Modernism Week

February 16, 2015

Palm Springs Modernism Week is upon us. Although I'm not attending, it feels like an invitation to remember the work of some of my favorite architects, artists and designers.  In the words of Ezra Pound, "Make it new!"

Form and Volume

February 02, 2015

French designer Pierre Guariche was said to have been motivated primarily by form, quality, and volume in his furniture designs. In the 1950s he became the designer behind Belgian company Muerop where he was able to create clean, elegant pieces that were industrially produced and accessible. Although he is best remembered for his lighting, his leather G1 chairs are a favorite of mine, and I am reminded of his influence in design almost daily. We all stand on the shoulders of giants.
