TRIPLE SINK

The ‘Triple Sink’ was created for a high-end restaurant. The three sinks provide ample room for patrons to comfortably wash their hands without feeling crowded. The mass of concrete is accentuated by the vertical inside lip of the sink as well as the 6″ edge.

TERRA SINK

TERRA SINK

The ‘Terra Sink’ is quite a revolutionary design. The beautiful complexity comes from not the basin itself but rather the profile of the edge. A flat ledge in the upper right corner creates the perfect space for soap, a toothbrush or a potted orchid. The smoothness evokes a water worn stone. Zen is not a mindset but rather a sink – the Terra Sink.

PALO VERDE DESK

Sometimes a design finds you instead of the other way around. This design was born of a tree that was felled by a summer monsoon. The tree was located next to our studio and was cut up by a city road crew and stacked to be hauled away. We could not allow this beautiful palo verde tree stump to go to waste, so it was rescued at the last second, however, it was without arms to support a desk. Being the problem solvers that we are, custom steel supports were fashioned that matched each branch profile perfectly and the ‘Palo Verde Desk’ was born.

RESIST TABLE

The ‘Resist Table’ is our conference table at the studio. The idea to create a fabric-formed conference table was intriguing, yet we are not fans of “design for designs’ sake”, so incorporating the fabric element was the challenge. The solution was to create raised mounds in the center of the table. These mounds are attached to tensioned stainless steel cables that are fastened to the structural wood beams overhead. This ties the table to the space and gives the fabric-formed element relevance, but we took it a step further. Although out of frame in the photos, spot lights are attached to each cable thus giving the cables even more importance. We endeavor to apply this holistic design approach to all of our custom commissions.

HEXAGON TABLE

Ergonomics should be the cornerstone of all good design. Next, consideration should be given to how humans will interact with each other whilst interacting with the piece. This ‘Hexagon Table’ is an exercise in ergonomics, simplicity and human engagement. It is designed for eight diners, four on each side. The shape is such that conversation is directed towards the center of the table instead of straight across. Supported by a hand welded steel base, every bar is necessary to create a solid table without wobble. The etched design in the surface is what an x-ray view of the base would be in plan view.

GREEN WALL

A concrete wall can be a flat static surface or it can be a dynamic element with life. The client for this restaurant wanted to convey permanence while honoring nature. The hexagon pattern in the wall is a reference to the geometry of a beehive. We utilized an inflated fabric-form to cast this wall and countertop on-site in one pour. 8,000 lb’s of concrete were pumped into the form, freezing a moment in time when the fabric was under immense tension as can be seen in the wrinkles. This is the intrinsic imperfect beauty of fabric-formed elements and created a landmark element in an amazing space.

EROSION SINK

The Erosion Sink is a defining design for Gore Design Co. First created for a client in 2004 and shortly thereafter published in Dwell Magazine™, the Erosion Sink remains special to us. Each one is unique, no two are the same. All aspects can be customized, from color and size to the shape and layout of the erosion pattern. Brandon Gore personally creates each Erosion Sink, spending more than 40 hours on the form and 200-300% more time hand-finishing the cast sink. This design is often imitated but never duplicated as the essence and nuance cannot be gained by impersonation.

The estimated price for this design has historically ranged from $4,600 to $15,000 + crating & freight

FLOW DESK

Concrete can be hard and bold or soft and inviting. The ‘FLOW Desk’ incorporates a fabric-formed edge that makes the desk functional and approachable. The integrated copper apertures allow power cords to be routed unseen. The shape of the desk was determined by the space accounting for proper seating clearances and worktop ergonomics.

IVORY + TURQUOISE

Not all custom sinks have to be truly custom. For this project we used our Lincoln Sink design with a custom turquoise inlay. The turquoise came from Jerome, AZ, a historic mining town in the mountains of Arizona. Further reference to concrete was made in the space by using old concrete form panels as wall cladding. The rawness of the old wood worked well with the crisp, clean white concrete.

