Olson Kundig Architects have put together an awesome project that they call The Brain. The office is about the closest match to what I envision for my own ideal workspace (I'd replace the piano with another couch, table or bar). In addition to the brass fire poll, I love the inclusion of a window at dog height. Our pups would love it. Images from Olson Kundig Project: The Brain
Project: The Brain
This lovely piece of furniture, especially created for kids, brings together a table or a mini-writing desk, a few elements resembling kitchen items and a dresser. Put them all together and you have a compact, organized and totally not messy toy for children. And if the “tidy” part of the project does not impress that much, just think how much fun and educational this kind of a project could turn out for the kids.
