Enduring Modern Classics

Looking back on 2012

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


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


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.


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.
