Situ Studio, NYC September 2016
In collaboration with Situ Studio New York we constructed a custom DecksTop table top for a large tech company in New York. This – over 3 meter long and 1,2 meter wide – tabletop is our first DecksTop with round edges. It took 240 recycled skateboards to construct this beauty.
Pliskin Arhitects NYC, August 2015
For a project of Pliskin Architecture NYC, Focused constructed two customized table-tops. The tables where placed in the pantry of a global headquarters of a large tech company in New York City. The showpiece is the long parsons table with a side panel. The lines of the top of this table continue into the side panel, resulting in a colorful waterfall. With its over 3,8 meters long lenght, this table is the largest table that has ever been constructed from recycled skateboards. Together with the matching smaller banquette table it forms a unique piece in the center of the new community on the floor. A total number of 110 worn-out skateboard decks have been recycled into these two pieces. More information about the Pliskin Architecture NYC project can be found on their website.

Chocoholic Rotterdam, May 2015
The popular chocolate store Chocoholic in Rotterdam has been redocorating this year. One of the new items in the store was a counter with an custom built DecksTop™ by Focused on top. Shop owner Marco Harreman is not only passionate about chocolate, but also about sevenply maple which he used to ride back in the days. We integrated four of his old rides in this custom built DecksTop™. It took 29 skateboard decks to build this – more than 4 meters long – piece. The new Chocoholic counter was designed by Jeroen Dekker and developped in collabaration with Hectik Skateramps.
