Photographs from the Salt Works Launch Event

Written by admin  • June 4, 2014

On May 29th, over 130 people attended an event to celebrate the launch of a new furniture social enterprise: Salt Works! The reveal party unveiled artisan furniture crafted from reclaimed materials by neighborhood residents. Guests mingled with the staff, feasted on My Lucky Tummy delights, and bid on a variety of pieces crafted by the Salt Works team. Daylight Blue Media was there to capture the evening. We’re grateful to have taken part and look forward to seeing this collaborative effort develop.

This Thursday, come to the Salt Works Launch Party to check out the furniture this social enterprise has been building on the Near Westside. Each hand-crafted piece celebrates the massive old growth timbers that were reclaimed from area warehouses.

Zeke Leonard, an Assistant Professor at Syracuse University who has worked closely with the enterprise and his classes to design the furniture, will auction off a Salt Works Trestle Table, Plank Bench, and a “mystery” piece designed by Salt Works employees, Luis Vilella and Pedro Ignacio Diaz Ramos.

The event is free to attend and My Lucky Tummy will be there to provide several dishes, including flan and stuffed eggplant. Beer, wine, coffee, and tea will also be available.

King + King Architects is located off of West Street on Syracuse’s near Westside. Click HERE for a map and directions to the Launch party.
