Enduring Modern Classics

Looking back on 2012

It’s been an interesting and visually exciting year. We compiled some of the highlights below…

Graffiti-in-Berlin

We finished off 2011 with a trip to Berlin– and exciting and vibrant city. We saw some amazing street art.

Glass-lab

I had an exciting opportunity to re-connect with the glass world through a workshop put on by the Corning Museum ‘Glass Lab’.┬áThe event took place on Governor’s Island in coordination with the Cooper Hewitt museum; master glass blowers partnered up with designers to create original works of art.

Helsinki-Design

In the fall of 2012 we look the designers dream trip to Helsinki Finland for Design Week– the World Design Capital for 2012. The Design Museum is a feast for the eyes. From Marimekko and Alvar Aalto to Arabia and Kaj Franck the museum was filled with many amazing examples of design.

While strolling through a mid-city park in Helsinki we encountered a wonderful public art instillation called “Knit’N’Tag” in which trees got ‘knit bombed’ with gorgeous coverings. For more info on how these were made watch this video.
