WTF, DWR MDF! LOL...



So there's this little joint 27 blocks due south of our haus called Design Within Reach. Heard of it? Anyhoo, they are having this thing called M+D+F. They say it's a little something like this here: "M+D+F 2009 is a juried exhibition of innovative furniture by emerging designers in the Austin area. Organized by the DWR Austin Studio and juried by local creative professionals in the design, architecture, art and fashion worlds, M+D+F provides an opportunity for peer, public and professional recognition for up-and-coming designers and firms."



Not that I'd call myself an up and coming designer, but I'm thinking about entering this gaywad lampshade in its pendant form, AND doing it outta bamboo veneer to make the hippies happy to boot. See, you can grow bamboo better than your beer gut, so it's environmentally friendly. Anyhoo, back to the wailing child and her milk concerns. I'll let you know when I get the rejection letter in the mail. Don't worry, Claire has her mother's disposition.

i dig the bamboo angle. did you figure out how to attach the ends? maybe a vertical piece of bamboo with a slit up the side and then insert both flat pieces????? no screws required?

I love the lamp and wish I had one of my own. I hope you pursue this - it's right in line with the nifty stuff DWR showcases.

Good luck!!

Never told you this, but I spent like 3 hours reading your blog one night a month or two back. It is a fun and informative read! I love the lamp...it's so Georgia O'Keefe. I think it will show well at the (D-acronym I can't remember now).

BTW-
I have to add that you are SO not an "LOL"er. Everytime I check to see if you've updated and I see the LOL I think it's kind of funny because I've never seen you write that.
