Plywerk started as a personal project to display our co-founder’s photography at Portland’s Saturday Market, and now is being used all over the place in ways we never imagined (and some we did). Sometimes, new ideas of how to use it have also led to new products, like Maggie, which provides the classic Plywerk look but offers the ability to change out the image; or Vinny, our newest family member, who’s all about putting your vinyl record albums on display. But it’s not just how our products are being used that interests us, it’s also who is using them. Thanks to this really cool thing called the Internet, Plywerk has found its way all over the world, into the hands of photographers, artists, designers, and business owners everywhere. So we’d like to take a moment to recognize one such business, Larson Architect SC, of Wisconsin, who realized that Plywerk made a great medium for displaying building illustrations.
But it’s not just because they chose Plywerk that we like them so much. With over 35 years of experience in the industry, founder Tim Larson’s mission is to provide innovative and sensible architecture and interior design services. The company is affiliated with the U.S. Green Building Council (you know, the people behind the LEED-certified program for eco-friendly building design), and the Congress for the New Urbanism, a group that focuses on building walkable, healthy community spaces. These are very much in line with our own philosophies of being more than just green, and encouraging our employees to bike to work or ride public transit.
So a big thank you to Larson Architect SC for choosing Plywerk!
