Tom Dixon Q&A for The Moment

Tuesday, May 18th, 2010

Recently, I had the opportunity to interview British designer Tom Dixon for T Magazine. We spoke about his presentation at this year’s ICFF, which featured his new INDUSTRY line, the first in a series of limited-edition, self-published books, and a hands-on booth called Flash Factory. And, most interestingly, Dixon revealed his thoughts on the next phase of the design industry.

Check out my interview with Dutch designer Marcel Wanders for Clear Magazine‘s December issue here. Marcel was a real pleasure, speaking about his new retrospective exhibit at the Philadelphia Museum of Art (his first major solo show in the US), how he’s changed as a designer over the last two decades, his latest collaborations, and what he’s learned in his career thus far….

Konstantin Grcic at the AIC

This winter, the Art Institute of Chicago presents German designer Konstantin Grcic‘s first US solo show. Grcic has made a career of subverting and reinterpreting familiar social and cultural references in such a way as to make them strangely, fascinatingly, unfamiliar. His minimalistic work sharpens the senses, making us question common objects we so often take for granted, and how they define the spaces in which we move. Chairs, desks, lamps, kitchen equipment, you name it: all just different enough to raise our antennae, but still recognizably approachable.

I had the opportunity to preview the exhibit for Clear Magazine‘s December issue, and the full story is available by clicking here.
