Besides our design, retail and restaurant businesses, Schoos is involved in a number of media-related projects that fall under the scope of Schoos Media / New Ventures.
In the Products division, Schoos has teamed together with jewelry-designer-to-the-stars Melinda Maria to create several unique lines of products, from actual jewelry, to furniture and household items based on the jewelry of Melinda. Unusual concepts like a chair or coffee table shaped to resemble a ring or jewel are available through the Schoos Night store, the Schoos online store or from the Melinda Maria website. Please see our "Shop" section to see some of these products.
Next is the collaboration with hit music producer Tricky Stewart on a number of music related products and ventures. Tricky Stewart is the Grammy Award-winning producer of hit songs for stars such as Mariah Carey, Beyonce ("Single Ladies") and Justin Bieber ("Baby Baby") and is a regular on American Idol. Joint projects with Mr. Stewart include the sound design for an upcoming Schoos-designed hotel in Phoenix, AZ that will have unique music and "soundscapes" designed for each room and event, as well as multi-media art installations. The collaboration with Tricky also promises to lead to a number of unique and developing projects, such as online "webisodes," collaborative art and video projects, and even a line of fashion accessories including Tricky's trademark eyewear. To learn more about Tricky Stewart, please visit the Tricky Stewart website, or, for information about his many business enterprises, visit the website for RedZone Entertainment.
Schoos has also teamed with the family of Miles Davis to create new opportunities for marketing his music and art, including products that feature paintings by Mr. Davis, who was a visual artist in addition to his better known genius as a jazz trumpeter. In 2011 and 2012, Schoos-designed products will be available in connection with the "Miles Davis Experience" tour, a multi-media show that will be touring many cities in the U.S. and abroad. These tour-related products will also be available through the Schoos Online Shop. For more information about this innovative tour experience, please visit the Miles Davis Experience website. Or discover more about Miles by visiting the official Miles Davis website.
Schoos Design is also developing collaborations and new ventures that include collectible hardcover books, a reality-based TV show about design, and art collaborations with other well-known artists.
