Caitlin Bermingham
For House Beautiful, Caitlin designed a "sun/root system" that refers to nature within the partitioned suburban landscape. Cloud formations, drawn from a book of weather symbols and meteorology for children, mingle with omnipresent microwave towers being disrupted by solar flares, representing man's inability to control the natural world. The root forms were inspired by trees casting shadows across the pool area. The vinyl floor piece was shown on the back deck over the pool.
