Recent Press - Vaga
If you haven't come across Vaga, the beautiful new fashion and arts magazine yet, you should keep an eye out. You won't be disappointed. For issue #4 they asked me to speak with style curator, Natalie Kates. The result was a beautiful 8 pages spread with a very thoughtful interview. Thank you very much to everyone at Vaga.
Every now and then I read about a model describing the suffering endured to make a beautiful photograph. I never had much sympathy, until we started shooting images for Daydreams mirrors. Photographer Jeffrey Schad and I have shot in the rain at the crack of dawn in Colorado (I had to fly home to New York that afternoon with wet shoes), we've shot while standing in the ocean as high tide came in (eventually filling Jeffrey's waders with 40 degree water) and we've shot in the woods in two feet of snow. The latest shoot took place on the beach on Long Island. The images look like a beautiful summer day. In reality, it was so cold, I couldn't feel my fingers for an hour after we left. Maybe models do have a difficult job?
Milan Furniture Fair 2013
The Milan Furniture Fair is just weeks away (April 9 - 14). My latest lighting designs will be on view with Roll & Hill at Euroluce (Hall 13, Stand G02) and at Spazio Pontaccio in Brera. I am most excited about the additions to the Mini Endless collection, which now includes a custom-made brass ball joint for connection sections together at virturally any angle. Daydreams will be on display at Skitsch.
The Kent Sofa for The Future Perfect
My newest piece of furniture, the Kent Sofa, designed for The Future Perfect is now available. Made entirely from natural materials, the design references both mid-century and traditional American upholstery as well as Shaker woodwork. The image below is the very first sofa off the production line. It can be seen at the newly opened outpost of The Future Perfect in San Francisco.
New Installation - Hostaria del Piccolo
The largest Endless installation we've made to date was installed recently at Hostaria del Piccolo in Venice (the Venice in Los Angeles not Italy). Working with Architect Gregory Ginter, we created a single, 100 foot fixture that weaves from one end of the restaurant to the other. Individual tables are lit by four Mini Endless lamps. Thanks to the guys at Piccolo, Vittorio Viotti and Bobo Ivan.
Bergdorf Goodman opened their newly renovated men's department for fashion week in early September and it looks great. Below is an image of one of the Endless fixtures. Thanks again to everyone who made it happen.
GlassLab is a mobile glass blowing hot shop run by the Corning Museum of Glass. Designers are invited to work with the experts from the museum to make prototypes in glass. I was first invited to participate in GlassLab at the Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum. The image below are two vessels we made which reference early American stoneware. I'm excited to have been invited back to do two sessions at the museum itself in Corning, NY on June 5 and June 6.
Daydreams Launching at ICFF 2012
In 2002 I designed a series of mirrors called Daydreams and for ten years I have been trying to get them into production. I have worked with four different manufacturers and countless factories from the US to Italy to China, yet the project always came to a dead end. It has left me feeling a bit like Ahab. Not wanting to give up, I recently found myself looking at the website of a factory that had made a batch of early prototypes years ago. I noticed they were promoting some new capabilities, exactly the capabilities that I had been searching for! We made made a few new prototypes, refined some details and now everything is perfect. I have found my whale. After ten years, I can finally say I am launching Daydreams. They can been seen at The Future Perfect in Manhattan during ICFF.
