As it has in other years, the young architecture firm Stanev Potts held an open house for this week's DesignPhiladelphia festival. Though they've done commercial and residential projects, they may be best known for their Topo lighting, which consists of undulating strips of Plexiglas bound together and designed according to surface and script. When Potts designed the Oddfellows Cafe, the lighting strips were installed to resemble the waves of the mountains in the cafe owners' native El Salvador. You know—that kind of thing.
