This week, we’re drawing inspiration from a few great design minds, a delicious meal for mini-foodies, and all of the pretty shapes and colors.
Margaux was super excited this week to see two of her favorite design world icons, both of whom she has been lucky enough to work with, together in an interview about her favorite topic, The Design Effect.
Teach ’em while they’re young! Second-graders get a taste of big flavors in small portions, cooked by none other than Daniel Boulud. A compilation of their reviews lives in this online video, which Michelle got a huge kick out of.
Lisa’s further lamenting the loss of an old favorite, Pastis, with the news that new tenant has been named for its former space. Restoration hardware will soon have a mega-space down on 9th avenue to match its mega-catalogs.
Meghan’s found a Lisa an outlet for her anger- she thinks Karl Lagerfeld’s boxing bag for Louis Vuitton is a total knockout. Too bad the $175,000 price tag is too much of a heavy weight for her to carry.
Emily was intrigued by these abstract movie posters, stripped down to their core elements. It’s an exercise in how great design is often about the simplicity of shapes and colors. How many can you recognize?
Margaret is having one of those “i wish i was there” moments. This North Face pop-up showroom’s disappearing floor forces shoppers to show their athletic skills!
