introducing mr. josh jakus and his fabulous felt bags October 07 2009
so great! lots of fun pieces from this architect by training from berkeley, california.
"using materials in their simplest form so intrinsic qualities show through — and a rigorous design efficiency that strives to get the most impact out of the fewest moves. Josh founded his design practice in 2005 as a way of continuing his lifelong interest in the nature of structure, space, and materials. though his design practice is driven more by intellectual curiosity than pragmatism, Josh is still happiest making things that are meant to be used. Josh uses his understanding of the built environment and how it is inhabited to inform his designs, and he hopes his products will help foster a more intuitive understanding of all objects in the people who use them."
