Simple modern design prefab home

Looking Inward

For Paul and Shoko Shozi, a pair of retiring Angelenos, the goal was to shut out the neighborhood but bring in the sunny skies. Their new prefab home, the Tatami House, designed by Swiss architect Roger Kurath of Design*21, makes a central courtyard the physical, and maybe even the spiritual, center of the home. On a fine Marina del Rey morning, Paul shows us around.

A Visit to HAY Copenhagen

I just returned to the office from a trip to Copenhagen spent reporting a handful of stories for the magazine and scouting future projects. A highlight of the trip was my visit to HAY, a fantastic store dedicated to contemporary Danish design that's set in a historic building overlooking Strøget, the city's main pedestrian thoroughfare. I spent more than an hour in the store in a kind of happy design daze, gawping over the lovely sofas, chairs, rugs, tables, and miscellaneous gifts and gadgets. Here are some photos from my visit. I'll share some of my other favorite Copenhagen discoveries online over the next couple weeks.

Dwell Talks with Rich Brilliant Willing

On Thursday, November 10th, I'll be sitting down for a chat with Alexander T. Williams, one of the forces behind the exciting industrial design firm Rich Brilliant Willing. Williams is in town not only to discuss his wares, but also for a kind of unofficial RBW debut party at the design showroom Propellor at 555 Hayes St. in San Francisco. Join us starting at 7:00 PM for the event One by Three: Rich Brilliant Willing designer Alexander Williams talks with Dwell magazine Deputy Editor Aaron Britt. I'll ask Williams about his team's approach to design, about incporprating readymade parts into their unique products, and about what's coming down the pike for the talented trio. Best of all, Propellor will stake you to a 15% reduction on any RBW goods, and you stand an excellent chance of scoring a beer. I hope to see you there!
