model building

February 15, 2014


Last weekend as we were bracing for more weather, my friend Johannes was building a project – on Facebook! Johannes Knoops shared his blow-by-blow process via the building of a model with us all. The images all had a vaguely Wes Anderson quality, and I found myself waiting for chairs to be painted and customers (small plastic figures) to arrive.

It really was the first time that I felt like the process of putting together an interior project was understood. Johannes showed the custom elements of the project: handmade lights, inventive upholstery, and showed how some things are good enough – the classic Thonet chair. I applaud Johannes’ use of social media to show the world the thoughtfulness and attention to detail that an authentic project requires.
