Table legs by Phillippe Nigro.
Ikea’s Vika Lerberg legs plugged onto a table top from Door Sixteen.
So in case you’re one of many Bay Area (and beyond) start-ups wary of your ever-lurking funding, fear not, the job can be done quickly and cheaply!

Often stabilized with concrete, it is pressed into formwork in a similar way, and the soil layers create truly inspired effects. Wright Feldhusen Architects, as well as David Oliver lead the way in the Southern Hemisphere where this exciting design technology is beginning to hold its own as a modern (though certainly tried-and-true) method.

Recently hitting Architizer, the San Francisco Chronical, Atlantic Cities, and Huffington Post is the sensational Rapha Parklet installed in the Marina district of San Francisco designed by Rebar, and my friend, Justin Ackerman.
Rapha Cycle Club is a bike and coffee shop that commisioned the work for customers and the public to enjoy. Parklets have been incredibly popular in San Francisco, further utilizing outdoor space and the awesome weather we enjoy here! This parklet was the first in the Marina, and if we can inject a little hip into a traditionally preppy neighborhood, maybe it will be permanent! The city is considering deconstruction of the space due to neighbor complaints that it doesn’t fit the Marina aesthetic.
Ackerman’s work on the parklet oversaw the deconstruction of a Ciroen H-Van, and development of an outdoor space in its body. His work reinvents how we install art in design. It is more than a designed landscape, incorporating sculpture and street art into the space.
San Francisco is a place art-lovers have flocked for decades. I love the city’s bold moves to bring art to a new level of public engagement. And, yey Justin!

I’ve been loving sliding ladders since I saw the one that goes with Pierro Lissoni’s System. I now have the opportunity to search for one for a loft space I’m designing. I’m having a little trouble, because none of the sleeker models have anything to hold onto above the top wrung. Oh design vs. function… Here are some of the best looking I found:
And maybe the winner….
