Kickstarter of the Week: DHaus Dynamic Living

Our favorite Kickstarter this week is an exciting new project that runs the gamut from furniture to architecture. Modeled on English mathematician Henry Earnest Dudeney's clever way of transforming a square into an equilateral triangle, the D*Table, from the D*Haus Company comes in four pieces connected by removable hinges. Move the four components around from square to triangle, or any shape your space dictates, and you'll find one of the most versatile low tables out there. Each module has different shelving and facets too, giving you a raft of options as you configure the design. DHaus Dynamic Living goes a tick farther than furniture in its video though, suggesting the eventual application of this system in architecture. They envision a house that literally folds out to meet its surroundings, a truly dynamic piece of architecture designed to embrace the outdoors. That does feel rather far away at the moment, but the D*Table looks to be a worthy investment indeed.

Modern Farmer

Farming has come a long way since the quaint notion of a red barn and flowers resting in mason jars. With the launch of Modern Farmer, a print quarterly, website, and online marketplace dedicated to the art of farming and the people doing it well, a new breed of "rurbanista" has its go-to guide. Founder Ann Marie Gardner (who helped launch Monocle and New York Times' T Magazine) was inspired to create Modern Farmer through travels as a journalist and her country life in the Hudson Valley. She saw the need for a media outlet that could address serious issues around food and farming with a global perspective and modern aesthetic.

Photographer We Love: Noah Webb

Noah Webb has been photographing architecture and people's homes for Dwell for about ten years. We just commissioned him again for a project in our upcoming special Prefab issue. His latest personal promotional piece has to be one of our favorites we've ever received—a little "passport" with pages of recycled medium format contact sheet FILM from his shoot archives. Brilliant! We love flipping through it every so often and reliving all of his past shoots. Click through our photos to enjoy some of his latest and not-so-latest work.
