- As usual, prefab homes abound on the show floor at Dwell on Design.
- In preparation for Dwell on Design, we look forward to Michael Graves and the inspiration he will provide as our keynote speaker in June.
This exhibition will showcase Graves's style and will also focus on the roles of context, accessibility, and total design in his work.
An architectural mini-retrospective section will represent a range of the firm's projects, through models, drawings, and photographs, including the Fargo-Moorhead Cultural Bridge (1977), the Washington Monument Restoration (1998-2000), the Minneapolis Institute of Arts Target Wing (2006), and an extensive integrated resort in Sentosa, Singapore (2006 - present). A section devoted to product design, which has literally made Graves a household name, will include his iconic whistling bird teakettle for Alessi (1985), jewelry designs for Belvedere (1991), selections from his "top 25" product designs for Target (1999-present), and a soon-to-be-launched line of accessibility products for Drive Medical.
- Designers are jumping on board to offer modern takes on the classic piece of lighting, the candelabra.
