Hit or Diss?

March 8, 2007

Look at this image carefully. Found this today in the NYTimes and had to share. Designers for Karastan used vinyl storage bags filled with recycled materials as seating at the recent Dining By Design event in New York. Is this idea a hit or a diss?

Would you try this at home? What would you you fill yours with?

Dioscuri – Teman + Teran Evans!

February 26, 2007

Do you recall the design duo from HGTV’s Design Star, twinsies Teman and Teran Evans? They were guests at Dining By Design, there to enjoy the show along with everyone else. In case you wondered what became of these two, well good news! They’ve launched their own high end accessories design studio, Dioscuri, but not for interiors… Jewelry for ladies and gents. You can learn more about Dioscuri online, and you can find their accessories at Nordstrom and at a whole slew of retailers right here. Best of luck, you handsome devils!

Dining By Design: SICIS The Art Factory

February 26, 2007

This Dining By Design table was sponsored by SICIS The Art Factory, the mosaic masters we see gracing the pages of interior design mags on a regular basis. The space was designed by Massimiliano Raggi. The entire room, down to the guests, was designed using mosaic tiles, with some exceptions being on the tabletop, of course. Amazing. Whether you love or hate mosiacs, you have to at least appreciate the sheer skill and patience involved in a project of this scope – brilliant!

Dining By Design: Candy Productions

February 26, 2007

This one was sponsored and designed by Candy Productions at Dining By Design. The photo says it all, sheer silliness and drag queens galore. Definitely the most fun space, but was it well designed? I guess when drag queens dance on tables, that’s points enough, right? It’s good to see design in a less serious format sometimes though. Plus, I just love this image. It’s one to enlarge and frame for sure. Great lighting, perspective, and the best part, that “Ta-Dah!” expression… Priceless!

Dining By Design: Alessi

February 26, 2007

Sponsored by the New York Times, this space was designed by Alessi for Dining By Design. Very cool, minimal, great chairs, love the writing on the wall – great play on words, “Aless is More”. Are those Frank Gehry cloud lights I see?
