designLAb is pleased to announce an exhibition featuring work by Simryn Gill. Following Gill’s inclusion in dOCUMENTA (13) and her solo exhibition representing Australia at the 55th Venice Biennale in 2013, designLAb presents Gill’s monumental work My Own Private Angkor (2007-2009) – a series of ninety black and white silver gelatin prints – which will be installed in its entirety. This will be the first time the work has been exhibited in Los Angeles following her New York exhibition at Tracy Williams, Ltd. and its inclusion in the Istanbul Biennial in 2011. The exhibition will be on view from March 18 through May 1, 2014. Simryn Gill’s My Own Private Angkor examines an abandoned Tudorstyle housing development from the 1980’s in a small town in Malaysia. Gill has photographed this site in earlier works, Standing Still and Looking for Marcel, and returns again to this subject in this series with a focus on the buildings’ interior spaces shot in black and white film. My Own Private Angkor captures the effects of changing fortunes and time’s passage on this place, which has been subject to encroachment of flora and fauna, and the ransacking of scrap metal. The photographs

record the unsettling beauty of loss and decay; they also record a modern formalism, evident in the geometric shapes of window panes left behind by thieves who removed the framing, in the repetitiveness of the interiors, and in the serial nature of the work itself. Gill’s My Own Private Angkor was featerued in Afterall, Summer, 2013 by Anders Kreuger. Simryn Gill (b. 1959) was born in Singapore and presently lives in Sydney, Australia and Port Dickson, Malaysia. Her work is represented by Tracy Williams Ltd.

PDC SPOTLIGHT Mario Buatta’s Fifty Years of American Interior Decoration Buatta chronicles his well-designed life. He introduces himself as a boy who used to rearrange furniture in his family’s English Tudor-style home on Staten Island, NY, and takes us through his journey of becoming and remaining arguably one of the most respected members of the design community today. He shares anecdotes about his personal and professional life; insights into his creative process; the evolution of his signature English Country House style; never-beforeseen photographs from his own archive; and images of his instantly recognizable design work, many of which have been featured in the pages of Architectural Digest and other respected shelter publications. He also gives readers a peek inside his extraordinary projects, including Blair House, the Presidential guest quarters in Washington, D.C., the homes of some of his high-profile clients—Barbara Walters and Mariah Carey, to name a few—and a multitude of other New York pied-à-terres.

When I was a little boy, my mother said to me, “Piccolo Mario, what do you want to be when you grow up?” I shrugged, “I don’t know—I don’t want to play the violin like Poppa.” “Maybe you should be an actor because you like to be on the stage.” My brother said, “Well, maybe you should be a psychiatrist because you’re so crazy.” My father said, “Perhaps you should be a lawyer because you have such a big mouth.” So I combined all three in order to become an interior decorator—an actor to convince my clients that I like their existing furniture, a psychiatrist to figure out what they like and don’t like, and a lawyer to collect the bills! —Mario Buatta

Prince of Chintz Mario Buatta is at it again—this time with his very first monograph. Written by Buatta with Emily Evans Eerdmans, Fifty Years of American Interior Decoration is part autobiography, part design book, and part comedy—the latter being immediately apparent from the first paragraph of chapter one (see excerpt at left). Published by Rizzoli and expected to hit bookshelves and accessorize low tables beginning this fall, the book celebrates the internationally acclaimed designer’s impressive career, which dates back to the 1950s when he worked as an assistant in the decorating department at B. Altman & Co.

“He is a legend. And for good reason,” Architectural Digest Editor Emeritus Paige Rense writes of Buatta in her foreward to the book. “For fifty-some years he has designed extraordinary, traditional interiors combining fine design with shelter, comfort, and joy. His color palette cheers, delights, and offers emotional sustenance. It seems impossible to imagine being depressed in a Mario Buatta interior.” “Personally, he also cheers and delights,” she continues. “He is a practical joker. (Look out for gold-plated creepy-crawlies.)” Rense perfectly captures Buatta here— the man, the icon, and the jokester.

The 2014 Stars of Design and Stars on the Rise 2014 Awards Ceremony Wednesday, March 19. By invitation only. Please join Charles S. Cohen, President/Owner of Pacific Design Center to celebrate the 2014 Stars of Design and Stars on the Rise 2014 Awards.

Scarpa was the Artistic Director of VENINI from 1932-1947 and was intimately involved with production techniques and spent many hours with the master blowers to develop new surface textures, new techniques and colorings. Through the exceptional craftsmanship of the master blowers, he designed and recognized hundreds of significant works in unique and groundbreaking styles.

Micucci

Throughout his 15-year period directorship, the experiments Scarpa undertook at VENINI radically redefined the possibilities of glassblowing. All the methods and techniques he developed remind us how motivated he was to research the detailing for interior design elements, just as he was for his breathtaking architectural projects. MICUCCI ARTE is honored to present 32 sculptural pieces designed by Scarpa and cordially invites you for a private viewing of the solo exhibition.
