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"!!!! 

Zigzagging .... Brakes Rules & Multiplies Possibilities!

Luca Missoni & artist/design duo Carnovsky 
collaborated on "Zigzagging" .....
expanding Missoni patterns with a spectacular
color & light installation!!!
 
Take a look .... it's fabulous!!!

Sometimes Milan Design Week can feel like a secret society ....
especially for me!!!

But, standing in front of "design guru"  
new Tortona office/studio
I immediately sensed this wasn't a random
collection of oil drums!!!

I knew this was a very specific "Navone-blue" installation,
thought-out with great detail 
by the "accessorator supreme" herself!!!

WOW, I realized I had finally broken
the secret "design code" ....
& maybe I'm really part of this "design thing"!!!

I had "color shock" when I drove by
the ultimate "Palm Springs Accessoration"
& of course I had to stop!!!

How much color can one hotel absorb??? 
Apparently New York-based architects 
think an entire rainbow!!!

Inspired by colors of native desert wildflowers
& an enormous Pantone color card
this renovated Holiday Inn, 
a sublime "celebration of color", 
puts me into total "accessorator heaven"!!!

Hey guys,
What about that tacky Holiday Inn on Tenth Avenue,
it's screaming for a make-over!!!

But, I do see a potential problem ....
other than black, 
what colors are indigenous to NYC!!!

Newest High Line Billboard by Allen Ruppersberg!!!

IMG_6761.jpg
I am madly in love with conceptual artist 
poetic billboard "You & Me" .....
the latest site-specific installation of NYC's

Ruppersberg's work often features 
appropriated colorful posters,
found around Los Angles,
that promote neighborhood events.

This particular piece is a unique scale,
the billboard is 25' x 75',
& incorporates various configurations 
of the words "You & Me" 
creating Ruppersberg's poetic narrative .

Cecilia Alemani, Curator & Director of
High Line Art writes ....
"For High Line Billboard, Ruppersberg creates 
a conversational poem 
set against the skyline of the city.
It's like an advertisement gone crazy!"
