Happy monday to everyone. I am proud to introduce the next Pop Up Lunch prototype: The Cuphook (pronounced "Kapook"). I am not sold on the name so if anyone has a better idea, I am all ears. Happy Hooks?

Short term next steps: add color, maybe rubber. Long term: Janette Sadik-Khan, let's talk.

Thank you, Minos Tzouflas, for your welding prowess and Dave Steinvurzel, for thinking of the pegboard as inspiration and, for your ever clever naming ideas ("The Hook Up").

Happy Friday

I wanted to end the week on a nice note. I was popping around the city yesterday and came across Sharif on 7th Ave and 35th. What a nice guy, and what pride he takes in his cart. It was a joyful burst of color on an otherwise status quo block. Have a great weekend everyone.

Lunch Ledge Evolved

The lunch ledge has gone metal! Though there is something about that first prototype, I do believe it has come a long way...more pics in slideshow below. More to come. Night for now.

Ta Da

Introducing the next pop up prototype in development: The Hammock Bag. I still have a ways to go in terms of refining, but the gist is that it is a lunch bag and a hammock, rolled into one. Use it to carry your lunch then open and clip to any fence nearby and voila, instant fun seat. As with all of my prototypes, this one is a work in progress. The next iteration will be more bag-like and more comfy to sit on but - a start!
