Our Studio

We are located in the Elston Industrial Lofts, a beautiful, rehabbed multi-use property on Chicago’s near north side. We welcome architects, designers, and other clients into our studio to brainstorm ideas and browse our large inventory of mock-ups, finish samples, and stock of specialty alloy - in addition to viewing our fabrication processes.
