We had a large project this year helping out our friends at Thesis with the launch of Nemschoff’s new line of healthcare furniture, Palisade. We began by shooting motion and stills at Herman Miller’s Greenhouse location in Michigan. Our motion footage was all shot on our RED Epic (of course) while the stills were captured using the Sony A7r. I typically use my Phase One IQ 260 for all of my furniture shoots but there were some interesting workflow things we could do with the Sony that intrigued me (more on that in a coming post).
One of the more fun aspects of this shoot was an interview that we filmed at the Eames Home in Pacific Palisades, and by “fun”, I mean transcendent! For any fan of Mid-Century Modern design, spending a day at the Eames Home is something of an architectural pilgrimage. We had the pleasure of filming Palisade’s designer, Jess Sorel as interviewed by Eames Demetrios, the grandson of Ray and Charles. Yeah, pretty cool.
The Palisade line itself represents some of the most thoughtful design I have come across within the healthcare field. They’ve actually just won Best of Competition at Contract Design’s Nightingale Awards.
Anyway, here’s the little film we did and a few of our stills beneath.
