At NYC’s French Embassy, New Bookstore Celebrates ‘La Joie des Livres’

albertine exteriorThe replica of Michelangelo‘s Young Archer in the entry rotunda of the French Embassy in New York is about to attract a bookish new cohort of admirers: visitors to Albertine, a bookstore, reading room, and event space that opened Saturday in the Stanford White-designed Beaux Arts mansion. It’s located a few blocks south of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, where the original Young Archer has resided (on loan through 2019), after it was moved from the embassy five years ago.

“The goal for Albertine was to open the space to the public and make French culture more accessible to Americans,” said Antonin Baudry, the French Embassy’s cultural counselor and creator of the project, during a recent interview. Visitors will mingle with authors and browse a selection of 14,000 contemporary and classic books from 30 French-speaking countries. Most are English translations, with some titles in French. “We also plan to host two events per week, so it will be a lively place,” he added.

“Albertine will be unique and not have an institutional look,” Baudry said. The space originally served as a grand private library, the same goal as for the redesign. “The spirit of the place was already here,” he noted. “We selected French designer Jacques Garcia since he can manipulate classical forms with contemporary ambience, to give the place its original charm and purpose.” Atelier Premiere, a Brooklyn-based firm of French craftsmen, painted and detailed both floors.

Louise Sandhaus on Graphic Design, California Style

Unbeige - Fri, 09/26/2014 - 13:41

earthquakesTo understand the shape-shifting nature of the California design scene, look no further than earthquakes, mudslides, fires, and riots. These natural and manmade disasters endemic to the Left Coast provide the cataclysmic title of a forthcoming book by Louise Sandhaus. The designer and CalArts faculty member focuses on five decades—1936 to 1986—that span Alvin Lustig to Deborah Sussman, from Saul Bass‘s mod film titles to Atari video games, with pit stops at Disneyland propaganda posters, Alexander Girardiana, and Early animated abstractions for Robert Abel and Richard Taylor‘s bubbly 7-Up ad of the 1970s. CalArts students are picking up where the book leaves off by identifying, researching, and documenting neglected designers in “Making History,” a course that Sandhaus is currently teaching. Their findings will be compiled in a new website dedicated to California design history. “Earthquakes is a conversation starter,” says Sandhaus. “I want to inspire others to add to the history of California design. There’s a lot of ‘wow’ work and makers that are going to end up in the dustbin of history if documentation doesn’t happen.”

Earthquakes, Mudslides, Fires, & Riots: California and Graphic Design, 1936-1986 is out November 30 from Metropolis Books.

Quote of Note | Daniel Libeskind

Unbeige - Thu, 09/25/2014 - 10:02

Daniel_Libeskind“People used to say, ‘Why don’t you design products also,’ and I would say, ‘I am designing buildings, big projects.’ Then one day a company asked me to design a door handle, and I started laughing because it is the smallest object. But I kept thinking about it and suddenly I had a revelation—why not? I mean, it is something that is part of everyday life. So I said, ‘Sure I’ll design the door handle.’ And I did, and I thought that was it. Then months later I was asked to design a door. And I had this other revelation—first I had the door handle, then a door, then you have to open the door. Then suddenly I realized what an incredible thing I had come across, something that I had never thought about. And that’s how I began designing all type of objects. Large or small, all the things that have to do with design are things we have to use everyday. From there grows the whole idea of the environment. I was lucky to come across these opportunities. And like Frank Lloyd Wright said, ‘To design a chair it is as difficult as to design a city.’”

