Daniel Arsham uses the calm monochrome room for sleeping, dressing, studying, and storage, as it is part of a larger 2,500 square foot collaborative workspace that he shares with other artists and designers. So, while the “Box/Box” might not be the ideal home, it is a fascinating study in what can be achieved using alternative materials [8] with a view towards cost efficiency, creative reuse, and accelerated design. We’re not sure about the thermal properties [9] of ping pong balls, but we doubt this experiment was intended to be replicated, which basically means that this incredible project is and will remain one of a kind!
