RIP Kansai Yamamoto. Iconic in most memories as the creator of David Bowie's iconic looks for Ziggy Stardust. His sportswear helped define the graphic style of the 70's and 80's, and is highly collectable today, along with many designs for eyewear, tableware and more. You'll notice his graphic influence in recent Gucci collections. In the early 90's he would evolve into an event producer with events called 'Super Shows'.⁠⠀
.⁠⠀
"In the early Nineties, after two decades of showing and selling his avant-garde collections in London, Paris and New York, Yamamoto took a hiatus from the fashion world to focus on live entertainment events. His Super Shows, as he called them, combined elements of music, dance, acrobatics, traditional Japanese festivals and other spectacles, and were performed around the world, from Vietnam and India to Russia and Japan. The first such event, in Moscow’s Red Square in 1993, drew a crowd of 120,000." - Kelly Wetherille, WWD.⁠⠀

Sketching for me is an invaluable way to visualize a space, product, logo, packaging concept or whatever we're working on. A sketch can happen on the mythical napkin, on a wall, or here - on the back of a found piece of paper. From the sketch, we'll evolve the concept into plans, CADs, material boards, etc. This is a new space in construction now in NYC (can't wait to share with everyone soon).⁠

We're loving the Covid-safer outdoor dining areas that NYC restaurants are setting up. The city feels - dare we say - almost joyous and certainly festive. Acrylic panels between tables, planted barriers, overhead shelters and more are peppering the streets. It's great to see how each business translates their look, feel, and brand into these temporary spaces. What's a favorite you've seen? Check out the article in the NY Times: https://www.nytimes.com/2020/07/09/dining/outdoor-dining-design-nyc-coronavirus.html⠀

One of the best takeaways from the original Batman series are the graphics, especially the interjections/exclamations used during the fight scenes. The graphics are hilarious, campy and we love them. Here’s a little recap to remind you :)

The Coronapocalypse has forced us all to rethink our every day behavior and businesses. One of the upsides is watching retailers pivot to provide for their customers under the new guidelines for Covid responsibility. Creativity abounds in NYC in restaurants, limited retail, salons, and other businesses. I was walking Madison and came across the Ralph's Coffee set up at Ralp's store at 888 Madison at 72nd and it looks and functions so nicely! Ralph and his team are expert storytellers and here is no exception, nice work 👏👏👏⁠⠀

"A thing of beauty is a joy forever" Poet John Keats would likely agree with his famous quote if he were looking at this very rare Lamborghini Miura, recently restored, and literally found in a barn.⁠⠀
.⁠⠀
If you're unfamiliar with the Miura, this Bertone-designed beauty is more than skin deep, with a ground-breaking transverse engine. The engine and car itself was a product of the engineering team - against the wishes of Mr. Lamborghini himself, so the car's bad-boy personality are correct!⁠⠀

RIP Milton Glaser. His ability to concisely capture the iconic I ❤️ NY message, and feeling in one seemingly simple graphic is pure genius, as were his many other seminal projects for Dylan, Aretha, Coke and so many other projects and collaborations. A wild talent, and incredible humanitarian. We will miss you Milton, and thank you for everything 🙏

Tusquets penthouse, Barcelona (1974) designed by Oscar Tusquets Blanca, Lluís Clotet and Anna Bohigas; the staircase, which was required to be wide, interrupted the lower floor space, so it was decided that it would be transformed into prominent piece of furniture, accommodating other uses, such as for a writing desk, book shelving or storage .

We love how retailers are bringing creativity to the table in the midst of the Coronapocalypse. One of the best we’ve seen is Monc XIII in Sag Harbor. What founder Natasha Esch, Lana and the team has done is reimagine their store as a series of beautiful walk-by vignettes that take visitors through the gardens to peek into the rooms and spaces. Bravo! .

