Casa Scaffali Exhibit

In the exhibition in the Casa Scaffali in the Arsenale, curators Tod Williams and Billie Tsien gave 35 fellow designers a box to fill with objects they keep in their offices for inspiration. Sheila O'Donnell and John Tuomey sent a blue folding chair (left) that they use to sit outside to paint watercolors.

In Francis Kéré's box, the Berlin-based architect placed red soil from his native country of Burkina Faso.

Peter Zumthor elected to place his objects, jars of powdered colors, not in his box, but on top of it.
