Nomadic Ironing Board

View all 13 Photos

Years ago when the Do-it-yourself platform first encouraged individuals to venture out and have a go at making things with their own two hands a few leaders made their way to center stage printing instructional books on the subject. Among them 1973/1974 handbook in Nomadic Furniture 1 and 2 by James Hannessey and Victor Papanek explored the historic movement of DIY. Likewise, “Do-it-yourself furniture. Exciting designs for your home” edited by Harry Butler gave us permission to try new things like this design for the unique “Space saving ironing board” by chmara.rosinke which inspired the Nomadic ironing board before us. Made for the “Nomadic furniture 3.0. New Liberated Living?” at MAK – Österreichisches Museum für angewandte Kunst / Gegenwartskunst, the package flaunts a vanity that doubles as an ironing station. Included in the multifunctional piece is of course an ironing board, a mirror, light, storage drawer, small table top, and handy hooks.

Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
