Charles Eames famously said: "One of something may be beautiful, but can you stand to see 100 in a row?"
Well, how about 2,000? Gever Tulley, our beloved Tinkerer in Residence, worked all day in the Tinkering Studio to see what he could come up with with lots of one thing and one thing only. We happened to have around a little over 2,000 strawberry baskets (long story, maybe one day they will be used for what they were originally meant…), and so we piled them all on a table, and started futzing and playing. Using only binder clips to join them, and later on nothing but gravity and stacking, here are some of the things we came up with.
And finally my favorite bit: testing the strength of the pyramid (again made with no binder clips) with our wonderful human test subject: Rowan! Thank you for being awesome.