SPINE SINK

The ‘Spine Sink’ was the first of its kind, a fluid shape with a curved slot-drain. The devil is in the details, and that is where our 35,000+ hours of experience in this field paid off. Although it is difficult to decipher from the photos, the drain actually slopes from 3″ deep to 5″ deep from one side to the other. Additionally, the mechanics of the drain are a work of art with two integral drain apertures cast into the sink itself, making the connection a dream for a plumber.

CREVICE TABLE

This particular piece was hand-crafted for the owner of a national high-end furniture store as his outdoor dining table. The simplicity of the design belies the complexities of realizing the end product, but at the end of the day we prevailed. The concrete is smooth and solid on all sides, but is hollow in the middle to reduce the weight to a more manageable 500 lb’s or so per slab section (versus 1,155 lb’s per section).

ALPINE EROSION SINK

This sink may have been the single most difficult piece we have ever created, from a mold construction viewpoint. The erosion pattern itself is that of the slope of the owners land in Alpine, CO. Slopes, unlike rivers or lakes, do not lend themselves to working well as a sink. The solution was to cast vertical walls surrounding the slope, with the water exiting into a cave and disappearing into a hidden drain. We love a challenge which means we were head over heals about this, the ‘Alpine Erosion Sink’.

Restaurants are a natural candidate for the organic quality that concrete countertops provide. They warm an other sterile environment and give a sense of place and permanence. Our friends at Cornish Pasty commissioned us to create these charcoal countertops with embedded steel letters. Do you have a business that could benefit from concrete? Drop us a line.

IS CONCRETE RIGHT FOR YOU?

Concrete is not the only medium we work with at Gore Design Company. We believe in the honesty of elements and have faith in the design and manufacturing process that combines them. We regularly work with steel and wood. But one could say concrete is our defining material. Concrete simply put, is a meditation. It is a story within a material. Concrete combines the bounty the world gives us, with a human and moving meditation that allows its manufacture. Concrete is honest. When it is made well, a virtuous process makes it. It has flaws to be sure. It will change with use and age. It has variations in color and texture within a single piece and will differ slightly from piece to piece. It has subtle voids. These flaws are the source of aesthetic solutions that work best in concrete.

Concrete wants to be concrete. It is meant for people who understand that momentary perfection happens only within the instant it was meant for, and cannot ever again be quite the same. Who would want copper gutters that lack patina, or cedar shingles that are prevented from taking on the silver sheen of age, or naked steel without the ability to protect itself with oxidation? Concrete will age as all things do. It will collect the moments we share with it. If treated well, it will outlast the people who made it; and do so with grace they gave it. It will become a sage gift to the future making our memories present as an unknown future is collected. Its history will become part of our future. And it will always allow us a needed pause, to fully exist concretely, and in the present.

who we are

ABOUT US

what we believe

In today’s world of planned obsolescence, the people of Gore Design Company plan for permanence. We do this by creating objects with materials that will last for millennia. We honor the honesty of the materials we work with and stay true to their nature. Whether we work with concrete, wood, or steel; it is through each material personality of color, imperfection, unique structural abilities and

aesthetic resonance, that their perfection is revealed. We use the instrument of a restrained and timeless design process, to combine these material elements in a correct and human proportion. It is this combination of materials, method, and vision we know will allow a crafted object to live fully in the present, acknowledge the past, and begin to reveal the future.

BRANDON GORE

Brandon Gore founded Gore Design Company. His passion is to return design to where it is really needed. Brandon believes materials should be deployed as a true gesture and extension of human presence in our world. Brandon has focused on the transubstantiation of ephemeral design to human scaled and valued objects for countless hours. It is his life and his quest. He has made his vision real, and business sustainable through many unique connections with institutions and individuals who value his

design aesthetic, fine craftsmanship, and unwavering commitment to quality. Brandon openly teaches his methods in classes at his Tempe studio, and throughout the country. A commitment to education underlines his commitment to materials, and those who would use them. As far as he is concerned, the key to good design realization is the commitment to the work that goes into it, the depth of senses that perceive it, and the ability to combine those elements into the material manifestation of an ethereal vision.
