Lake Iosco House in New Jersey

New Zealand transplant Debbie Gibbs and her young sun retreat from their New York city life to their custom prefab home in Lake Iosco, New Jersey. After seeing the Dwell Home competition designed by Joseph Tanney and Robert Luntz of Resolution: 4 Architecture, Gibbs contacted the pair to design a home where the line between indoors and out would blur. Working from a list of preferred materials and components that the architects could source easily, the result was a flowing, expansive breath of space. “The house’s narrow footprint works for us in terms of maximum exposure to the lake,” says Gibbs (shown here with son Blake and dog Max on the shore of Lake Iosco). "The old house was like a cave, and I wanted this house to be the opposite: a pavilion where you didn’t feel enclosed at all." Check out more of this lakeside prefab here.

TOTEMISM: Memphis Meets Africa at Design Indaba Expo

Kinship in design is often viewed as simply a matter of showing relations, both formally and historically, between objects that share color, pattern, and local craft strategies. Totemism, however, often takes a "system of belief" one step further by introducing supernatural connections and avant-garde expressions that blend the folkloric and iconic in stirring ways. In this spirit, we reached out to Li Edelkoort, world-renowned trend forecaster, to describe some of the layered creations in her artfully curated exhibit,'TOTEMISM: Memphis meets Africa' at this past weekend's Design Indaba Expo. The Memphis movement burst onto the scene in 1981 when its designers made waves at the Milan Furniture Fair with irreverently bold, Pop-style designs that challenged Modernist notions of good taste and functionality. Created as a language that challenged the aesthetic of clean lines, the market appeal of the understated, and the usefulness of design coherence, Memphis rippled out to ceramics, glassware, furniture, interior design, and urban architecture, specifically building facades. The movement embraced the unexpected in design as well as the ubiquitous in life.