Was researching flight and came across these unbelievable creatures - the Draco Lizard Aka Flying Dragons. The tiny lizards are known as ‘Draco volans’, and over the course of thousands of years, they developed an amazing way to evade predators - flight. Their wings are different than your average bird’s wings, as they are actually a set of elongated ribs, which they can extend and retract on command. Native to south and southeast asia. Incredible! .

Jean Prouvé, Demountable wooden chair CB 22 with aluminum brace, 1947 and Demountable wooden chair no. 301 with steel brace, 1950. In 1947 the Ateliers Jean Prouvé returned to their wartime research into a new wood or metal knock-down chair. Because of a continuing shortage of metal or, perhaps, the rapid expansion of the private home market, the initial emphasis was on a wooden model that gradually replaced the Tout Bois chair. The arrival of a “do-it-yourself chair” was announced by Jean Prouvé during the Meubles de France competition in 1947. The CB 22 comprises two solid wood lateral bases held together by two braces bolted on the outside. One early version was quite complicated to assemble, especially in respect of the mortise and tenon attachment of the moulded plywood back and seat to the frame. The definitive model was simpler, and stresses the knock-down character of the chair with metal washers at the assembly points. The back and seat were initially fixed to the frame with screws, then with tapped studs. The tubes protecting the braces are of steel or aluminum. The CB 22 chair then chair no. 301, symbolically shown disassembled on the cover of the Ateliers Jean Prouvé furniture catalog in 1951, was manufactured until 1953. Find this piece in the two-volume publication "Jean Prouvé", p.76-77, volume 1, available on our e-shop and distributed by DAP and Interart.

Good design only needs to be inventive to communicate and engage. We love this haircut sign, designer unknown, shared from San Francisco in this time of anxiety - and what better way to attract people than with witty humor. Brilliant, inexpensive, relevant and looks like it worked! ✨⁠⠀

Self-sanitizing door handle.⁠
.⁠
Hong Kong-based students Sum Ming Wong and Kin Pong Li were inspired by the SARS outbreak in the 2000s and figured that a self-sanitizing door handle is more effective than the chemical-based cleaning processes we are using right now. The handle is made of a glass tube with aluminum caps at each end and the entire handle is covered in a powdered photocatalytic coating made from titanium dioxide. The bacteria is decomposed through a chemical reaction that is activated by UV light reacting with the thin coating on the glass tube. Powered by an internal generator, the handle converts kinetic energy from the opening/closing motion of the door into light energy and that is how the UV light is always doing its job. This germ-killing product actually destroyed 99.8% of the microbes during lab tests.⁠
.⁠
The self-sanitizing door handle was one of the winning entries for the James Dyson Awards 2019.⁠

Social Distancing would be a pleasure in this great house by LAND Arquitectos in Chile! See the story, link to the story in bio.⁠⠀
.⁠⠀
From ArchDaily: Rambla House, is a weekend house located along the central coast of Chile, at Zapallar City, about 175 km from Santiago City ... The Rambla´s house interior spaces were designed so that there is continuity and a direct connection between indoor spaces and the outdoors spaces, while protecting the main spaces from harsh local coastal climate, characterized by strong south winds and excessive sun exposure from the west. ⁠⠀
.⁠⠀
The house is constructed on concrete beams providing ventilation of the structure to prevent that humidity is transmitted into the interior spaces, a common problem in this coastal area. Over the beams timber volumes where built using pine columns in V shape for structuring. All woods were treated with a white colored product for protection from marine influence and increasing brightness and contrast with the surrounding landscape.⁠⠀

@Pantone has introduced 315 more colors 🌈 ⁣⁣⁣⁣

Designers across different mediums including fashion, home and graphics are in search of more colors to distinguish the products that they create.⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣
Fashion has been one of the reasons why the yellow family has been built up a great deal in the new system, while solar power and other societal factors are also influences. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
“Anything related to the sun is fascinating to people and they know it’s going to be even more important in the future. Social implications, climate change, fashion — it can come from diverse areas. But it all feeds into why we make these new choices and add them to the system,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute.⁣⁣⁣⁣
