One of my favorite installations

at the Brooklyn Museum is

Mounir Fatmi's "Maximum Senstation,"

a work composed of 50 skateboards, 

each covered with a patchwork

of Islamic prayer rugs!!!

 

Referencing the artist's own experience 

of being raised in a Moroccan Muslim family  

living in contemporary France,

is a vivid example of

"cultural of globalization"!!!

 

The metaphor of the Muslim culture of prayer,

meeting the hip-hop skate board culture

is very appealing to me....

or is it the rugs ....

they really are "divine accessorations"!!!

There is nothing is more glamorous than a  
Baccarat crystal chandelier .....
except one that is designed by internationally renown 
Brazilian design gurus 

Mixing bamboo branches, plaited wicker 
& other natural fibers 
with the most world's finest crystal
is lighting genius!!!

A fabulous "accessoration divine"
& a sublime example of "high/low design,"
created by the originators of this design trend!!!

I returned to Carla Sozzani's
10 Corso Como last week 
during Milan's design extravaganza ....
& was again awed by the extraordinary talent of 
artist/designer Chris Ruhs!!!

This time I climbed the circular staircase 
above the gallery .....
to find this brilliant roof garden!!!

There was so much to see.....
murals, planters, furniture, mosaics, all things "art" .....
plus the spectacular garden folly!!!

It is the "ultimate accessoration of accessorations"!!!! 

"Accessoration Supreme" @ New David Zwirner Gallery!

The new David Zwirner Gallery on 20th Street,
designed by architect Annabelle Selldorf,
is stunning & features
incredible "historical" works of art for resale.
I especially adored the spectacular 

But this "quirky accessorator" 
became obsessed with
this sublime quasi-Knoll table,
 encircled by this melange
of brilliantly colored quasi-Eames chairs .....
DIVINE!!!!

Makes any staff lunch a treat ...
wonder how you get an invitation!!!!
