Blurb from the stray: Nice looking shape for a house… pushing the boundries of construction and taboo of house design.

the aptly named ‘cloud house’ by australian firm mcbride charles ryan is a fun new addition/renovation to an existing dwelling
in the suburb of fitzroy north, a suburb of melbourne. the architects have created somewhat of a novel out of this previously nebulous project which
had undergone a series of alterations over the past century. organized into three parts, each section in the progression through the house
not only lets the user experience architecture developed at a certain point in time, but also integrates hints of foreshadowing for the next modification.
The Strays Blurb: Beautiful interior - seems almost inspired by Scandinavian design. a very big move within contemporary furniture design.
Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesin West (1937), Scottsdale, Arizona
“The Designers from Coordination got inspired by traditional craftsmanship and created the Lean Tables as a result. By using a wedge, legs and a hexagonal boards from local oak form structural entities. At least three units join to become a table. For structural reasons the legs are slanted and as a result the single pieces seem to lean against each other. The shape is contemporary yet individual. The natural material complements many interior styles. The table is available in two different sizes to allow playful combinations.”
Unconsumption reader Cody Boehmig saw our post about this box-turned-lamp, and was inspired to tell us about several of his projects, including his (prototype) “Utilitarian Wall Shelf” made from used cardboard:
It begins as a folded 11″ × 14″ rectangle. Prompted by the instructions on the packaging, the user unfolds it [the packaging, which is a piece of scored, used cardboard] into a flat shape, and then folds it up into a shelf with the help of an easy-to-use letter-matching system. The nails that hold the shelf to the wall also hold the folded shelf together. The final shelf space is 11″ × 7″ and is sturdy enough to comfortably support a full load of average-sized books.
