Our partner company, Fluid Motorunion, recently commissioned FD Studios to create a unique design which they could display in their newly built front lobby area…a custom tablet holder. They wanted to not only make available an easy way for customers to sign in, but also start a collection in their waiting area of memorable pieces which were also functional.

Beginning with the rendering stage the design began to take place based on the idea it would be centered on an automotive transmission. This meant not only did the tablet need to work but prototypes for holding the transmission upright and making it maneuverable were also needed in order to make the design complete.

After completely 3D modeling the design in CAD, we were able to build the piece with minimal test cuts and only one final cut for each piece of the entire design. The result is a completely custom design comprised out of a mixture of high grade aluminum and stainless steel.
