Attending Dwell on Design as an apartment dweller is a bit like being led to water, but not being allowed to drink...you want a house so bad! The booths showed off numerous great designs that were really fit for houses, particularly those that had nice outdoor views or yards with some setback from the road. Here then, are three more picks, two tile companies and one greywater company that blew me away. (I added links to some nice show posts by Abby and Laure as well). Enjoy!
>> Daniel Ogassian Tiles & Facades: These huge facade tiles were among the most amazing I'd ever seen and instantly made me want to have a house in California, where I could use them. Check out the subtle artistry of these shapes and what they do when covering large walls.
>> Heath Ceramics New Dwell Patterns: Not on sale until August, this new line of three shapes blew me away with its huge range of possibilities. With simple variations in shape and color, the patterns were far more interesting than anything I've ever seen done with regular squares and rectangles.
>> Greywater Corps: This LA based company, founded by architect, Leigh Jerrard, showed off some really cool applications for reusing household greywater, which can account for 80% of a household's waste stream. By redirecting the flow of greywater out of your home, you can irrigate your entire yard, while saving money and fresh groundwater.
"While the homes that we saw on the Dwell on Design Eastside home tour were vastly different from each other in style, an overwhelming sense of nature tied them together…"
