Custom trophies, Rotterdam Netherlands
For the Dutch National Street Skateboard Championships 2019 held at Skateland Rotterdam, Focused constructed six very Dutch skateboarding trophies. The colorful clogs are made from recycled skateboards and rest on a walnut wood base. These walnut wood bases are leftovers from the table that we built for the world famous skateboarding podcast The Nine Club, making these trophies extra special.
Custom Dining Table, Milan Italy
Focused constructed a custom dining table for an architect family in Italy. Over 100 skateboard decks were recycled for this colorful tabletop with oak edges. The tabletop rests on a solid stainless steel base with oak legs. The table was finished with a transparent matt finish, giving the table a natural wooden look.
Custom Cabinets, Rotterdam The Netherlands
These three big cabinets for a healthcare store at the Erasmus MC hospital in Rotterdam, where the result of a collaboration with EGM Interiors (Dordrecht, Netherlands) and Technoplanning. The colorful side panels of these 270 cm high (9′) cabinets were constructed from 100 recycled skateboards.
The Nine Club Table, Venice USA
Focused constructed this custom table out of reclaimed walnut wood and nine skateboard decks donated by nine local rippers from Rotterdam. As old skate nerds we’ve been watching and listening to The Nine Club since day one. Every week Chris Roberts, Roger Bagley and Kelly Hart manage to bring a special, special, SPECIAL guest to their table and do a proper in-depth interview about their skateboarding life. Always on point. Always good vibes. Always fun to watch. And all for the love of skateboarding. To donate this table to their show, is just our way of saying “Thank you for giving us The Nine Club every week!“
Trophies Skate48 Video Contest, Rotterdam The Netherlands
Focused constructed these trophies for the Rotterdam edition of the Skate48 Video Contest. We received five old fisheye lenses from the legendary skateboard filmer Greg Hunt and turned them into five trophy jars. These fisheye lenses where placed in the center top of the trophies. The trophies were signed by Greg Hunt. The signature is only visible if you look through the lens in the trophy.
Golden Road Brewing, Los Angeles USA
