Photo Op.

Yossi Milo Gallery here in New York recently opened an exhibition of photographs by Ezra Stoller (American, 1915–2004). Stoller’s gelatin silver prints include images of architectural interiors and iconic landmarks. Based on his background in architecture and industrial design, Stoller used a large-format camera to photograph monumental 20th century buildings, including the Guggenheim Museum, the TWA terminal at Idlewild Airport (now John F. Kennedy International Airport), the Seagram Building, the Salk Institute, Yale Art and Architecture Building and Fallingwater. In addition to well-known photographs of these locations, the exhibition will include lesser-known photographs of small homes and guest houses which provide a fresh look at the masterful eye that established Stoller as the preeminent photographer of modern architecture.

If you have a chance you should really stop by to see this incredible work in person. The exhibition is up until February 12. In the meantime, to see more of what you can expect click here.

Petal To The Metal.

Based Upon is a London based studio of artists designing and hand-making large reliefs, sculptural furniture and applied decorative surfaces. The globally acclaimed works are made by hand in layers of metal, resins and lacquers and are usually inspired by nature. Co-founder Ian Abell says, “Over the past 6 years we have worked across art, design and interiors and we have been difficult to categorise. We have introduced Four Labels to make it easier for our customers and collectors to understand the range of things we do and to give each label some space, so that it can be developed independently.” The Four Labels are "based upon": Composed (large scale artworks or installations) Form (furniture and sculpture) Meaning (private commissions) and Surface (hand-made textural material surfaces). We've been intrigued with these folks for sometime and hope we have the opportunity to work with them in the near future. We'll keep you posted. In the meantime, you can learn more about their work here.

Looks Like Another Love tKO.

Happy New Year! We hope everyone had a great holiday and that you're looking forward to 2011 as much as we are. We had a nice long, needed break and feel refreshed, energized and ready to kick-start the new year. 2010 was an incredible period full of exciting opportunities and 2011 is already shaping up to be equally exciting. We've got several projects lined up that we look forward to working on and sharing with you so we hope you'll stay tuned.

In the meantime, we wanted to share one of our favorite sources of inspiration, the work of architecture firm Studio KO. Founded by French architects Karl Fournier and Olivier Marty, this international firm has offices in both Paris and Marrakesh with projects throughout Europe and Africa including the Domaine Royal Palm. Their work is clean, earthy, organic and edgy and we find ourselves constantly referring back to their website for ideas and inspiration. We hope you enjoy their designs as much as we do and once again here's to 2011!
