Living Inspiration: Russel Wright

On Monday, I was lucky enough to make the trek up to Russel Wright's house in Garrison, NY for an undisclosed project. For those of you not familiar, he's an industrial designer from the 60's who built an eco sensitive home called Manitoga. Door knobs are made of rocks, couches are embedded in rocks, walls are made of plaster and pine needles while sliding doors have pressed flowers and plants in between plexy-glass. It's a national historic landmark and open to the public.
