Staff Editor Arwen O’Reilly Griffith was recently a judge in the Core77 Design awards. Over on CRAFT, she writes:

The Core77 Design Award DIY/Hack/Mod category winners were just posted. I was one of the jurors, and loved getting to see all of the submissions; we had a hard time choosing the winner! In the end, Tall Furniture carried the day, with its simple but brilliant idea of raising performers up above the audience to transform anywhere into performance space. I was also particularly enamored by the Secret Passageway Light Switch, which used a book as a light switch, and the Nimble, a flexible candle-holder which makes wax clean-up easy. (I want one!) Congrats to the award recipients!
