Sights & Sounds: Ben Willett
Common Discourse is a project designed to help others (and ourselves) think through creativity, focus, and intentional work—from Alex Tan & Alice Otieno.
Every Tuesday we share words from a few ideas, a quote from somebody else, and links worth sharing. On Fridays we invite a guest to share images from their camera roll and a sound that resonates with them. Words from the Journal come on the first of each month.
Ben Willett is a designer working under the name WILLETTSPACE, designing furniture for spaces and spaces for furniture. I met Ben at Rancho Bar on the same night I told this story a few months back. We’ve stayed in touch since then out of a mutual love and respect for tennis, design, and the niche LA dining scene.
He’s very good at all these things.
Here’s what he sent us this week.
Thanks for consuming!
