See your designs in NODE

ArtistChrisHaughton

If you’ve ever dreamed about seeing your designs realized as a hand woven rug, the NODE project by illustrator Chris Haughton with entrepreneur Akshay Sthapit will be of interest. A non-profit, fair trade business the rugs are produced at the Kumbeshwar Technical School in Nepal which trains disadvantaged adults. While many well known designers such as Donna Wilson and Geoff McFetridge were commissioned by NODE and exhibited in the Design Museum in London in 2012 (with rugs still for sale in the shop), NODE facilitates the production of their beautiful woven pieces for any designer.

 

Piero Fornasetti: Practical Madness

IMG_7062

Painter, printer, film director, interior decorator and sculptor — Milanese artist and designer Piero Fornasetti’s prolific talent is currently on full display at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris. The retrospective, which features over 1000 objects curated by his son Barnaba Fornasetti, features his prodigious output of artwork and applied arts including furniture, coasters, screens, umbrella stands, trays, cabinets, chairs and china. With the architect Gio Ponti, Fornasetti designed complete interiors for homes, ocean liners, casinos, and also designed several covers of Domus. With a whimsical, surrealist and poetic style he described himself as ‘a stickler for detail who loves uncertainty.’

 

Bookshelf: What We’re Reading

stapel00

Deciding on one’s summer reading can be overwhelming when faced with so many incredible options. We narrowed down our cultural list from recent visits to some of our favorite museums in New York.

While there are lines down the block to enter the new Whitney  — it’s new shop is accessible to all. This tome gives an inside look on Renzo Piano’s design of the structure. And while weren’t invited to the Met Ball, there are two options for remembering the lovely exhibit China: Thru the Looking Glass, including a limited edition work.

Over at the MOMA newly awarded AIGA medalist Paola Antonelli has edited a volume with Jamer Hunt on the provocative relationship between Design & Violence. And for pride of place on our coffee table – On Kawara – Silence – to remember the powerful recent show at the Guggenheim which comes in three colors to color coordinate.
