Eclectic is defined as “derives ideas, styles or taste from a broad and diverse range of sources”. When one looks over the portfolio of the Figure Plant, eclectic is a word that comes to mind. Original one of a kind fabrication for; scenery and props for photography and video, large public installations, custom promotional vehicles, and retail displays and fixtures. No two jobs are the same “a fact we love about our work” says owner /founder David Fredrickson.
Started in a garage Figureplant opened its shop in San Francisco in 1997. In 2002 they opened a second facility in Portland Oregon. Figureplant’s original mission has stayed the same, and that is to help companies stand out in the marketplace, and have their creative visions come to life through innovative design and high quality fabrication.
Each design has its’ own particular challenges and no matter how you decide to initiate your project bringing Figureplant on board, guarantees a team that is going to do what it takes to make concept a reality. When you partner with David and is team of wizards you are bringing on board more than 100 years of collective experience, and a full service shop that offers; consultation, project management, engineering, fabrication, installation, fulfillment, delivery, on site support and removal. Whew.
These days you can find a final cut editing system around just any corner you turn, but to find a shop that can fabricate, that is create a real 3 dimensional object from a simple idea are few and far between. In fact in our local film and video production community there is just a handful of places that make this happen. David and the Figureplant is one of those few, and that is why they are featured here on PHS.
