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.

“I am only a symbol for all those who have been touched by beauty." - Luis Barragan

Miami Mind

I used to live in Miami and it remains one of my favorite cities and inspirations. Here are a few favorite shots from my recent trip to Maison & Objet Miami as well as some of its iconic architecture and culture.

John Lautner's Total Ideas

April 20, 2015

"So I really learned that you have to have a major total idea or it's nothing, you know; it's just an assembly. What most people do is an assembly of cliches or facades or what-have-you ..." - John Lautner

I am heading out of town for a couple of weeks to retreat with a water fast. Finding encouragement in this quote:

“The one who has conquered himself is a far greater hero than he who has defeated a thousand times a thousand men.”
― Gautama Buddha, The Dhammapada: The Sayings of the Buddha

Looking forward to the other side of this journey - I know from past experience that the renewal will be worth it.
