Q&A with Paper Engineer Matt Shlian

Apophenia: the experience of seeing meaningful patterns or connections in random or meaningless data.

Material Focus: Copper

Warm, rosy-toned copper has fallen into favor with contemporary designers. Just as brass was au courant with designers last year, expect to see more of this material in furniture and products in the coming months (our roving editors have already spotted it in a few places during the 2013 Salone Internazionale del Mobile).

Remembering Paolo Soleri

We are sad to report that the visionary Italian architect, urban planner, and sustainability advocate died today at the age of 93.
