Nos Caves Vin, the off-site wine storage facility in the Rice Village area of Houston, will be using Merge Studios of Houston for all of their custom furniture and architectural elements.
"Our facility has a design aesthetic that is a combination of 80 year old concrete floors, clay & cork walls and leather furniture. And, our architect, Walter Murphy AIA of Murphy Mears, designed some very complicated elements. Merge Studios will be building everything - drapery hardware with low voltage lights, metal glass storage, custom tables and signage using our logo. They have the technical skills as well as the creative eye necessary," said Jost Lunstroth of Nos Caves.
The look and name of Nos Caves is based on a modern twist to a cave but without faux techniques. The concrete floors were simply stained to highlight the various affects of 80 years of use, the walls and ceilings are covered with American Clay and cork, the lighting is low and warm and the furniture is simple and clean. The tables from Merge Studios are unfinished metal and various hardwoods.
All the elements have to work together with the art that is on just about every wall to create the ambiance that our members desire. All together, the space has a simple, elegant and inviting air, encouraging conversation and the sharing of wine.
Bob Martin of Merge Studios says "It's the perfect space for our work to be displayed, but more importantly, to be enjoyed".
