (the earlier version!) for my son’s room remodel for quite some time.  You may remember that a while back I started by painting, redoing the ceiling, and installing a sputnik sconce?  Good thing I’m slow at getting things done around my own house (this is what happens when you’re a designer – your home comes last!) After previewing the new additions, I may have to change things up a little and incorporate one of the new metals.  He’s only 8, but he says that he doesn’t want mainstream and wants a look that is more “outside the box”. (Yes, those were his exact words.) Which finish would you go with for a boy’s room?  Copper, brass, brushed nickel, or just plain white? Your suggestions are most welcome!
