Ever wondered what a peanut’s apartment looks like? Well a book titled ‘Pete Peanut and the Trouble with Birthdays’ has come to its own conclusions.
Design duo Sean Hewens and Mimi O Chun have created a wonderful series of photographs featuring a peanut named Pete in his apartment filled with mini mid-century furniture. As well as telling the story of Pete the Peanut, the book also features mini replicas of furniture made by design greats such as George Nelson, Josef Albers, Doland Wexler, Eerio Saarinen, Finn Juhl and Florence Knoll.
The book in which ‘a small peanut dares to dream big’ is finished but is raising funds for printing costs using Kickstarter. With 10 days to go, it already has nearly 300 backers and has raised $17,902 of its $25,000 goal.
A whole flock of other people have helped nudge the project along so far including composer Joseph Stillwell, Ersatz Film, Magik* Magik Orchestra, Andrew Vernon, CASAHAUS and photographer Dave Zhou.
