Nine wood species were used in this expansive, luxury bar fabricated by Langin Designs in Santa Ana, CA. Elm burl, tamo ash, macore, maple, cherry, louro predo, ribbon sapele, walnut and ebony were used to recreate an Ironman theme for a theater room in a private residence. The countertop is marble and glass. Inspired by the Marvel Comics action hero, this bar is a fun, playful homage that was entered in the 20th Design Portolio Awards.

Langin Designs also won the Residential Furniture, freestanding category with its "Dutch Rennaissance Armoire" project in the 19th Design Portfolio competition.
