Zanini de Zanine

July 20, 2015

I had the pleasure of attending MAISON & OBJET Miami this year where Zanini de Zanine was honored as designer of the year. As the son of Brazilian designer and architect José Zanine Caldas he comes by his talent rightly. Thomas Hayes and Jeremy Petty of Noho Modern in Los Angeles offer a thoughtful reflection on how they met and worked toward his first showing in the states at their gallery back in 2009 here. I am grateful for Zanine's commitment to honor the history of Brazilian furniture design and construction in his work.

Luis Barragan

July 03, 2015

I'm headed to Mexico City tomorrow and I have a long list to see and do. Experiencing the magnificent work of architect Luis Barragan is at the top of that list.
