Yves Béhar is the creative director of Jawbone, a noted product designer (One Laptop Per Child), and a surfer, and for Miami’s annual art week he created a gallery as surf shack, bringing a very modern and South Florida vibe to four walls and place to stash your boards.

Béhar, whose design shop fuseproject has offices in New York and San Fransisco, said, “It’s the shack I’ve always wanted to build. Boards are one of the remaining bespoke craft objects. They’re always customized to your height, weight, and requirements.”

And indeed, the boards and art in the shack belong to Béhar himself. With the Miami art event just concluded, the structure will be disassembled and shipped to Marin, where Béhar lives, to be rebuilt and used not as art, but as a place to stash his wave riding vehicles.
