Cardboard Art Festival

I have to admit that I haven’t been putting out as many chairs this month… and I apologize to all the grannies out there that have had to clutch to a sign post for lack of seating. I promise to get out there in the next couple of days and help you out!

Part of the reason for the lack of chairbombing, has been because of a new project on the horizon. Myself and a few dear friends of mine, are working together on a fun new event called the Cardboard Art Festival.

It will be taking place at Say It Loud, a really amazing design studio (affectionately known as the “orange building” by most peeps)  in the Mills/50 district of Orlando .

We’ll be filling the space with installations made by a team of fantastic artists (like me!) and then holding 3 days worth of programming in the cardboard fantasticness. Day 1 will be a dj dance party, day 2 will have a matinee movie viewing and then a pop up dinner, day 3 will have another matinee movie viewing followed by a concert/performance.

So check it out!

And I promise to put out some chairs this week!

A new/old type of bench



I’m a regular page turner of’s design section so I wasn’t very surprised when I came across something this morning that I absolutely fell in love with.

It features this great tradition of using renewable materials to make public seating in the Netherlands. Florida has an abundant supply of reeds, so I’ll looking forward to making my own version of these benches for SIT.
