Pond Studios is the design studio of renowned carpet tile designer, David Oakey. In the 90’s David teamed up with another prominent architect, Elva Rubio to design his new studio. The studio would go on to win a handful of awards including the prestigious “Interior Architecture” and “Distinguished Building” awards from the Chicago chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA). As a 20th anniversary sentiment to that recognition, David wanted to create a documentary/interview style video to showcase the studio and it’s continued evolution. Throughout the video, David and Elva converse about their inspirations for the building, their friendship, architectural features, and their mutual appreciation for nature. The video combines gorgeous landscape shots, portraits, and historic photography to create a visual narrative to go along with the dialogue.
