A wilted icon at Design Miami/
Tour Eiffel Lamp. Designed by Studio Job, 2012. Carpenters Workshop Gallery. (Image from http://art.sy/artwork/studio-job-tour-eiffel-lamp.) The work of Dutch design firm Studio Job is at once humorous, witty, and ironic, heavy on ornament and always well-crafted. Without fail, I am always intrigued to see what they come up with next as an expression of contemporary decorative arts....

Design Miami Highlights
Herzog & de Meuron's 1111 Lincoln Road parking garage—wonderful mix of cast-in-place concrete slabs and luxury shopping: Josh Owen's menorah caught my eye in Bobby Berke's shop—it's solid, simple and ceremonial, with an integrated tray to catch all the wax! Lisa Roberts, Cooper-Hewitt Board of Trustees member and I had an exciting time experiencing our...
