Please join OWA member Marian Ring in an evening of "show and tell" at Ono Maze, a Pan-Asian restaurant, and her most recent design project. Come, mix business with pleasure and gather for a cocktail and appetizer and/or dinner (or have high tea) as we discuss the process of restaurant design and the use and promotion of green materials in design projects. Ono Maze recently won a City of Walnut Creek design award for "successful remodel for the year 2001" and has garnered high acclaim for it's delicious food from the SF Chronicle and Contra Costa Times.

Marian Ring specializes in the design of restaurants and other public spaces. Educated at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in Interior Design and Architecture, Marian opened her practice in San Francisco in 1990 and moved her business to Walnut Creek in 1998. Marian credits the work of California Women in Environmental Design (now merged with OWA) for guidance in shaping her philosophy of design which links beauty and function to the innovative use of sustainable and recycled materials. Marian has designed and managed the construction of many restaurants in San Francisco including, Ti Couz, a Breton creperie; Rohan Lounge, a hip Asian bar featuring Korean soju; and Standing Room Only, a European style deli; The Palace Cafe in Sunnyvale and now, in Walnut Creek, Ono Maze. On the drawing board is Jelly's Pier 50, a dance cafe, in San Francisco.

Join us to talk shop, see samples of new green products and spend some social time together. Please RSVP via email by May 12th.
