A pair of design projects by the author--a lakeside cottage addition and a folded paper lamp--inadvertently cross-pollinated during their contemporaneous, though seemingly independent development. Both involved handmade drawings and models, and provide an opportunity to argue for employing metaphor, analogy and deduction as conceptual design tools. The pairing facilitates discussion of the usefulness of derivative inspiration, the adaptive reinterpretation and absorption of foreign influence into a fluid design process that works to resist unhealthy preconception, remaining, instead, open to invention.
