My Highlights from The Salon: Art + Design 2014
Elegance of line and form—the chaise lounge reduced to its bare minimum.
A classic, evocative of a chief on a throne. This piece exudes power and confidence.
A Salvador Dali-esque table with surrealist spindles.
Lively, springy, and silvery!
Remarkable bar designed as a freestanding object in frozen motion—a bar on skis!
The chunkiness of the glowing alabaster combines the incandescence of light with a virtually molten form of rock.
Gorgeous form in which the pattern evokes lights reminiscent of the overall shape of the vase.
A smashing and dramatic chair that looks like it is alive.
The elegant use of linear elements creates space in a modern way, yet harkens back to historic Pompeiian precedents.
Emblematic of Frank’s distinctive use of minimal form and luxurious materials.
Wonderful use of a single folded sheet of bronze to support a table top; it gives the piece a feeling of motion.
Brilliant riff on De Stijl architectonic vocabulary, applied here to a functional object.
Amazing photo of a 17th century observatory that is as modern and minimalist as anything designed today.
