After visiting The Saguaro in Palm Springs during Modernism Week, we found ourselves hooked on the Stamberg Aferiat + Associates renovated hotel and wanted to see more from the duo behind it. Lucky for us, they recently released an update on their 1997 monograph and they’ve shared some images with us. The book features 21 projects from the body of work by Peter Stamberg and Paul Aferiat over the last three decades.
While The Saguaro shows their mastery of color, a look through the book reveals the firm also has a strong command of a neutral palette. Dwell and The Saguaro celebrated the book’s release at The Saguaro during Modernism Week. Editor in Chief Amanda Dameron introduced Stamberg and Aferiat, who spoke about some of the projects spanning their career. Click through for images of the event and a peek at some of the projects featured in the book.
It's all part of Dwell on Design + designjunction's three-day event, featuring a program of talks chock-full of leading figures in design, architecture, urbanism, and beyond—coming up May 13-15 at ArtBeam in New York.
Johannesburg-based design studio Counterspace was founded in 2014 by young architecture graduates Sumayya Vally, Sarah de Villiers, and Amina Kaskar. Their projects are collaborative, research-led investigations into possible futures and ideas of otherness in Johannesburg.
