Where Children Sleep

Where Chilren Sleep is a new design book by James Mollison.  It’s phenomenal–you see the picture of the child (children pictured from around the world and very different realities) next to a picture of the place (s)he sleeps.  This is particularly relevant to us when we consider conditions in Spanish-speaking countries along with other parts of the world.  The link below takes you to a virtual version of the book.

Go to the “Dormitorio” heading/tab.  What are colchones?  What are almohadas?

Do the products offered seem specific to a different culture or do they seem universal?
