Hota Design Visit’s Kimball Office

Hota Design Studio was selected along with RS&H and Kasper Architects to visit Kimball Office Furniture’s showroom in Indiana.  Going on these trips are always enlightening to see what goes into products, in this case, office furniture.  It was great to see the think tanks and the process Kimball takes to ensure quality and craftsmanship. Thank you for the Hospitality and the insight. It was an all around fantastic trip.  Thank you to Rodger Carroll for arranging the whole thing along with Spencer from TOS, our local Kimball Dealer.

IIDA’s 2013 Cocktail Couture Event

 

 

IIDA North Florida Chapter Hosted for the first time a runway show for their yearly Cocktail Couture event.  In the past years, designers who participated have had to make hats, purses, belts and shoes. This year, they stepped up the game and had to make a complete outfit out of materials that are commonly found in the design industry.  Hota Design did not participate this year, but after the event, we were excited and pumped up to participate next year.  The event is done to benefit Dignity U Wear. In the past years that IIDA North Florida has  been doing the Cocktail Couture event, they have raised over $60,000 to Dignity U Wear.  A great Chapter doing a great job for a Great Cause.

Welcome 2013!

It’s a new year at Hota Design Studio, and with that, comes new opportunities.   One item we finally got around to developing were site signs.  We have typically flown under the radar with the jobs we have worked on, posting pictures on our blog now and again, but this year, we are going to let it be known throughout the county’s we are doing work.  Look for our new site signs around a town near you.  If you spot one, let me know where you saw it, you may be eligible for a prize  :)
