Formed Functional Ornament

Listed as one of New York Magazine’s reasons to love New York, SHoP architects have been designing exciting and innovative buildings since their inception. In true architectural style, the Manhattan-based firm recently released a monograph last month. For a Dining by Design charity event, they created a flat-pack of components that transforms into a cotton “boll” and a quatrefoil petal structure that can be snapped together to build beautiful patterns and a number of unique structures.
