Now Reading: Modern Day Building Blocks
Written 2 years ago by
The Garden Apt. i?s a collaboration between Paris based Miriam Josi and New York based Stella Lee Prowse. The two product designers began collaborating during their time at Parsons The New School For Design in New York City. Graduating in 2014 the two continue to work together and consistently aim to find new use for materials that otherwise would be thrown away.
AdHoc is the most recent project by The Garden Apt., a tabletop game with a simple goal; to build. Segmented plastic water bottles support and connect rounded forms of cork and together act as building blocks. The cork is painted to resemble marble, creating a contrast in materials encouraging the user to consider what determines value in our daily lives.
