One of my gal pals Emily is an object designer...isn't that cool?? She designs OBJECTS. There's something so cool about how useful that is to society. Emily, like her designs, are the perfect combination of beautiful and practical. Her latest design series "Hang Well" is about engaging at risk youths with their environment using tool free furniture and objects. She has created simple, small scale, wall furniture pieces out of honeycomb cardboard; making it low cost and interactive, yet still incredibly beautiful to look at. The funnest feature being the cardboard is entirely ready to be drawn on, scribbled on or otherwise decorated by their owner!    

I got to interact "first hand" (!) with her pieces for the official product shoot...check out some of the shots below.
