The pool pavilion anchors the incredible site design by @robinson_anderson_summers.la and features a planted roof & metal mesh curtain that provides shade and privacy. Of course, the flared flue by @ironstudio steals the show!

Just in time for #TBT

Designed by @ironstudio, this chair was part of last year's #phillychairaffair for @pathtohousingpa. Local artists and designers turn ordinary furniture into extraordinary pieces of art for auction— raising money for families, children, vets & single mothers who need housing—we can’t wait to see what they come up with this year!! (Swipe to see the concept sketches! #designthinking)
