Brothers’ keepers

by

Erik and Israel Nordin, the brothers who own the award-winning custom furniture studio Detroit Design Center, located downtown on Michigan Avenue, have recently installed their latest art piece at the Greektown restaurant Mosaic (opening soon on the corner of Beaubien and Monroe streets). Specializing in metalwork, glassblowing and woodwork for commercial and residential spaces — like the shelving and lighting in the Congress Café and the hand-forged cobra rails in the Coliseum nightclub downtown — Erik Nordin says the two of them tackle “just about anything made of wood, glass or steel.” The sculpture commissioned for Mosaic is 22 feet in diameter, made from about 160 pieces of glass, copper and stainless steel.
