ooba :: new nest convertible crib/toddler daybed + bassinet/play table
"designer scott wilson has created 2 more designs for nursery furniture maker ooba. nest crib is a veneered bent ply crib with the same iconic styling as the nest bassinet. the crib converts to a toddler daybed. the new bassinet converts to a play table + the shell becomes a toy bin."

mod*tot wants to be a monkey for halloween + mod*pop + i were thinking she'd be a cute astronaut, then we asked her if she'd like to be "ham" the astrochimp, the very first astronaut who went into space on the mercury in 1960.

erik of square one design + drafting emailed me today asking if anyone remembers a "scholastic" book from the 1970's described like this:

"years ago in elementary school, i purchased a scholastic book that told the story of a family of blobs. i can not remember the name of the book or the title or author. the story line went like... the family lived in the projects of the big city + one day the evil wrecking crew + the machines they operated came + tore down the family's apartment. so the family went in search of a new home + found a quiet spot to build a new home. they built this home by pouring cement around the dad blob + letting it harden. dad blob would then squeeze out + set up for the next 'room' to be poured around him. (this has got to be mine + many others very first exposure to pre-fab architecture!) the family lived happily until one day in the distance the wrecking machines appeared once again. the family mounted a fierce opposition by creating their own catapult + cannon balls to fight off the wrecking machines." (is that the barbapapas story?)

dwell on design :: san francisco is this weekend!!! i'm going! there are still tickets for you. you can pre-register online or pay at the door. this is where the newest prefab will be presented by the actual architects!
i have to rush to radiation treatment now, but i'll be back to talk more about dwell + prefab..

i'm back. it's very late. i'm like a kid on christmas eve, too excited to go to sleep. i'll get up at the crack of dawn + drive to san francisco for a sneak preview day at dwell magazine's design conference. i may be risking my life. i'm skipping radiation + chemotherapy (i saw my oncologist today. the good news is my heart is stronger. the bad news is my heart is strong enough to restart the drug that damaged it to 39%. i told him i'm busy tomorrow). i'm also skipping physical therapy :: i love my class + teacher. i'll also miss mod*tot + mod*pop + i won't be able to work on anything tomorrow, so i'm mocoloco + risking it all to immerse myself in prefab architecture + modern contemporary design for 3 days.
