Splint-Deck

Completed as a final year tech studio with Lindsay Erickson and Mira Henry, this project set a tone for much of our subsequent work. The project endeavored to combine the geometry and construction of a normal skateboard with that of the Eames’ Splint, and introduce a graphics of William Morris’s wallpaper both alike and unlike the pop graphics of skate culture. Our deck became an object of delicate beauty almost completely disassociated with its original inspirations, but that can be read in the lineage of molded plywood construction and traditional and digital craft.
