Since it opened in 2006, Glenstone has been a small private institution with a fine collection and a low profile. Not any longer. With the inauguration in October of a new building and expanded facilities on 230 acres in Potomac, Maryland (about fifteen miles northwest of Washington, DC), Glenstone has become a must-see destination for modern art enthusiasts, architecture aficionados, and landscape design lovers.

To a dedicated student of graphic design, the title on the cover of this book would be almost beside the point. All the hallmarks of its subject’s work are there: the perfectly square proportions, its bright red color, and the go-to typeface, Bodoni. Totaling 408 pages, Design: Vignelli is an update of the original 1990 edition, and now presents the complete portfolio of Massimo Vignelli’s work from 1954 to 2014 and that of his studio colleagues and his partner in life and career, Lella Vignelli.

Helping Hands: Design Miami Honorees Pedro Reyes and Carla Fernández are Creators with a Social Conscience | Modern Magazine

You will see their credos emblazoned on just about everything related to this year’s Design Miami fair, from the invitations to the walls of the exhibition pavilion. “In true luxury there is no oppression,” reads one maxim. Another proclaims: “The future is handmade.” Design Miami has presented its Visionary Award since 2005, but no one has deserved that description more than 2018’s recipients. Mexican artist and designer Pedro Reyes and his wife, fashion designer Carla Fernández, are on a mission to save whole swaths of humanity from irrelevance due to automation.

Jewelry gets its due as an art form | Modern Magazine

Jewelry is a challenging category in decorative arts. Though more than just ornament, it is often weighted down by religious and cultural associations, and treated as ethnological objects rather than art. But that is changing, as an important new exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York suggests. The Body Transformed, which opened on November 12 and remains on view through February 24, showcases some 230 objects drawn almost exclusively from the Met’s own vast collections, and involving all seventeen curatorial departments.

11/26/2018

The nation’s newest museum, which opened in Columbus, Ohio, on October 27, is the happy result of a collaboration between public and private interests: it is the twentieth national museum designated by Congress and the first institution dedicated to United States veterans, who currently number approximately 21 million. As originally envisioned by the late Marine pilot, astronaut, and senator John Glenn, the National Veterans Memorial and Museum (NVMM) is neither war memorial nor military museum, but is intended to honor veterans of all conflicts, highlighting the role of individual service and sacrifice and placing national events in the context of world history.

Aldo Bakker’s timeless approach surpasses the ebbs and flow of changing fads—certainly those that have typecast the design scene in his native Netherlands. The reserved maverick’s cumulative body of work bridges past and present to challenge the fundamentals of function and production.

"The idea for Engineering Temporality grew out of Markunpoika’s personal experience. His grandmother suffered from Alzheimer’s disease and ended up a shell of her former self. Her inner self— the mind, the soul, the personality—had vanished, but her body, the structure, remained, a ghost of the original being."
