New Year, New Furniture!

MOD is pleased to announce the release of our newest piece, the 3-4-5 Table!

Named for its 3 components, 4-sided bases and 5-sided tops, the 3-4-5 Table is a modular cocktail table composed of 3 geometric solids of different sizes. The irregular, geometric solids fit together like puzzle pieces to form a large, 6-sided table, or they can be distributed around a room in different configurations.

#tbt: AVA at Make Room - Modern Design Meets Craft 2013

It was about one year ago that the first prototypes for AVA were unveiled at Fort Mason Center in San Francisco. As part of a new initiative by the American Craft Council, eight designers were asked to take inspiration from an exhibiting artist and showcase the work in a room-like setting. Min | Day was one of these designers and chose to work with ceramic pieces by exhibiting artist, Kris Marubayashi.

Inspired by the formal presence and material qualities of Kris' work, Min | Day's space tried to respond to the environment of a collector and asked:

  • How might a collection be displayed in a way that is active and ever-changing?
  • How might a room change in response to a growing collection?
  • How might a collection be viewed in order to highlight new and unexpected ways of seeing a collection?

The result of Min | Day's exploration is AVA, a stackable display system to highlight collections, books and other precious possessions. The geometry allows for multiple stacking options from the simple and repetitive to the highly dynamic and unexpected.

If you're in San Francisco this weekend, check out this year's show, which will include spaces designed and inspired by John K. Anderson Design (w/ pieces by Eliot Stith and Kris Marubayashi), Tyler Dawson Design (w/ pieces from Victor DiNovi), Hwang DeWitt Architects (w/ pieces by Lilith Rockett), Jiun Ho Interiors (w/ pieces by Kathy Colt and Emily Dvorin), Alison Damonte Design (w/ pieces by Ealish Wilson and Lilith Rockett) and April Powers Interior Design (w/ pieces by Shelley Martin).

Soft Stones Seating featured in Kaneko Truck-A-Tecture Show

As part of Min | Day's installation in Kaneko's Truck-A-Tecture show, Soft Stones is used to convey the flexibility inherent in mobile architecture. Truck-A-Tecture is on exhibit at Kaneko in Omaha, Nebraska from June 27-August 23, 2014 and features new proposals from notable architecture firms which examine architecture as redefined by mobility and technical expansion.

Min | Day's installation, PNEUMAD is a combination of PNEUmatic (air-inflatable) architecture with a noMADic ethos. The PNEUMAD enacts a form of anti-heroic desire to escape permanence, solidity and place-bound dwelling. Recalling the revolutionary-experimental fervor of 1968, but with 21st-century technical sophistication, PNEUMAD is prototype for nomads who want to spread out. The inflatable offers one distinct advantage - it is not limited by the dimensions and volume of the vehicle itself. A very compact trailer can let loose and relax. Complementing the mobile structure, PNEUMAD has no interior plan, no fixed infrastructure - everything moves. MOD’s Soft Stones allow the nomad to resist fixity inside as well as out.

Highlights from ICFF

No one could resist pulling Soft Stones apart to give it a test-sit.

No one could resist pulling Soft Stones apart to give it a test-sit.

Creativity with a purpose seemed to be the trend at this year’s International Contemporary Furniture Fair. A trend that made the fair the perfect venue to launch MOD. We debuted our new line of modular furniture to a swarm of designers, editors, retailers and manufacturers who got to interact with the pieces and meet our team.

The Soft Stones seating set was a standout. MOD’s premiere product is available in July. A waiting list has already started for the much anticipated AVA sculptural storage system and the PenTables collaborative table. We are excited to announce pre-order availability and pricing details of these newest products at an event later this summer.
