Hanging in the corner of the kitchen is the mobile Mead and Boatright created together for Sight Unseen’s “New Useless Machines” exhibition during last year’s Noho Design District event. On the fridge are two giant magnets of the sun and moon that were once part of a lamp at The Future Perfect; the creepy hands jutting out from beneath it were cast by Boatright from her own arms. “We have the same sense of humor, and I think that’s why living together has worked out so well on all points,” says Mead.
