D MET Design: Back for Round Three!

D MET Design returns for a third Dlectricity!

“{The Amazing!} House of Fog: il Cinema Nebbiosio,” brings the fun-house to the 21st century using light and technology. Inspired by amusement park attractions from a time when electric light and motion pictures were things of wonder, “{The Amazing!} House of Fog” is intended for people of all ages to enjoy the beauty and miracle of technology.

Led by husband and wife team Joel Schmidt and Liz Skrisson, D MET has won awards for their home, commercial office and retail interior design. Schmidt also works as a lecturer in Architecture at the University of Michigan, and Skrisson is LEED accredited in Building Design and Construction.

You can see their award-winning design and architecture work on display around the city. Check it out at 4130 Cass Avenue (exterior architecture and interior architecture of La Feria Spanish Tapas), Great Lakes Coffee Roasting Co. (architecture, interior design, furniture design), and Canine to Five Doggy Daycare (façade renovation).

You may remember their projects “Mike Teavee: ‘Am I coming in Clear?’” from Dlectricity 2014 and “Frontier Town: A Tent Camp for Children in the Urban Wild” from 2012.

D MET’s project will be located in the family-friendly “Electric Park” zone on the lawn of the Detroit Institute of Arts at Woodward and Kirby. Thank you so much to the DIA for hosting this project! Other projects in “Electric Park” include Carrie Morris’ “The Shadow Puppet Circus Sideshow” and Arts & Scraps’ “Light as a Shadow.”
