7) Molo

Vancouver- based architects Stephanie Forsythe and Todd MacAllen’s company Molo, is an acronym for “middle ones, little ones”, reflecting the scale difference in product design, as compared to the “big ones” of their buildings and structures. The pair have created huge excitement with their original Soft House concept. By designing prefabricated flexible rooms and walls made from one material, a soft, translucent, non-woven textile that can be compressed to two inches or opened to 25’, a flexible relationship between private rooms and open gathering spaces are created in the home. Originally, the wall was designed to display Molo’s signature products, a floating, insulated tea lantern and teacups constructed of hand-blown glass. “We believe it’s profoundly important to slow down and enjoy a moment – it’s the difference between having a direct connection to physical experience as compared to many of the distanced and virtual communications and modes of living that most of us have,” Stephanie Forsythe explains.

The Soft Wall is still in development, so no price is available yet. Teacups in sets of two are $59, the tea lantern including glass infuser, lid and candleholder is $159. For more information about Molo designs or the Soft House concept visit
