Who doesn't enjoy mid-summer dinners and drinks with friends and family on the patio? Coupled with a tiny tear drop trailer as the bar, how can you go wrong? This Pacific Northwest indoor-outdoor dining experience was conceived by atomic design when asked to contribute a display for the 2014 Molly's Fund, Serving Up Style event. Having recently read an article in the New York Times about tiny living and ADU design, Desia reached out to Brian and Jen Danger of zen-box design who were featured in the article in hopes that they would be interested in collaborating. It seemed like a win-win scenario and turns out, it was. In creating the 12x16 foot space, the team utilized every inch and incorporated all reclaimed, repurposed, hand made, found and borrowed materials. The result was even better then imagined. An evolution of design occurred that exceeded the original vision when materials and time became scarce. Through near brilliance and happenstance, the display evolved into a design that all team members were proud of - winning us the coveted 2014 Designer's Choice Award.
A BIG thanks to zen-box design for offering your talent, tear drop and beautiful hand crafted furniture. Thank you to our favorite contractors, Asa and Ian with Living Space llc and Jeff Parrish of Parrish Remodeling. This really could not have been done without you. And thanks to our vendors, Knot-Wood, Mutual Materials and Made by Mabry for lending us the materials and amazing lighting fixtures to pull this off.
