A while back we posted some sketch models that were part of the design process underway at D’arcy Jones Design . Since we have released both the Ranger and Cowboy it would only be natural to show the logical conclusion of these designs from the designer’s point of view. D’arcy has posted some really nice images of the finished concept models and elevations for both the Ranger and the Cowboy. These lovely models give you a real sense of the attention to detail that went into the development of these perfectly proportioned spaces. Looking at these makes me wonder if we shouldn’t be offering these models as a collection themselves.
With the official launch of www.formandforest.com less than a month away a lot of you have been asking "Just what are these prefab cabins going to look like anyway?" Some of the more impatient have even suggested the cabins are myth, going so far as to suggest that Form and Forest is actually a snow fort fan site dedicated to the men and woman who build them.
Well I can assure you that the cabins are real and are nearly ready for prime time with just a few more tweaks to go by D’arcy Jones and his cadre of superstar designers. Believe me the final wait has become as excruciating for us as for you. So to satisfy your longing we’re dropping a few spy snaps from the studio. Hopefully you get as excited by foam core sketch models as much as we do. If you need a greater fix be sure to sign up for our newsletter , the february edition is sure to tide you over with even sweeter previews.
Most buildings work pretty well. They keep you dry and warm, but that’s where it stops. The spaces we inhabit on a day to day basis are primarily functional, boring and utilitarian. They don’t even try to make your life better, and that sucks.
Do the people who design this stuff care about what they are creating?
Great design stands out. It makes your life better. It makes you better at what you do. In short, great design makes you happy.
Form & Forest is in the process of designing a line of prefab cabin kits . It is our intention to create beautiful, livable spaces. More than this, we intend to create spaces that enhance your well being. Spaces that help you find a little happiness.
You may think the Form & Forest prefab cabin kits are beautiful. You may even find that they make you happier. If you do, that’s because they are designed for happiness.
