I have a strong respect for creatives. I am fascinated by multidisciplinary creatives. Laurie Haefele has been a previous guest on the podcast and she is back, but this time in a very different way.

I named this project “Beautifully Bronzed” the moment I walked in and if you check out any of the videos or images on Instagram or Pinterest, you’ll see why. The finishes are all...

This episode features Nic Neumann, Coo of Sky-Frame, a Swiss company that manufactures frameless doors and windows. They say they provide “a view, not a window.” Their work is elegant, Swiss engineered and Swiss made. Their product is sleek and detailed and that is why I thought you would like to hear a bit more about it. It is always fun speaking with designers and architects about projects, collaboration and one of the challenges that continually comes up is sourcing new product. One...

EP. 121 LA Detroit Part 2 LA Design Festival

The seventh annual LA Design Festival is over but certainly not forgotten. Throughout the four days of events, open houses and executions, there were some truly creative discussions. One of which was the LAX DET conversation comparing and contrasting two cities not often used in the same conversation let alone the same sentence. Detroit is a city on the rise. The city is finding new popularity and those driving that are the creatives. Open spaces for exploration and development. A serious...

EP. 114 Los Angeles Architectural Preservation

5/11/2017

The City of Los Angeles was founded in 1781 and incorporated in 1850. In the years since the city’s founding, Los Angeles has continually reinvented itself, some would say, to a fault. When it comes to architecture and design in Los Angeles, we have always been considered a huge blank canvas, a design lab of sorts. Los Angeles architecture was built on names like; Welton Becket whose iconic works include Capitol Records (56), Parker Center (55), LAX (59) The Music Center (64-67), Claude...

I sat down for this interview with Michelle Workman at a coffee shop in West Hollywood, down the street from the Pacific Design Center. In two years and one hundred and thirteen episodes of this podcast, I am constantly reminded just how talented and amazing the design community is. I would consider this to be a golden age of design.
