ATI Decorative Laminates announces Robert M. Laschever, a principal with Cauhaus Design, and Bradshaw Orrell, founder of Bradshaw Orrell Interiors, as guest judges for its Third Annual Product Installation Contest.
The competition invites architects, designers, project managers, specification managers, contractors, and installers to “Show Us Your Winning Formula” by submitting photos of MirroFlex, NuMetal, Fusion, or LumiSplash installations.
Laschever and Orrell both bring prestigious credentials to the contest. Cauhaus Design is an award-winning architectural and interior design firm founded 18 years ago by Laschever and his wife, Toby Schermerhorn. The Cauhaus Design studio is in a 75-year-old dairy barn located in western Maryland. Cauhaus Design specializes in custom hospitality projects and product design and has worked on projects throughout the United States, Canada, and in the Caribbean.
As a principal with Cauhaus Design, Laschever has worked on over 60 full-service hotels for multiple brands including Marriott, Renaissance, Hilton, and Wyndham. He is also an avid architectural photography with extensive travels throughout the United States, Europe, the Middle East, and Asia. His work has won numerous awards, and has been included in publications, and has been used for project artwork.
Orrell received his Master’s of Fine Arts degree with a focus in furniture design from the Savannah College of Art and Design. After grad school, he worked as design director for Niermann Weeks. Bradshaw moved back to North Carolina in 2003 to join the Baker Furniture team as Lead Designer. While at Baker, Bradshaw introduced several furniture and lighting collections such as Collector’s Edition, Collector’s Edition Lighting and Baker Studio.
He opened Bradshaw Orrell Interiors in 2007. One of his first projects was the Proximity Hotel, which was the first LEED Platinum Hotel in the country. Bradshaw continues to work with Quaintance-Weaver on projects at the Proximity Hotel, Printworks Bistro, O’Henry Hotel and Lucky 32. Other commercial projects include Boulton Creative, Market Square, Genuity Concepts, Biscuitville and the repurposing of Summerfield Farms.
Bradshaw’s residential projects are traditional with a crisp, clean, modern edge. His work ranges from designing homes from the ground up to projects of all sizes. Although Bradshaw focuses equally on residential and commercial projects he continues to work closely with the furniture industry. He has consulted on product and showroom design for many companies. In 2014, the Bradshaw Orrell Collection for Chelsea House was launched. This collection of lighting, accessories and occasional pieces is a perfect reflection of all of Bradshaw’s interests and influences.
The first place winner of this year’s contest will receive a cruise to the Western Caribbean with guest. Installations completed after July 1, 2016, are eligible and all entries must be received by Oct. 27, 2017.
