One of Columbus?s architectural treasures, the Miller House and Garden, designed by architect Eero Saarinen, opened in 2011 for public tours.

[8] A network of members-only co-living spaces branded Norn have launched in spots across Europe and the U.S., which are designed to train guests in the “art of conversation”. [8] Built in 2009, the 250,000 square-foot (23,0000 square-metre) centre comprises a cone-shaped exhibition centre designed with a skylit atrium and a spiral ramp connecting all of the 14 science-themed galleries; a dome-shaped 150-seat planetarium showing 2D and 3D dome/sky films; and a low rhomboid convention centre.

Helvetica was designed at a time when modernist architecture removed superfluous decoration to show a raw silhouette. [9] Most recently KDI undertook the creative vision for the re-launch of world renowned Parisian nightclub L?Arc, designed a limited edition camera and case for Leica called the “Correspondent” and launched a 20 piece furniture collection with CB2. [10]

KDI touts a portfolio of noteworthy ventures around the world, with a range that includes Paramount Bay a 47-story bay front condominium project in Miami, development of pop-up environments for Pepsi?s new Kola House hospitality brand in Milan and Dubai, luxury suites in Las Vegas and Miami Beach for the SLS Hotel brand, a collection of ceramic tiles for Lea Ceramiche and created a collection of sunglasses and watches for the Brazilian brand Chilli Beans. [10] The idea behind the Helvetica typeface, which inspired our other collection of watches, comes from clean lines and readable shapes. [9] So the Mondaine Helvetica No. 1 collection of watches was born. [9] For Mondaine, we go further by producing an eco-friendly collection of watches called essence. [9] Our watches are produced using the best quality materials, from ultra-scratch resistant sapphire crystal to superior stainless steel to soft, leather calfskin leather, you can be rest assure that when you buy a Mondaine watch, you are buying a high-quality, durable, and reliable timepiece that has been curated under years of experienced, precise, and highly skilled craftsmanship.

He had decided to leave it to me because of my love for watches and but also the engraving on the caseback: 1967–the year he purchased the watch and also my birth year. [6] After two years, I began working on designing watches for Yves Saint Laurent (at the time, Cartier had the license for their jewelry, accessories, and watches). [6] What I like most about watches is the fact that time–it?s not tangible, right? Time, the way they calculate time, to me, is still a mystery–exactly like the way we put flavors in a sauce. [6] I didn?t know that every piece in each of those watches is decorated in a different way. [6] After some success with these collections, I started to design watches for Cartier. [6] As for traditional watches, we need to communicate differently to the younger consumer and even change our mindset in terms of design.

[6] “Even though it?s a Swiss watch, I feel like it?s kind of the American idealism of what luxury watches represent,” Lutz says. [6] When I talk with those guys, it?s usually more about drinking and eating! It?s sometimes about watches, but not so much. [6]

Today, Wever, who lives in a separate house on the property, watches over the facility, leads VIP tours, manages security, coordinates volunteers, and trains the house?s docents. [5] I?ve got a little collection, you know, just six pieces, my go-to watches. [6] He?s definitely not getting any watch from me now! However, when he is more mature–and if he has an interest–I will obviously share with him the knowledge and the pleasure of having watches, along with the importance of supporting the craftsmanship that goes into creating those watches. [6] We were the first to use aluminum in couture watches, plastic in watches–we were the first to use porcelain, exotic material, and steel in fine jewelry. [6] That is difficult to answer today, as many young people do not wear watches. [6]

Eero Saarinen had first designed for the Millers a summer house in the Muskoka region of Ontario, Canada. [5] Located in Southern California, a few steps from the beach, this house was designed by Tom Stringer as a place to share ideas in an atmosphere that is comfortable and sophisticated at the same time. [13] Located in London?s Covent Garden is a playful penthouse apartment designed by Studio Ulanowski, who gutted the interior for a fresh start.

As these five pavilions by emerging architects propose, creative design can turn trash, quite literally, into the building blocks of the urban environment, while emerging technology paves the way for a more sustainable future. [14] We break the monotony by delivering high design structures crafted by the world’s leading designers and architects. [10] The project unites over 70 of the world?s preeminent architects, artists and designers to create an exclusive series of prefabricated, livable spaces.

[9] It?s all part of a concept to support young architects, for whom getting a first big commission can be the biggest challenge of kick-starting a career. [14] It?s a stirring work by a visionary architect who left us well before her time. [4]

“The tower?s exposed exoskeleton reinforces the dynamism of the design,” said the architects.

I?m a very technical architect and very passionate about, but at the same time, due to my career path, because I went from architecture into design. [6] In 1953, Miller, then chairman of Cummins Engine Co., commissioned Michigan-based architect Eero Saarinen to conceptualize and design the home, which would be used not only as a year-round residence for Miller and his wife, Xenia, but also as a place for the company leader to entertain the scions of industry — a space that didn?t exist in Columbus at the time. [5] Sharing a design sensibility with the client gave the architects a platform from which to depart from the aesthetic and spatial norms for Victorian renovations in SF, where clients often want to disrupt any divisions between kitchen/ dining/ living room areas to make one big, grand, open space. [16] The architects call the individual spaces “stages,” each room made to showcase the client?s favorite objects: works by Arne Jacobsen, Carl Hansen, and B&B Italia. [16] He saw Kelly’s work on a home tour and on Houzz, and we had gone through all these architects. [12] FGR Architects has brought the best of simple, minimalist design to Wildcoast Road, Portsea, by creating a rectangular module home that effortlessly s.

[5] Their architect, Kelly Cusimano, created an L-shaped plan for a new, two-story home with a standard front lawn sized for the neighborhood, but a big, grassy backyard for more serious playtime. [12] Their architect was Kelly Cusimano of Cusimano Architect and their interior designer was Meg Lonergan of Meg Lonergan Interiors. [12] “A creative collaboration between Edmonds + Lee Architects and a designer client leads to a surprising, light renovation of an old San Francisco Victorian. [16] Make a trip to this German town, and you can follow in the footsteps (and sleep in the studios) of iconic architects and designers. [13] When I?m on the side of the designer, I?m also not enough, because I?m an architect. [6] These rooms are anchored by only the lightest of moments– what the architects call a “hearth cube,” tethered on the ground floor by the fireplace in the living room and pulled through the house by the staircase, tying the floors together with a delicate glass wall that winds its way through the house alongside the staircase. [16] Architects Saarinen and Roche?s open floor plan, marble walls, and spectacular cylindrical fireplace evoke primal memories as light trickles in from the skylights, which are set in a grid pattern that is supported by a set of 16 cruciform steel columns.
