    The Gazette featured Emagispace in an article written about their set up, what went into getting where they are today, and their plans for the future. Clark and Noel Maxam have worked together to create a sustainable design, adaptable products, and a modular wall system.

     

    "I had to build a bar for a set and couldn't afford to do that on the budget we had, so I set the scene in the basement of a bar and used a stack of empty beer boxes to reflect that," Noel Maxam said. "I didn't know if then, but it was a germ of an idea. Much later, I started looking at the idea of putting up sets myself and thought 'why not have building blocks for adults?'" Maxam has been working on this idea for the past 25 years.  Once he had the design, Maxam and a former UCCS colleague figured out how to create the connections between the panels using their fiberboards to make a stable and durable, temporary wall component.

     

    Clark found Little Colorado, a Denver manufacturing company that agreed to manufacture the wood panels. A company in Los Angeles makes the plastic interconnecting components and together they have a working building block system! The company officially took off in 2013 when the Maxam brothers got the patent for their idea. It has taken Noel a while to get where he is today, but his hard worked has paid off.

    Sony’s Screen Gems started using smaller and cheaper cameras to make bigger movies. Sony just announced that its new horror film “Cadaver” will be shot with a Sony s7 II that costs $3,000. Sony claims that the S7 camera is perfect because “it allows us opportunities we might not otherwise get.”

     

    Screen Gems decided to go eco-friendly on their cadaver. They now use Emagispace’s eco-friendly, sustainable design building block system to construct their sets. However, the environmental consciousness was not the only reason they decided to use Emagispace. “Emagispace allowed us to build 20-foot set walls in half the time of traditional lumber-based sets, and then save the building blocks for future productions,” said Gainor. “So in essence, the walls went up in half the time and cut waste by about 50%. It was a win-win.”

     

    Many companies are starting to find ways to make their products and productions more efficient. Emagispace offers a lot for sustainable, adaptable and reusable interior design builds and can create temporary walls in a short amount of time.

    People believe that modular design could be the future of interior buildouts and tenant improvements. Emagispace is a Los Angeles-based modular design company that launched a modular building block system. Emagiblocks allows for personal customization and design. The new Emagiblocks use modular panels and very few tools are then required for the moveable walls. It takes the company a fraction of the time to complete a build out with Emagiblocks.

     

    Emagiblocks are packed and shipped in a 10-by-10 flat package and can fit in almost any trunk and closet. After Noel Maxam, CEO and founder, saw the waste of theatre sets getting torn down and broken after each set, he saw a need for something new. Emagiblocks are a sustainable design and have many different uses.

     

    Sony and Revlon are some of Emagispace’s current customers. Emagispace recently received $4.2 million in Series A funding. With that money, the company will continue to grow and make a larger product line.
