When starting a project with Gizmo, it makes no difference to us if your concept is a drawing on a napkin, or a polished proposal. Gizmo goes beyond design assistance and graphic support to provide tailor- made attention and management to fulfill your project goals. Gizmo’s years of experience working with a myriad of different entities—from institutions like museums or the national parks, to artists and high end corporate clients—has made us experts in successfully planning of all types of projects. By providing our clients with the tools to plan and execute the most particular details of their project, whether that be permitting, scheduling concerns, or detailed engineering, Gizmo’s streamlined planning & design process offers our clients flawless technical and logistical realization of each unique, creative vision.
Museums + Public Art + Sculpture
Using advanced fabrication techniques, Gizmo enables artists, designers, and museums to realize their creative vision through the application of technical solutions. Our experience creating museum exhibits, and outdoor and permanent public artworks in a variety of mediums, allows us to fulfill even the most challenging design, materiality, and use constraints—resulting in a beautiful, functional, and enduring final product. Whatever the medium, Gizmo has the expertise and capabilities to provide flawless physical manifestations of our client’s ideas, using custom solutions that run the spectrum from cutting edge machining technology, to the most detailed artisan craftsmanship and hand finishing. If you can dream—we can build it. Gizmo also strives to offer artists a resource for when their newest projects outgrow their current studio capabilities. We’ve helped many artists in transition, and believe that an artist shouldn’t have to learn to be an expert woodworker, metallurgist, or have a larger staff in order to produce a quality piece of work.
Logistics + Rigging + Multimedia
Passionate about what we do, Gizmo utilizes sophisticated and advanced installation techniques, tailored to the specific logistical and aesthetic requirements of everthing from kinetic sculptures and expansive museum displays, to substantial outdoor public artwork placement—with safety, design, and intention considered every step of the way.
Being in the business of creating works of art, Gizmo possesses unparalleled expert insight into the process of installing them. Whether the task is installing a dynamic, ethereal sculpture from a TKTK” atrium ceiling, creating a forest of light, or moving, assembling and anchoring a 4 ton steel sculpture the size of a van—if it can be dreamed and built, we can install it. Rain, shine, or blizzard—our team’s design and engineering expertise, and years of experience working with civil and private entities all over the world, enable us to effortlessly navigate permitting and logistical considerations, and ensure that the best technical and creative solutions are implemented for each individual installation project.
