Working with Chick-fil-A, Taylor Workshop was recently asked to stage an experimental new way of bagging in the restaurants. It was understood from the get-go that foam core board probably wasn’t the most stable and reliable place to mount computer monitors with their necessary gear – weighing in at probably near 200 pounds. So what’s the best way to make these monitors usable and flexible in a sea of foam core? Taylor Workshop chose to make them float.
Look at it closely. As you can see, it’s a bit of a spider web of wiring that keeps these screens stable, but rest assured they’re hung well. Nick even tested them out by doing a few pull-ups on the fully outfitted rig to show how rigid the set up is. This was made possible thanks to a joint design venture between Taylor Workshop and Chick-fil-A to set up a overhead grid in the the heart of Chick-fil-A’s innovation center. The grid is an incredibly handy tool for an innovation center, and particularly necessary when something needs to be hung. The grid at Chick-fil-A suspends this 2-300 pound rig with complete ease, and is rated to take much more weight than that if needed. It’s just one of the many tools Taylor Workshop keeps in its back pocket for when a prototype demands it.
