This week’s MotD theme: Golden Yellow

Netherlands-based designer, Gert Eussen, conceptualized and built this honeycomb-looking shed made from scrap wood and affectionately calls it the Coco-Hut. What a sweet, fun-looking shed. I love how he achieved a round shape using straight pieces of wood. How cool would it be to use this as a studio or meditation space.

From the Inhabitat web site about the shed they state:

In conceptualizing the hut, Eussen set out to use scrap wood in a creative and replicable way. The waste wood-cuts used to build the hut are from pine beams used commonly in the Netherlands, the pillars holding the hut are scrap Douglas Fir and the door handle is a leftover piece of Beech wood. Then, the whole thing is held together with wood glue and screws so that it is watertight

From Eussen, he states:

The round shape is also universal. Sitting in this structure makes you feel safe and comfortable. The shape of the hut is also energy- and resource-efficient.


Inspiration for Today

Gert’s shed shows us how with a little creativity and ingenuity we too can make something that’s functional, resourceful, and a joy to behold.

Happy Coloring!
