esign—its power is real. Design inspires us, evokes emotion and invites innovation. It surrounds us. It improves the way we live, work and interact. Our homes, not surprisingly, are the center of our design-driven lives—an expression of ourselves, our values, our lifestyle and projections of self. For our Spring Issue, we are inspired by all things design, from awe-inspiring homes to head-turning furniture to inventive designers and artists. It is my pleasure to welcome you to The Design Issue. Our journey begins in Milan, where each April the design world flocks to Salone del Mobile to present furniture, products and art on a global stage, attracting hundreds of thousands of design disciples. We present our top picks and brightest standouts from last month’s installment in Milan Mania (p.30). In San Francisco, we catch up with renowned Taylor Lombardo Architects, whose award-winning architecture arises from an innate sense of design, genuine humility and enthusiasm for delivering on their clients’ dreams (Creator, p.38). We also hit Manhattan to profile global artist Javier Martin, whose signature portraiture and provocative subjects graced his latest solo exhibition Blindness – The Appropriation of Beauty, curated by Robert C. Morgan (Art, p.44), and sit down with Brooklyn-based designer Megan Grehl, to discover how she uses design to seduce the mind, body and spirit (Spaces, p.50). Back home, we’ve curated a selection of the most architecturally significant properties currently on the market in the San Francisco Bay Area, from sleek contemporary residences to chic urban lofts to classic stately mansions (Feature, p.54). We also take you inside the 41st annual installment of the San Francisco Decorator Showcase for a captivating visual feast of creativity and raw talent (Design Spotlight, p.68). You’ll also find a gallery of the finest properties currently for sale in the Sotheby’s International Realty network, including a private island in Pumpkin Key, Florida, a vineyard estate in Idaho and a heritage oasis on Fallen Leaf Lake (Property Finder, p.73).

Barovier & Toso

By continuing its path of experimenting with the use of glass, Barovier and Toso curates vividly creative collections inspired by the past. They’ve recouped and developed several models by Ercole Barovier from the 1930s with the Rostrato technique, a complex type of craftsmanship he invented in 1938, in which a series of points are extruded from the glass to give it a “prehistoric” appearance.

Angelo Cappellini Founded by Enrico Cappellini, Angelo Cappellini is known for years of experience creating classic furniture and reproductions of authentic European styles such as Louis XV, Louis XVI, Regency, Empire and Biedermeier. Since 1886, the high quality of products is maintained by careful choice of materials and expert attention to details, carvings and decorations.

MILAN MANIA Giorgio Collection Designed by Giorgio Soressi, with whom the Giorgio Collection enjoys a long-established partnership, the Infinity collection showcases the much prized and sought-after Makoré mahogany wood in dark grey, with the tropical African wood lending the furniture a unique sense of depth. Shiny, brushed polyester is for the first time paired with light gold chrome and rare, top-ofthe-range green Bolivia marble, making for a contemporary take on Art Déco.

Caesarstone In 2018, Caesarstone collaborated with Snarkitecture to explore the core theme of the kitchen island with the project Altered States. Snarkitecture looked at water as the most important “ingredient” in the kitchen, drawing inspiration from its changing states in nature (glacier, river, geyser) and in the kitchen (ice, water, steam). At the center of the space, a large circular kitchen island, made of Caesarstone White Attica, explores the changing states of water and Caesarstone surfaces are used in layers, referencing natural topography.

SEEKING BLINDNESS When Javier Martin won Spain’s national award, Caja Madrid, at the ripe age of nine, it was the beginning of a burgeoning career. His signature portraiture and provocative subjects have been exhibited around the world, from Miami to Marbella to Shanghai. We catch up with the artist in Manhattan for his latest solo exhibition of Blindness - The Appropriation of Beauty, curated by Robert C. Morgan. 45


Blindness Light Porcelain Dream, 2017


avier Martin (Spain, 1985) is a multidisciplinary artist who bases his creative exploration on the careful observation of his surroundings, detecting semiotic relationships that might otherwise pass by unnoticed to a viewer. With this approach, the artist constructs situations that invite reflection on impending matters in today’s world. Raised in Spain, Martin began painting in oil colors at the tender age of seven and had his first exhibition at the age of eight; however, he never allowed himself to be influenced by formal artistic training. Instead, he relied on his experiences, which allowed him to explore the possibilities of various materials and tools that he incorporates in his work today. Traveling, living and working in Europe, South Korea, Hong Kong and the United States honed his observation skills, allowing him to learn from people and daily situations far removed from his background. During the summer of 2012, Martin participated in his first exhibition in Asia in Shanghai’s M50 Art District. By 2014 he was officially represented by Matthew Liu Fine Arts Gallery in Shanghai.


