"design universe" .....

But, when I "met" these shiny yellow
molded plastic chairs .....
sitting side by side, in the lobby of the 
I thought they were the cleverest, 
most contemporary & fun version to date!!!

The theme of the 
is "The Imminence of Poetics."
 
Included in the exhibition is world-renown textile artist
 
Her extraordinary "non-traditional" fiber pieces,
blurring the boundaries between art, craft, & design, 
are "color-infused visual poetry"!!!
 
Introduced to this work by my friend the divine SDE,
I was immediately enchanted & inspired ......
the dynamic vitality of color, pattern, texture, & design
is extraordinary!!!
 
Ms. Hicks is an "accessorator supreme."!!!
 
By the way, if you don't get to Sao Paulo ....
her work can be seen in NYC at

Last week, I stumbled upon the Oceanic Galleries 
& they are fabulous!!!

The centerpiece of the Melanesian Gallery is the
ceiling of a ceremonial house 
of the Kwoma people of New Guinea .....
& it is covered with the most incredible 
I have ever seen!!!

Commissioned by the Museum, 
in the early 1970's,
the ceiling is more than 80 feet long & 30 feet wide,
 & is composed of 270 stunning paintings, 
from 24 master Kwoma artists.

I highly recommend a trip to the museum!!!
These galleries are a "must-see" ..... 
& there are another zillion incredible things
in the museum 
that are divine eye-candy!!!
