For a brief, shining moment at the turn of the century, art dealer Kenny Schachter and I shared an architect.

It was not, however, Ab Rogers, son of Sir Richard, who would build these sweet little nomadic, origami-like, bed/play pods for Schachter's kids' rooms after the clan moved to London.

That red bed pod reminds me of the "Boonie Bug" VW kit car from the 70's:

You forgot "finger-amputating." Danger, Ab Rogerson! Danger!
