Zio Baritaux

Building Block

Building Block

The first collection Jil Sander showed in Paris in the mid-1970s was a total critical miss. Deliberate minimalism in that frilly‚ chrome and earth tone decade was anathema—incomprehensible in the midst of oil crises and Vietnam. Over the intervening decades though‚ the object lessons of Dieter Rams‚ John Pawson‚ Tadao Ando and others have filtered down […]

Tokuhiko Kise is not complicated. As the maker behind Japan’s TRUCK Furniture‚ perhaps his strongest quality is that he knows how to make up his mind.

Apiece Apart

Apiece Apart

A broken-down old Mercedes. A day trip to Marfa. Twelve hours spent stranded in West Texas. Thus, Apiece Apart was born. The line blossomed from conversation in the backseat of the stalled car as longtime friends Starr Hout and Laura Cramer observed the arid beauty of the landscape before them.
