MUJI Makes a Move

MUJI, Japan’s legendary “brand-less brand,” is expanding its West Coast empire. With ultra-basic furniture, clothing, electronics, and more headed for San Jose, California in April, we decided to stop by the company’s flagship store in Tokyo to see the latest in self-effacing design. MUJI lovers be forewarned: the full MUJI experience can still be had only in Japan!

Palm Springs Modernism Week: The Cocktail Hour with Dwell

Mid-century modernism is a way of life in Palm Springs, California, and the community continually celebrates the look, feel, and style of the era. So when the Paul Kaplan Group and Dwell invited Modernism Week attendees to celebrate The Cocktail Hour last night, a crowd clad in mid-century garb showed up at The Fontenell. Completely restored to its mid-century glory, the estate was a family vacation home for the Max Factor family in the 1950s. Its courtyard and pool provide the perfect setting for a party. Cocktail in hand, party goers were treated to a fashion show hosted by Bill Miller of Palm Spring's vintage clothing destination Dejà Vu Vintage Finery. Models took to the stage dressed in cocktail attire of the '50s and elicited audible cries of dress envy. After the show, conversations centered on Modernism Week festivities: lectures attended, the upcoming 'it' parties, and which house tours are not to be missed.

Aesop San Francisco store

San Francisco's New Aesop Shop

We recently got the chance to pop into the new Aesop shop in San Francisco, a charming little boutique that opened December 20th. Located on the shopper's paradise of Fillmore Street in Pacific Heights, the cork-and-pine shop cuts an understated figure when compared to flashy retail outlets like Jonathan Adler or Marc Jacobs down the block. That's par for the course with Aesop, a brand of Melbourne-based cosmetics and body products. Over the last decade, the company has built up a clutch of fantastic retail spaces done by an enviable array of architects. An Aesop interior tends to emphasize one material—corrugated cardboard, pine boxes, a giant sink—making it, not the rows of creams and balms, the star. In San Francisco, the first Aesop shop on the West Coast, the star is a welter of pine boxes jutting out from one wall designed by NADAAA, a Boston firm that also did an Aesop store in Manhattan. About this time last year we had a long chat with Aesop founder Dennis Paphitis about what drives the design culture at his company, how he thinks about interior space, and what precisely he means by "exaggerated minimalism."

Holiday Gift Picks from Mociun

Caitlin Mociun has been a Brooklyn design fixture since graduating from RISD with a BFA in textile design. Her Bauhaus-inspired clothing collections put her on the map, but she's now focusing on modern jewelry design, as well as curating and selling other craft-based work from her storefront in Williamsburg. We spoke with Caitlin to get her picks for a holiday gifting, as well as some insight on why her designs are hard to knock off (a perennial issue we've covered here at Dwell).
