My Highlights from The Salon: Art + Design 2014
Somewhat by accident, the pieces and objects I chose all seem quite elegant and formally restrained except for one detailed aspect—whether it be the intricately tooled surface of the small pillbox or the hard structural angles of the Rietveld chairs. Interestingly, as a selection, the pieces seem quite contemporary when in fact many are close to 100 years old. I think it's interesting how many of these now classics have seemed contemporary, classic and trail-blazing for most of their histories.
I love this selection in short, and I love it all together. The Big Plug is more a guilty pleasure…bacon cheeseburger.
