DWELL ON DESIGN 2014 – A Design Celebration


The ‘urban craftsman’ trend continued at the Dwell LA show last month in LA with green design options and innovative designs – chairs from a single sheet of ply, shower heads with integrated lights, modular bedrooms that fold up into a 10” box, indoor / outdoor fireplaces – utilizing space and resources with design flare and environmental awareness.

Cutting edge design and innovative use of material from local and national product and interior designers and architects brought together a wonderful collection of product and displays.
A favorite feature was a ‘braille’ wall – stones placed in a vertical representation of a Raymond Carver poem – clever, natural and beautiful!

This year’s Dwell Outdoor featured the best in landscape architecture and prefab structures including the star of the show, the C6 Series prefab home. This model was designed by LivingHomes staff in collaboration with Make It Right, a nonprofit founded by Brad Pitt and architect William McDonough to build 150 affordable, sustainable homes in New Orleans. The LivingHome C6 series combines clean, modern design with Z6 LEED Platinum level environmental program, and Cradle-to-Cradle CM-inspired materials.

The show continues to be a great melding of modern architecture and design with eco-consciousness.
