I love the flexibility and playfulness that comes with modular furniture. This sofa, called Box Hyperactive caught my eye. My kids would totally approve and constantly rearrange our living room.

HeyHeydeHass makes beautiful art object machines.
When they started working on this project they had just two requirements: the automata they were about to produce had to perform a sensual act when being handled – in a safe for work way. They also needed to be simple, beautiful objects when in rest, made from high quality materials. Sexy alternatives to all those Executive Ball Clickers.
Team HeyHeydeHaas does the majority of the work on the Autoeromatons in house and by hand. From figuring out the mechanics of the automata and casting bronze at a local foundry, to polishing till you drop. They are a thing of beauty.

There is not a day that goes by where we don’t get an email being asked to share our CreativeMornings secrets. That’s why, on June 25th, for the first time ever, my team and I are sharing how CreativeMornings scaled its community from one chapter to over 140, in a one day intensive workshop.
If community building is on your mind, com and learn how we built ours of 1,500 volunteer organizers and continue to engage 180k attendees annually in 55 countries around the world. My team and I will share our findings from the last 8 years, what worked what didn’t and we’ll also make time to workshop any challenges you’re facing in your community.