-Architect Daniel Libeskind

TOMS to Collaborate with Target

Unbeige - Wed, 09/24/2014 - 15:47

toms for targetIn a stroke of good fortune for design-minded gift givers with a charitable bent, Target is linking up with TOMS for a holiday collection of home goods, apparel, and accessories for women, men, and children. All items, from a scented candle and wool blanket to a denim jacket and, of course, classic slip-ons, will be under $50 each. Los Angeles-based TOMS, a past winner of the Cooper Hewitt People’s Design Award, is adapting its buy-one-give-one model for the Minneapolis mega-retailer: for each item purchased from the collection, Target is donating a blanket, meals, or shoes in partnership with TOMS and American Red Cross Disaster Relief, Canadian Red Cross Disaster Relief, Feeding America, and Food Banks Canada. Target estimates that “TOMS for Target” has the potential to provide more than 11 million meals, blankets, and shoes to those in need. The collection is set to launch on November 16 at all Target stores in the U.S. and Canada, as well as Target.com.

Wadsworth Atheneum Receives $750K for Reinstallation of Collections

Unbeige - Wed, 09/24/2014 - 15:34

Wadsworth Atheneum

Did you know that the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art in Hartford, Connecticut is the oldest public art museum in the United States? Now you do. The 172-year-old institution, now in the final stages of a five-year, $33 million renovation, announced today that it has received a combined $750,000 from the National Endowment of the Humanities (NEH) and the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving (HFPG) to fund the comprehensive reinstallation of its collections and to continue related programming aimed at community engagement.

The NEH awarded the Wadsworth Atheneum $400,000 for “the creation of an interdisciplinary gallery with interactive technology” to introduce visitors to the Cabinet of Art and Curiosities: an exhibition of remarkable 17th-century objects, many of them collected by J. Pierpont “Remarkable Objects” Morgan, combined with natural history specimens and other rarities. The space will be part of the reinstallation of European artworks in the restored Morgan Memorial building, slated to open in September 2015. The HFPG grant of $325,000 will fund community engagement initiatives over the next three years through the museum’s “Beyond the Walls/Behind the Scenes” program.

Monotype Launches Exclusive Membership Font Subscription Plan

We've commented before that the TypeKit webfont service included with Adobe's Creative Cloud has made it difficult for other font vendors to compete. After all, who wants to compete with free? Monotype, however, has yet to throw in the towel and has tried to differentiate its service by taking the high road and emphasizing the exclusive fonts within its Fonts.com collection. For example, it has an exclusive arrangement with the respected Stone Type Foundry to make available more than 100 fonts from its collection.

Vik Muniz Designs Perrier-Jouët Bottle

Unbeige - Mon, 09/22/2014 - 17:24

From left, Perrier-Jouët’s Cellar Master Hervé Deschamps and Vik Muniz.

pj vm bottleVik Muniz has demonstrated his range with raw materials that range from diamonds and caviar to dust and recyclables plucked from the world’s largest garbage dump. The Brazilian artist’s latest project returned him to the luxe end of the spectrum, via Art Nouveau flourishes and blush-hued bubbles. Muniz designed the bottle for the 2005 vintage of Perrier-Jouët’s Cuvée Belle Epoque Rosé. The limited edition, released this month, began as a scene crafted from scraps of gold: a dreamy meeting of a gilded hummingbird and the Perrier-Jouët anemone that has graced every Belle Epoque bottle for more than a century. The scene was photographed and applied by Muniz to the Belle Epoque bottle via a gold plate on which the hummingbird—seemingly, depending on how much of the salmon-hued wine one has consumed to that point—flies toward the anemones in the foreground. Notes the artist, “Much as Perrier-Jouët has long embraced Art Nouveau’s love of nature and enchantment, I took the idea of captivation in a natural setting as the inspiration for this motif.”

Inside Louise Fili’s Elegantissima Exhibit

Before we could say “Gelato Fiasco,” Elegantissima: The Design and Typography of Louise Fili had opened and closed at the Art Directors Club in NYC. If you missed the show’s two-week run, which wrapped up Friday in a evening pleasant prosecco haze, all is not perso. The series of thematic interiors, designed by the incomparable Kevin O’Callaghan and sure to inspire a run on violet-hued fainting couches, live on in a short film (below). We suggest following this taste of Fili’s brand of la dolce vita with her stunningly beautiful new book, Grafica della Strada: The Signs of Italy, published earlier this month by Princeton Architectural Press.
