'Tis The Season-Day Six!

A couple of weeks ago we were lucky enough to attend Interior Design Magazine's Hall of Fame dinner and witness Vladimir Kagan pick up an award for his prolific and esteemed body of work. Kagan's clearly talented and incredibly charming, but at 82 he's also a tremendous inspiration. In fact, a few days later we attended Variations on Vladimir to help celebrate one of his newest designs, a limited edition fiberglass chair which he collaborated on with Ralph Pucci, owner of the Pucci showroom here in New York and host of this particular event. Ralph always knows how to throw a good party and this evening was no exception. In addition to showcasing Kagan's latest creation, he also introduced a new line of mannequins dressed in designs by Angelo Katsapis and exhibited a collection of shadowy photographs printed on cement by Michner Spindler. As if this weren't enough to stimulate the senses, also on hand was the String Orchestra of New York City which provided the most magnificent musical backdrop imaginable.

We've always had a tremendous amount of respect for Ralph Pucci and his ability to integrate such a diverse mix of talent and fortunately for all of us he has a new book entitled Ralph Pucci Show that highlights his remarkable enterprise (see images from the book below). We think this would make a terrific holiday gift for anyone out there who considers themselves a design enthusiast and we've made it even easier for you to get a copy of it by clicking here!

We had an opportunity to ask Ralph a few questions before last week's event and wanted to share with you his answers. Hope you enjoy them as much as we did!

DT: Is there anything in particular that inspires you?

RP:
Going to museums, galleries ,off beat fashion boutiques...listening to music...reading a great biography.....

DT: What are you most excited about right now in the world of design?

RP:
I’m most excited about the freedom to explore and merge all the arts in our presentations ..furniture, sculpture, photography , fashion, dance and music.....

DT: Any new products coming down the pipeline we need to know about?

RP: On
January 28th we are having a group show DISCOVERY featuring new work by Jim Zivic and Robert Bristow as well as modern minimalist quilts by Denyse Schmidt, photography on concrete by two young artists MICHNER AND SPINDLER and new paintings by Paul Mathieu. RE- DISCOVERY will feature work by the legendary 93 year old designer Jens Risom.

DT: What 3 people would you love to take to dinner?

RP:
I would've loved to have had or have dinner with Miles Davis, Cy Twombly and Keith Richards.

DT: If you could travel anywhere in the world where would you want to go or what would like to see?

RP:
I would love to go to Easter Island off Peru to see the giant stone sculptures or go see Brancusi’s Endless Column in Targu Jiu Romania
