At the urging of TC's own Little Lost Tiki, I'm posting this because he thought some of the 'ohana might like to see it.

My daughter Caris is a first year interior design student. For her final project in her summer class, she has had to come up with a theme, then design and create a mock-up interior for an elevator. Because she's surrounded by tiki culture all day long in the shop (House of Tiki), what else would she design but a tiki/mid-century modern themed elevator?

I'm pretty proud of her efforts for a few reasons:
1. She promoted the use of sustainable resources (bamboo wall & floor coverings)
2. She's promoting and perpetuating the Tiki Culture/Lifestyle to a new generation.
and 3. Well, she's my daughter, so pride by default.

According to Liloti, it's a pretty "swanky" elevator. We take that as the highest compliment! Mahalos Kinny...you're awesome.

Great work, I wish I could ride in an elevator like that with some robert drasnin music playing quietly in the background.
Love the mini shag prints on the wall.

All elevators should look like that...

I'm giving her an A+

Pretty cool! I especially like how she made faux bamboo from craft sticks. Nice mask art, too - very authentic retro vibe.

This is awesome! Makes me want a tiki elevator to ride down in to get the tiki bar.

The problem with an elevator like that is that you wouldn't want to leave, and eventually security would have to be called. Great job!

I should forward it to my dad, who constructs elevator shafts
The bright colours are a refreshing change from the claustrophobic stainless steal interiors that elevators usually have. Good job!

This makes me want to take all the clothes out of my walk-in closet and convert it into a "standing room only" tiki elevator so I can listen to my exotica music as my imagination escapes into the womb-like tiki palaces of my mind.
