Design Ideas that Resonate with Your Children (part nine)
I became acutely aware of my aversion to “going with the flow” when pregnant with first child. Perhaps, that’s when I realized that every little step matters. It has consequences. It is being observed and emulated. Clearly, I have to make sound choices. I need to be a responsible role model because children love copying their parents.
In that spirit of constant growth, an architect-DIYer, lucky enough to be my own client, I strive to design for evolution, to initiate opportune moments rather than wait for them to happen. Don’t you?
Design ideas file tip #9 / wine storage:
SHOW, DON’T TELL
Problem: Working on a wine bar project for a client who lacks integrity.
Solution: Resign with conviction — expand instead of shriveling. Have courage to put the work already done to good use. Create my own product — an expandable wine rack with visual appeal.
Added Benefit: Something new to show to MoMA Retail Division buyers.
