Finally got to spend some time last week with Murray Moss & Franklin Getchell looking at the new Butch-Craft Exhibition at Moss ........ it's fantastic!!!! There is a NY Times article talking about the show & the designers that is much more articulate than I, and everyone should read it ....... it's on the Moss website.

 

But as an "accessorator" supreme ......... 
I have to attach "my" images of several pieces I especially love!!!

 

Campana Brothers ........ Creatures @ Moss!!!!!!

Remember your kid brother chasing you with yucky, scary rubber snakes and 
spiders when you were a kid ........ I sure do ...... well, 
here they come again!!!!!!

 

I adored the Campana Brother's resin vases in Milan (see blog 4/15/10) ....... but, I think these outrageous vessels at Moss are even more fabulous ........ and they bring back sweet & slimy childhood memories too!!!!

Another sunny day and my nose was pressed to the glass at Moss ...... and these divine stools by New York artist Chrisptopher Chiappa begged to come home with me!!!!
 
Part of a collection of 70 unique stools that have been created by Chiappa since 2003, Moss is presenting an exhibition, "STOOLS," that includes 18 of these works. According to the artist, "the stools became three dimensional canvases, and the decorations became explorations into painting without the inherit apprehension of competing with art history."  The final stool the Eyeball Stool "is a sort of self portrait, which gives the other stools on the rack their own consciousnesses." 
 
They really a fantastic "accessorations" ........ don't you want one too!!!!!

Design Miami 2009 has a wide selection of galleries, focusing on a variety of designers. I was thrilled to see the mix of iconic pieces, including the Hand Chairs from Pedro Friedeberg and the Drawer Chest from Tejo Remy ....... mixed with the work of newer designers, such as Julien Carretero and Kwangho Lee. Included within this range of design is a wide selection of process, technique, materials and silhouette. All of the work is unique, exciting and interesting ...... a delicious feast for the "accessorator's" eye!!!!!!!!!!!
