Mocoloco, For One, Interviews Our Ooba Overlord

Harry's got Ooba co-founder and designer Scott Wilson on the line, and Wilson waxes eloquent about his process and his inspiration [for Ooba, unsurprisingly, it's his own daughter. One money quote: "My goal was to create objects that bring the juvenile and adult world closer."].

Mid-century-weary design junkies will find very little in the Wilson ouevre that "could've been made by Eames" [sic], so rest easy; those chromed wire legs on the bassinet are a riff, not a double-disc set of Wilson's take on The Classics.
