The Beauty of Design: BUILD

In case you’re new to my blog, or me in general, I am a huge design fan. Good, clean, warm, Scandinavian design. The fine folks at BUILD LLC, whom I a proud to call my friends, had a documentary short about them released today that I’m hoping you’ll take 7 minutes or so to watch. Today is a special day for the Swedish half of my family, and some of what the build guys talk about, reminds me of some of the feelings I have about my Mormor & Morfar’s house in Eugene, OR. The warmth that not only came from the people who in habited the space, but the space itself. Vast majorities of their furnishings came with them from Sweden.

The footage dives into some of BUILD’s favorite projects, allows them to speak about their design philosophy, and gives a peek at some projects that influence them. Also check out their blog [one of the great Architecture blogs out there]

Have a look.

    Thanks for the kind words Dartanyon – the Scandinavian roots explain your keen eye for design and appreciation of Mormors and Morfars (and Farmors and Farfars for that matter). Honored to be included on TMST.

    Great film, loved the quote about pulling the curtain back and letting people in to achieve better.
