Sorry, I have to repeat myself. The sheer limitlessness of the imagination has me constantly amazed. This is so simple and beautiful, but who would ever have thought to make it? Somebody did.

Beautiful idea...that's one that's going into my 'dream house' folder! JJ, that's what's so wonderful about the imagination...it's like magic, the ability to imagine the impossible and the non-existent...and then make it possible. That's how civilisations get built, and it's what gives me hope for humanity's future...as long as we can still imagine a better future, we can change ourselves and we can build it!

Nice, Ruthie. Form usually ought to follow function, but in the case of this "wind shelf", surely the "function" is to inspire and delight. So the form *is* following in the slip stream of that higher function.

Where do you find all these amazing and beautiful things Ruthie? You never fail to reveal some new treasure everyday. And I second mermaid in the attic, definitly one for the dream home file.

Good point, Richard. I agree.

ruthie said...

Christina, i so agree with you

Richard, perfectly put. I am so often astounded at the ugliness or mundane nature of design, surely we should be surrounded by beauty, there really is no excuse.
