From curator LF:

“SILENT SHOUT comprises a group of eight artists with diverse practices. Silently, and subtly they work with their hands, but their art shouts back at you. Using quiet humor, strong palettes, and repetitious mark making; these artists express an experimental urgency and overall joy in the creative process. Their work reverberates as if it were a strong shout from the artist’s inner core.”

Smorgasburg Upstate Opens This Weekend

We are beyond excited for the grand opening of Smorgasburg Upstate, which kicks off this Saturday, August 6th from 11am to 6pm!

About 6 months ago, Jonathan Butler of Smorgasbug asked Atlas Industries to participate in the restoration of the historic Hutton Brickyards site. The Hutton yard, which operated for over 100 years, supplied brick throughout the Hudson Valley and New York City and to many large projects including Yankee Stadium. Bricks marked “HUTTON” are frequently encountered during New York renovation and demolition projects today. The purpose of the restoration was to prepare the site for Smorgasbord Upstate, a Hudson Valley version of the wildly popular food and craft market.

The site is simply incredible - both for its architecture and its positioning just a stone’s throw from the Hudson River. The scale is grand - heroic, even. A beautiful tension is created between the rugged, industrial mammoths of structures and their juxtaposition against the banks of the river. One can’t help but be swept away by this poetic contrast. There isn’t a location better suited to host an amazing, open air market.

When Atlas got involved, the challenge at hand was to maximize these poetic qualities, while making the site fun, comfortable and safe for thousands of vendors and guests, and to have it all finished in 4 short months. The solution presented in a productive collaboration between Smorgasburg, Hutton Brickyards, Atlas Industries, the construction manager and general contractor, together with a team of civil and structural engineers, architect, landscape architect and subcontractors. Atlas provided design consultation on every aspect of the project - from site layout to logo design. The desire to enhance and express the innately unique experience of this site, while exposing visitors to architecture on a grand scale, has been fully realized on the banks of the Hudson River. 

The grand opening is tomorrow, August 6th from 11am-6pm and will be open every Saturday through October. Learn more at Smorgasburg Upstate. Special thanks to Berg + Moss Architects for their involvement.

as4 Modular Furniture System outfits a DUMBO Dining Room

The last waterfront building in DUMBO Brooklyn was acquired in 2013 by New York City real estate development company Alloy Development. Slated to complete this summer, the 42 homes available on the DUMBO waterfront are highly desirable. Surrounded by Brooklyn Bridge Park, the building boasts river views, retail shops, and many other amenities. Alloy chose Rebecca Robertson Interiors to help interested parties visualize the potential of each rental space.

The design team chose Atlas Industries' as4 modular furniture system for the dining room of the model apartment. The configuration of low cabinets appear to float effortlessly above the floor. The cold-rolled steel metal components are seen here with a chemically blackened finish, adding an industrial touch to the warmth of the solid walnut unit. Two decks, placed closely together, display a collection of peppermills, studio pottery, and art books. A stack of 3 drawers and an upper cabinet offers additional storage without crowding the configuration. The end result is a subtle, yet striking.

In this month's Elle Decor Italia:

Parlo italiano? This gorgeous TriBeCa apartment is the brainchild of interior designer Ryan Lawson and his team. Our as4 modular furniture system in solid walnut and cold-rolled steel was chosen for the library. The end result - beauty, function, and endless versatility for this client.

The as4 library is stunning alongside a vintage white glass Paul McCobb table, two Chubby Chairs by Dirk Vander Kooij, and a custom leather and steel wall sconce by Apparatus. Bravo!

as4 Modular Shelving Closet System in the home of Lydia Wills

Atlas Industries designed the as4 modular shelving system to solve countless design challenges. The wide array of components, and the ability to customize, expand, reconfigure and transport the system has made it a top choice for designers and homeowners.

Some of those who choose the as4 modular shelving system for their closets are working within small, irregularly shaped spaces, or trying to create storage that is a work of art in itself. Lydia Wills, owner of a literary management agency, was looking to achieve both these goals.

At the time, Lydia was living near Gramercy Park in a 600-square-foot studio. In the little dressing area between the main room and bathroom, Atlas Industries installed a custom as4 modular shelving system for her. The endless configurations, and ability to grow the system, made the as4 the perfect choice for her design needs. Learn more about Lydia Wills and her beautiful home in this post by Improvised Life.

Atlas Industries as4 Modular Shelving in a Montauk Beach House

Just featured in Design Milk! This three-story, split level house is nestled atop a densely wooded bluff in Montauk, New York. The design firm, Space Exploration, employed a material palette of light, neutral colors and pale woods, which combine to create a tranquil, airy atmosphere.

On the ground floor, a new recreational solarium featuring floors finished with glossy white epoxy opens directly onto the property's sprawling grounds. Space Exploration chose the as4 modular shelving system in walnut and cold-rolled steel to compliment the neutrals and whites of the solarium. The as4 system can be infinitely reconfigured and expanded upon to store and display the growing eclectic collection of furniture and objects, collected by the owners during travels to Morocco, Europe and Central America.

Founded in 1993 by Thomas Wright and Joseph Fratesi, Atlas Industries is a multi-disciplinary design and manufacturing firm integrating architecture, interiors, furniture and objects in a craft-based sensibility. Our work is informed by the conviction that designing and building are mutually implied processes, always in dialogue. As the abstraction of design finds material expression in an object or space, the success of that expression must be sought in one’s experience of it.

We are currently looking for a metalworker to assist in our production shop in Newburgh, NY. Shop experience is required and machine shop experience is a plus. Duties include layout, cutting, machining, finishing, assembly and assisting on installations. Above all else, applicant must be competent, dependable, organized, careful, hardworking and efficient. This position requires a good eye, good judgment, focus and intelligence. Full time position with competitive wages.
