We love Oxbow Studios for many reasons. First, they take old materials and reuse them for new purposes. But even more than that, they make certain that their work provides not only function, but becomes art.

Take a look at this produce stand, built for Wormfarm Institute, a nonprofit dedicated to integrating culture and agriculture. When this stand brings food to the city center, it evokes nostalgia and textures of the rural farm land that produced the fresh vegetables which fill its shelves and lattices.

The bike corral that Oxbow made for Alterra Coffee on Prospect goes far beyond the average bike rack to also become public art that improves environment in multiple ways.
