bits of inspiration – #99.

I’m very fortunate to work for a company with a lot of employee benefits – including free daily lunch. For this reason I rarely feel any pangs of jealousy when hearing about other company’s office perks. However, seeing photos from DropBox’s San Fransisco headquarters and their beautiful cafeteria, I have to say, made me a little bit envious of the people that get to enjoy that space every day. The 5,000 sq. ft dining hall was designed by NYC firm, AvroKo. Here’s what they have to say about the project:

“Taking inspiration from one of the company’s mottos, ‘sweat the details,’ the design focuses on small features and individually crafted furniture and lighting to transform moods and create a flexible space.”

Check out some of my favorite images below.

#techstyle at the MFA.

On Sunday I visited the Museum of Fine Arts for the opening of it’s newest contemporary exhibit, #techstyle. The exhibit explores technology’s influence on fashion design and was really remarkable to see. Several works were intended as performance art while others addressed the issue of waste and sustainability by utilizing repurposed materials. I was especially drawn to a number of pieces that had been created using 3-D printers.

The show runs through July 10 and I would highly recommend seeing it. Below are some photos I took during my visit. Enjoy!
