"The Chemex Coffeemaker, invented by the German-born chemist Peter Schlumbohm, has been in continual production since 1941, an example of innovative, socially conscious design," says John Stuart Gordon, Curator of American Decorative Arts at the Yale University Art Gallery in our latest Curator's Eye: http://modernmag.com/curators-eye-chemex-coffeemaker-by-peter-schlumbohm/

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.

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.
