Jennifer would like to create masterpieces in her garage art studio, but its disorganization, lack of space and poor lighting make that a difficult task. Flux redesigns the space in an industrial style with plenty of light and complete mobility. To start, Flux builds floor-to-ceiling, wall-to-wall storage along the back wall of the garage. Encompassing twenty-two heavy duty boxes with see through metal grates at the front and racks for paintings to dry in the center, this piece is an organizational dream for Jennifer to store all of her found objects. The industrial style moves straight from the storage and into the walls with six giant easels covered in bolts for hanging artwork and a weathered steel faux finish. Not only can these easels be propped up on the walls, but they can easily be removed and rearranged to create a triangular display tower for an art show. To keep the newly stone tiled floor space clear of clutter, Jesse fabricates a mobile art cart. Crafted with premium woods and steel, this cart is built to last and has various uses thanks to its mobility and customization to Jennifer's needs. Totally tricked out with storage compartments for supplies and stadium tiered brush holders, Jennifer can roll the cart over to her new storage to gather some objects, then move it over to her easels and get started on a project. Sticking with the mobility theme, Andre and Scott create a canopied structure on wheels that houses a couch and built in end tables. This piece of mobile furniture can be used for clients to sit and watch a presentation on the newly installed video equipment or can be wheeled out to the driveway for more room to work. Taking care of the lighting issue, Flux adds plenty of it with a translucent garage door and sun tunnels for natural light, along with track lighting and arm fixtures for highlighting artwork. Jennifer loves her new flexible, functional and industrial art studio.
