Karma inspired art


Art can appear in many forms. The Revero is that it is a functional masterpiece, not all masterpieces are functional. 




Recently, I had the unique opportunity to design and create a small home without any limits on the design.  My 2012 car inspired me to not look at this project as a normal house.  Rather, I approached it as a  functional piece of art, just like the Karma.  Combining form and function is a difficult challenge, but very rewarding when done correctly. The designers at Karma know this well.




The Cube, as I have come to call it, inspires that creative energy and takes the shape of two large boxes, one sitting on top of the other.  Each box has areas carved out of it for porches, windows, doors, etc.  Also, in similarity, much like the Revero was born from the ashes of another vehicle, the Cube was built and sourced 100% from items re-purposed from other construction projects I worked on and from materials found in the local sc**p yard.




Like Frank Wright did for his projects, the design of a home does not stop on the exterior.  The interior of the Revero was an inspiration for the interior of the Cube as well.  Its furnishings are very simplistic in the design and prove that less can be more. 




Art meets function:  On the road and in the home.
