This year, Mighty House Construction was a build sponsor of a design team for the Seattle Design Festival, kicking off this weekend!

Our team, Pop-Up!, focused on making multi-funcional furniture from reclaimed materials donated by Pioneer Millworks, and the results are fantastic. Our role was to coordinate the building of the furniture – from nuts and bolts (literally) and delivery of materials to teaching and orchestrating the volunteers who actually built it. Our team’s design has been getting lots of attention and we are currently juggling the requests for the furniture to be on display at various locations. The current “tour” includes:

  • Seattle Design Festival Block Party in Occidental Park, downtown Seattle (310 Occidental Avenue South), September 6-7, 10am – 6pm
  • Highlighted at 3rd and Stewart as part of the revitalization of 3rd Avenue and will be on display following the festival block party thru [Park]ing Day, September 19.
  • At a Seattle Parklet Site, (a pilot project with public and private partnership).
  • AIA Honor Awards Ceremony, November 2014

You can see it first at the Seattle Design Festival this weekend, so don’t miss out!
