Richard Nonas – Ridge

01. Untitled (from the Cherrytree Split Series), 2011.
02. Untitled, 1985.

Words

I spent yesterday afternoon wandering up and down the Bowery and around the Lower East Side of Manhattan looking in and out of lighting stores. Along the way I walked past the James Fuentes galley, and through the window was immediately drawn to the show on display within. Richard Nonas was born in Brooklyn in 1936 and originally worked with Native Americans in the Sonoran Desert as an Anthropologist. His sculptural work, in both metal and wood, has long been admired for it's simplicity and familiarity and his new show – entitled Ridge – is his first in New York City in five years.

"Beginnings — is glad to present a solo show by the English designer, professor and artist, Peter Nencini. His body of graphic work imparts an easy understanding and synthesis of the bright moments in visual history, from Bauhaus posters to ancient Asian fabric patterns. Every project he undertakes is intentional; his natural gift for form and perception has been honed through thoughtful practice, and the show he has designed for the gallery is no exception."

Bruno Mathsson Coat Stand

01. Bent birch wood.
02. Hemp rope.

Words

There are things out there that you need, and there are things out there that you want; some of them are reasonable, others are not. This 1970s coat stand by the Swedish designer Bruno Mathsson, isn't something I need, and it's hardly a reasonable purchase (it's also not one I can actually make), but that does not make it any less desirable, nor any more rational a desire.

Enzo Mari Sedia 1 Chair

01-04. "Design is always education."

Words

While brutally cold yesterday, New York still offers plenty of interesting things to take your mind off the numbness of your fingers, and the chill in your bones. Popping into Matter for a some respite in the afternoon I was reminded once again of my admiration for Enzo Mari's Sedia 1 Chair. Sold as a kit containing the pinewood boards, nails and instructions needed to assemble the chair, it is produced by Artek and was originally part of Mari's Autoprogettazione project from 1974.

After Paul Thomas Anderson's The Master

—01. Paul Thomas Anderson.

Words

While this might not be considered typical blogging fare, any interview with Paul Thomas Anderson is usually too good not to recommend reading. The New York Times recently spent some time with the director during an unusual and lesser seen stage of his latest film's production: the time spent after the release; winding down and cleaning up.
