No, sorry, that’s not right. A New York Times story today reports that “the beverage rivals are racing to become the first to produce a plastic soda bottle made entirely from plants.” And in all sincerity I hope they both get there soon. But in a load of BS so incongruous with a century plus rivalry between two industrial giants, the piece ends with this quote from Pepsi’s VP of global beverage packaging: “We don’t feel it’s a race” Ms. Lefebvre said. “We feel like were all working together to do better for the environment and also to make good business sense.” Yeah right.

I’m really proud of this table I just did for Dolce Vita. I had drawn it as a super simple, single piece welded brass frame. But I went and double checked the freight elevator and stairwell in the Puck building and knew there was no way in hell it was going to get up to its new home. It had to be made in pieces. Oh but where to put the seams?!?!? Hide them in the corners or bury them in plain sight? I came up with this little cube detail for the middle of each side with reveals around it and used it as a coupling that slides into the four corner elements and holds it all together. I was nervous that it would look fussy and silly. I don’t think it does. I’m psyched. Looks good. Check it out.
