Graphic Designer We Love: Aaron Eiland

Last week, we declared our love for TypeToy, an online reference library of all things vintage design and typography, but who's the mastermind behind it all? Why, Aaron Eiland, that's who. When not working his magic as Fossil's senior designer, Eiland designs, designs, and designs. Many a pattern, many a line, click through to see a few of his works.

A Magenta-Accented Sustainable Bathroom in Phoenix

With its glowing magenta ceiling, floor, and walls, the lavatory's shower looks more like a room meant for a Gaspar Noé film than a place to spruce up one's hygiene (the house it resides in is called Xeros). A small portrait painting replaces the usual bathroom suspect—the mirror—and sanded oriented strand board (OSB), a waste material typically used in framing, outfits the blocky, narrow quarter. See the rest of this sustainable steel mesh-clad live/work space in Phoenix, Arizona in our issue dedicated to green homes here.

Designer of the Week: Marc Krusin

Marc Krusin is a veteran of the Milan-based group Codice 31, which he founded along with five other designers in 1998. (Fun fact: That same year saw the first iteration of Milan's much vaunted Salone Satellite.) Krusin is now design director at Piero Lissoni, meaning he's partially responsible for all the low-slung Italian sofas and sleek sliding glass doors we so often admire—clients include Alessi, Kartell, Flos, Thonet, and Wella. He completes solo projects under the moniker Klay, which has specialized in "objects of natural materials influenced by world cultures" since 2004. We caught up with Marc before this year's Salone del Mobile in Milan, where he will be unveiling a storage system for Spanish company Punt Mobles, among others.

A Resin to Love

A long overdue solo show for designer, architect, and artist Gaetano Pesce opened last week at Fred Torres Collaborations in Chelsea, New York. Despite his work being shown in galleries and museums the world over and receiving numerous high-profile awards in architecture and design throughout his career, a solo New York exhibition has eclipsed him until now. It would be hard to contain Mr. Pesce to one label as his work often treads the line between piece of art and work of design. The show, titled L’Abbraccio (the Embrace), narrows his body of work down to define Gaetano Pesce, the artist.
