e11even We first met E11even when their sommelier stumbled upon our sign on King St.  We realized that we had a unique opportunity to incorporate old timbers that were excavated from the site the restaurant now sits on. When buried, the hemlock took on the vivid colors of its unique, mineral-rich Toronto lakefront soil (Queen's Wharf).  We proposed a centrally located communal table that utilized a mosaic of offcut knots, piths and cathedrals. Usually,  these elements are the first to get thrown away in commercial applications of hemlock- however, these are also  parts that bear most of the beauty. We utilized simple geometric form with a vivid collage of wood elements that celebrate this idea. In collaboration with Strathcona, Canadian Salvaged timber used reclaimed Hemlock from the Queen's Wharf Collection for the e11even mosaic table. Photo by Simon Lee
