Shipping Container Home. This year, an innovative and sleek pod-style prefab luxury shipping container unit from Buhaus Built will be on display outside the Palm Springs Convention Center. Designed by cofounders Nate Garnero and Douglas Burdge, AIA, the prefab is a 160 square foot dwelling unit made up of high-end finishes from Dornbracht to Corian. This multipurpose space is designed to be used as a backyard office, guest house, airbnb, and even as hotel rooms. It will be available for tours throughout the run of the Show & Sale. At the 20th Anniversary show, a free exhibition will be available to Modernism Week attendees in the Convention Center lobby outside the doors of the Show & Sale and Modern Design Expo. The Museum of California Design returns to the Show & Sale for the seventh year with the exhibition “Eat, Sit & Be Merry: California Designs for Children.” The post-World War II mid-century modern period was a particularly good time for children’s design in California. Eat, Sit & Be Merry: California Designs for Children will continue the Museum’s exploration of the state’s well-earned reputation as a source of innovative design, in this case through dishware, furniture, textiles and toys on a child-appropriate scale. The exhibition will feature modernist designs.
