Reminiscing

November 25, 2014

bookshelf

From Wooster to Duane, we’ve moved onwards and upwards (technically downwards) to a new Tribeca office.

Packing gave us the chance to revisit our library. We donated some books to design schools, but have kept many others – their pages filled with memories of great people we’ve met, innovative companies we’ve worked with, and new trends we’ve played a role in. Our bookshelves are a tapestry of our work at Wert&Co. – a patchwork of design, innovation, strategy and technology.

One thing ties it all together:  the human element, the talent, representing the past, present and future of design.

 

32 Days to the New Cooper Hewitt

November 10, 2014

“Renovation” does not do justice to the changes that have been made to this beloved institution. Re-opening in just 32 days, the completely face-lifted, sixty-four room, one hundred plus year old mansion (as well as the Arthur Ross Terrace + Garden and two townhouses on East 90th St.) seeks to redefine the museum experience. Even their font was transformed.

A team of leading design firms joined forces to realize the project. Gluckman Mayner developed the vision for the interiors collaborating with Beyer Blinder Belle. Hood Design tied the garden to neighboring Central Park. Diller Scofidio + Renfro designed exhibitions and a new retail space; Thinc Design conceived the Tools exhibit and Local Projects created interactive media including an Immersion Room where visitors select digital images of wallpapers – or sketch their own – and project them onto the walls.

(Too impatient to wait for the the opening? You can download your own 3D model museum, and engineer your own design.)

 

Rainbow Retail

We’ve been eagerly anticipating the launch of & Other Stories in the US, a brand better known across Europe. Their recent billboard on the streets of New York points to a wider trend in retail design these days – the beautiful colors of the rainbow. Recently spotted by trend firm WSGN at Benetton’s Moscow concept store, the theme repeats thru-out Kvadrat’s new Tokyo showroom in both plexiglass and fabric.
