‘Measuring the Universe’ – an art installation by Slovakian artist Roman Ondák first installed in the Museum of Modern Art in New York City in 2007. Over the course of the exhibition, attendants mark Museum visitors’ heights, first names, and date of the measurement on the gallery walls. Beginning as an empty white space, over time the gallery gradually accumulates the traces of thousands of people. Measuring the Universe turns the domestic custom of recording children’s heights on door frames into a public event, referring through its title to humankind’s age-old desire to gauge the scale of the world.

There’s an abundance of tables designed to accommodate family dinners, and a wide range of small art desks for kids, but Growth Table by designers Tim Durfee and Iris Anna Regn is the first family-sized drawing table we’ve seen — and it’s truly inspiring. Durfee and Regn offer, “Children impulsively and un-selfconsciously indulge in spontaneous mark-making when presented with a place to sit, a rightly-positioned surface, and colorful instruments with which to draw. The Growth Table creates these conditions — but at a range of scales — to also attract older children and adults who share the memory of countless hours of childhood art-making.” One of the main intentions behind the design of Growth Table is to “create an instant and inter-generational community united by the simple act of drawing.” Since kids spend such a great deal of time at a desk, to either do homework or pursue creative endeavors, this unique furniture presents an opportunity for a child to be engaged and nurtured in a group setting, as opposed to being isolated at a miniature table or desk of their own. And wouldn’t Growth Table be the ultimate instant setting for home schooling multiple siblings?

Growth Table //
designed by TimDurfee & IrisAnnaRegn

Growth Table is one of a series of objects and spaces modified from a variety of familiar types to sponsor specific activities for adults as well as children. It creates an instant and intergenerational community united by the simple act of drawing.

Children impulsively and un-selfconsciously indulge in spontaneous mark-making when presented with a place to sit, a rightly-positioned surface, and colorful instruments with which to draw. The Growth Table creates these conditions – but at a range of scales – to also attract older children and adults who share the memory of countless hours of childhood art-making. The structure activates a public outdoor or indoor space by providing a catalyst for spontaneous social behavior that is both exceptional and utterly familiar. When the form of the Table is multiplied or expanded, it creates a community scaled art-parklett, or transforms a public interior into a literal “drawing room.”

Here’s another classic villa from the studio of Marià Castelló Martínez, like their others we’ve covered, also on the island of Formentera. In Es Pujol De Sera they realise their contemporary version of the spare architectural tradition of Formentera. Set far from the sea in the inland region, one entire side of the compact and simple live/work space houses an architecture studio. The program is work on one side, live on the other. Even the plan displays the austere geometry that is their signature. The spacious studio provides an unhurried setting for devising thoughtful architecture. The working side of the house is just as open and inviting as the basking and lazing side. Very spare and dry detail makes even bedrooms not too private, should clients happen upon the live side of the live work space. The villa is surrounded by the smell of rosemary, and is set in a region with wheat and barley fields. The topography inland is flat and the inertia of these surroundings is reflected in the flat affect of the villa itself. But, by not distracting, these spare surroundings help create the wandering and dreamy space that helps in assessing creative design work like modelling architectural ideas. Iroko timber and glass are used down the length of this central divider/service unit that separates the working from the living area. A small setback around the edge in section creates the sensation that the building is floating over the site to transition between the manmade and the natural environment. Even island paradises can have a tumultuous climate, especially in winter. But this will weather it. Perhaps in several centuries, the good bones of this spare structure will have aged to resemble the surrounding artefacts.<br />(Both this bed and the guest bed are Murphy beds that can be placed up against the central wall in the daytime.)
