This wood decorative scalloped, carved element was a serious design challenge to solve initially, but the final result of the dimensional carving in teak wood makes a truly dramatic statement for the Four Seasons Hotel door panels and room designation it adorns. This was a complex and collaborative project: creative design work was through Square Peg Design in Oakland, CA; the Carving and initial hand-finishing was by Andrusko Group; the mill work firm completed the finishing; and the sign element details were performed by Martinelli Environmental Graphics in San Francisco; final installation was performed by the mill work team on site in Hawaii.
