Before I "shut down" for the week, I need to share this awesome design with you. It's the "Growth Table" by Tim Durfee & Iris Anna Regn. It's great for bigger families and the art supplies compartments are so smart.
According to designers the Growth Table is designed to “create an instant and intergenerational community united by the simple act of drawing.”
“Children impulsively and un-selfconsciously indulge in spontaneous mark-making when presented with a place to sit, a rightly-positioned surface, and colorful instruments with which to draw. The Growth Table creates these conditions–but at a range of scales–to also attract older children and adults who share the memory of countless hours of childhood art-making. The structure activates a public outdoor or indoor space by providing a catalyst for spontaneous social behavior that is both exceptional and utterly familiar. When the form of the Table is multiplied or expanded, it creates a community scaled art-parklett, or transforms a public interior into a literal drawing room.”
