Whitmarsh built 2 of these custom salvaged wood walls in an office building in San Francisco. Each wall is 11 feet by 15 feet, and is made entirely out of salvaged shipping palette wood. Q: How do you balance your artistic needs with the needs of consumers?A: It’s challenging because paid projects aren’t always the kinds of things you’d do for yourself in the studio. But I think differences in approach between designer and client can create good synergies. Working under time and budget constraints almost always yields good results, however unpleasant it may be at the time.
