The aforementioned designers are all quite close, as well. When Shay Alkalay and Yael Maer of Raw Edges had a baby in December, a bunch of them got together to make a mobile as a baby gift, including: Matthias Hahn (“giggleing chickpeas”), Tomas Alonso and Erika Muller (thread-wrapped stick), Jordi Canudas (rubber bow), Ovalle (fabric cube), Shiratori (white book), plus Deddens and Mukai themselves (green wooden trees). The gift hadn’t been given yet when Sight Unseen visited in March. “Today Yael told me, ‘I want you guys all to come over, and we could make a mobile in paper for the baby,’” laughs Deddens. “I said, ‘I think that’s a really bad idea. We should make bibs instead.’”
