DESIGN FROM NATURE'S PRINCIPLES
Nature has spent the last few billion years refining its techniques for how things go together and why they come apart, and certain principles have held up. In fact, we see self-similarity across scale, from the nano to the galactic. We see that tension-integral systems in sacred geometries are the most stable, always. So, we figure there might just be something to learn from that.
GuildWorks' design inspiration comes from our understanding of these structures in nature, and their inherent synergies throughout the universe. On the sub-micro scale, particles orbit one another in a tensional network of subatomic forces. Atoms arrange themselves in sacred-geometric patterns, most obviously in the crystal lattices of the strongest and often most beautiful materials. On the macro scale this can be seen in planets, solar systems and galaxies with the orbiting gravitational pull (a tensional force) keeping the whole picture in stable balance. Even on the human scale, science has shown cells to be tension-integral structures along with the muscular- skeletal system of the human body. more >>>
The concept of GuildWorks comes from the old-world institution of educated and skilled craftsmanship. The concept of "guilds" was born in the middle ages as a union of artisans and craftsman joined to promote the value of high-quality work in their fields. In our contemporary context, GuildWorks team members are skilled at the art of fabric-structure construction, working in this new medium with the old sense of value for our craft.
We focus on bringing beauty into the world, not only in what we make, but in how we make it.
We strive to be a conscious organization that creates meaningful and valuable products in an environment that truly values the inherent dignity of each and every person in the company, and ultimately throughout the world.
As a business, our purpose is to provide dramatic and valuable brand recognition in the marketplace, as well as amazing, inspiring spaces for our customers. In order to accomplish this we must provide an extraordinary level of customer service. To fulfill this we know we must be an organization populated with amazing, extraordinary, and brilliant people.
Our goals are about abundance and prosperity for all those within the company and to provide dignified and stable livelihoods for all those on whom we depend. We agree to consciously create a company culture where we value kindness, generosity, and integrity as fundamental in the way we work with our customers and each other.
Our vision for Guildworks is a full service design, manufacturing, project management and installation firm specializing in innovative and transformative fabric structures.
