Portrait of Giulio Cappellini

8 Questions for Giulio Cappellini

A San Francisco-based lecture series, Design Assembly, kicked off with a talk from one of the dons of contemporary furniture, Giulio Cappellini. He spoke to a full crowd of local design fans at furniture gallery Arkitektura In Situ about his decades-long career helming the family business, often digressing into stories about student-days nights at the bar with Piero Lissoni or his apprenticeship with Gio Ponti. Dwell sat down with the man to ask about a signature Cappellini style, what the European furniture market looks like, and which designer might be next to join his enviable stable of talent.

Encuentro Guadalupe , Mexico

In recent years, Baja’s Valle de Guadalupe, only an hour and a half from the San Diego airport and 40 minutes from Ensenada, has emerged as Mexico’s wine country. In order to showcase the best that this region has to offer, The founders of Antiresorts™ decided to develop a property in the area that "combines amazing dry weather, rich new wines, incredible seafood and produce, impressive light, and human talent." And so, Encuentro Guadalupe came to be. The project, whose moniker suggests that it is a "wild reserve" and "native to its environment," is slated to open this July. It features two main components: Vinícola Encuentro, the winery and restaurant, and Encuentro Resguardo Silvestre, twenty high-end bungalows, which offer guests the chance to immerse themselves in the outdoors while still enjoying modern comforts.

Lakeside House in Texas

Architect J.C. Schmeil of Merzbau Design Collective recently completed this 4-bedroom, 4-bath house on Lake Austin in Texas, designed for a couple with three young children. "The design of the new residence resulted from a single, bold gesture: the bisection of the sloping site with a 14-foot high concrete retaining wall," says Schmeil. "The retaining wall appears as an interior finish on the ground floor, registering the passage of the day through a constant play of light and shadow."
