Sofia Design Week 2013: The Balkan Date

The recent fifth edition of Sofia Design Week in Bulgaria's capital city marked a milestone for this international festival devoted to design and visual culture from Eastern Europe and beyond. The theme for 2013 was 'The Balkan Date'—a fitting topic for a region brimming with innovative design ideas as well as cultural expressions that are innately complex. Sofia Design Week's curatorial team felt that is was vital for this year's program to encourage creative exchange between Balkan countries, as well as facilitate a more tangible global presence for regional contemporary design. "When speaking of design on the Balkans, the usual reaction to the topic ranges from embarrassment to bewilderment to a smile. Until recently we were surprised at the growing interest of large-scale design platforms into the region. With its fifth edition, Sofia Design Week counteracts the skepticism and scant availability of information by putting you live in contact with the new wave of Balkan designers. Here and now, Bulgarians, Romanians, Turks, Greeks, Serbs, Kosovars, Slovenians, Albanians, Montenegrins, Croatians, Macedonians, Bosnians and Herzegovians are creating a surprisingly interesting, different and potentially characteristic design.

Mid-Century Furniture-Filled Living Room in San Rafael

"We can move out west if you can find a modern house that the furniture can go into," recollects homeowner Mark Neely after spending years collecting furniture for his apartments in Chicago and New York and taking the recent plunge settling into sunny San Rafael, California. Neely and partner Paul Kefalides' living room in their Joseph Eichler home in the Lucas Valley neighborhood from our June 'Furniture' issue is chock-full of the pair's impressive vintage finds, such as a Hans Wegner wooden Sawback chair, fur throw (albeit in need of dire repair), George Nelson's famous Ball Clock, Raymond Loewy's glossy DF-2000 cabinet, twin white floor lamps by Grta Von Nessen, and a suitably-packed cluster of Brian Willshire wooden sculptures, one of Neely’s many collections. Click here to view more of the couple's collections in their 500-plus home.
