One Hat One Hand was presented with the opportunity to design a welcoming sculpture for the Chime Headquarters in San Francisco. Helping our clients realize a project from concept to realization, from fabrication to installation, is a joyful experience.


The arrangement of the sculpture speaks to patterns in music like the notation of sheet music arrangement and accentuates the verticality and light within the space.


After a thoughtful and iterative process, we reached out to Bryan Goldenberg, a well-known San Francisco glass artist, to create the mouth-blown individual orbs. Like bubbles created by breath, the orbs visually present captured air. Each orb represents the breath and air in beautiful music, the tempo and sound realization.
