While Rakks shelving has been used in retail, museum and university settings, Rakks products are right at home in the home as well. In fact, Rakks was incorporated into a recent modern renovation of a cookie cutter house in Marina Del Rey, California. The project was completed by Redondo Beach design-build firm Ras-a Inc., which specializes in designs which positively impact the surrounding community and environment.

New York’s Whitney Museum of American Art has a new exhibit. It’s more of a room really, a pop-up education center for art classes and other participatory and hands-on events. After the Whitney sold its neighboring buildings last year in preparation for a 2015 move to its new Meatpacking District digs, there was a noticeable lack of creative programs and space.
With still a few years left before the move, the museum decided to bring in a temporary solution. The studio’s Breuer building location, of course, meant that this was going to be no orthodox “temporary solution”. The building has a long history of displays designed to cause extreme rubbernecking for unsuspecting passers-by.