Blindness Light Sueno Lucido, 2018

In addition to his international exhibitions around the world, he shares his knowledge and personal experience regarding the realm of ar t culture through speaking engagements. In 2015 he conversed with a group of students during a conference at Alboran College in Marbella, Spain, discussing the impact that art had on his life. 2017 opened with Martin presenting Lies and Light, a performance piece, at the Museum of Contemporary Art Jacksonville, followed by a discussion about the importance of breaking down the lights that veer us away from the path of truth. Most recently, he was a panelist in the New Ways of Seeing Conference, presented by the Art World Forum at the Liang Yi Museum, Hong Kong. For over a decade, Martin has been developing one of his most iconic collections, Blindness. Appropriating the language of adver tising, he deconstructs the perceived perfection to create contrast, exploring the warped concepts of beauty and value. The eyes, classically associated with the reflection of human emotions, are always concealed, whether behind a vibrant stroke of paint or a glowing neon light. With painting and collage, he reproduces images of

seemingly perfect models, symbols of a standard of beauty and lifestyle that most people long to enjoy. Inspired by the juxtaposition between the grit of city surroundings and the glossy ads that line them, Martin deconstructs this perceived perfection to create a contrast between technology, collage and painting. In the spring of 2016, Martin presented Lies and Light at his solo show during Art Basel Hong Kong week. This performance also represented the latest evolution of the artist’s Blindness concept. In this case, the artist manifests himself as the protagonist, literally shat tering society’s barriers to convey the struggle against conformity as well as the fight for truth and freedom. This raw and rebellious performance finds Martin completely vulnerable in an intense spiritual journey to overcome his past. Mass media, consumption and the systems created by society occupy space with vapid dis­tractions, dimming the pure light burning inside each of us which fuels our passions and lives. The neon in the Blindness Light collection references the bright, artificial lights of consumer culture built to distract

Blindness Light Copyright Waste, 2017


Blindness Alma A Room Without Walls, 2017

from what is truly meaningful. The goal is not the light but discovering what is behind the light–what lives in each of us. In today’s society, perception is everything. Martin’s work gives form to the inarticulate feelings of self-worth. Known for his thought-provoking boldness, he creates art that rattles nerves, stirs the senses and invites the viewer to not only question societal views of worth, but their perspectives as well. Blindness Alma - A Room Without Walls, is an installation that encapsulates Javier Martin’s Blindness concept into a transcendental physical space, composed of mirrors and light that is simultaneously ethereal and unsettling. This room breaks through architectural barriers. As the concepts of both light and infinity in their purest forms are nearly impossible to comprehend, these mirrored walls create a limited depiction of infinity.

Blindness Light Concave Convex, 2017


With his latest ex tension of his Blindness concept, he invites the viewer to step into a room where he

has conceptually removed the walls, replacing them with unlimited light and space. This piece tests the concept of perception and inspires self-reflection by eliminating the barriers society imposes, filling our minds with banal and insignificant thoughts, keeping us trapped and preventing us from realizing the potential that exists beyond. The transcendental problem of light is that it is merely a reflection. So the ultimate goal for the viewer is not to focus on the glowing neon light, but search within for something more profound beyond those lights. To look inside and outside of oneself to question societal views of self-worth as well as one’s own perspectives. G

From Paris to Shanghai to New York, Megan Grehl’s interior architectures are grounded in sculptural gestures, unexpected proportions and layered textures that seduce the mind, body and spirit.


our years ago, Megan Grehl was ready to break away from working under established interior design firms and decided to explore and embrace her own style by starting her own practice. Since the eponymous company’s founding in 2014, Megan Grehl has completed projects all over the world. Today, Megan Grehl is an international design collective specializing both in architectural interior and product design, with experience ranging from boutique commercial spaces to bespoke residences with


completed projects in Shanghai, New York, Los Angeles, Paris and San Francisco. Grehl’s husband, Côme Ménage, has his own architectural practice READ (Re Architecture Design), and the couple has collaborated on several projects together. Despite the challenges, the couple feels their strong bond encourages their best work. “We’re aware of each other’s triumphs and struggles. If we have to stay at the office and work late, we sympathize with each other. Design is all about teamwork, and

who better to have on your team than your partner?” Every designer gets their inspiration from somewhere, and Megan reveals she is inspired by 1920-1970s sculpture, architecture and film. "Growing up in China, only old films and pre-communist art were available, so I got an original version of the classics. My father worked in production of industrial materials and my mother was a watercolor artist—they influenced the way I perceive color and materials.” Megan Grehl’s projects are designed through a holistic approach, with both

Their practice is grounded in sculptural gestures, unexpected proportions and layered textures.

family home that perfectly marries the old with the new, expected with the unexpected. “We like to challenge what people normally see as ‘acceptable’ objects within a home. Why not use a vintage surgical light as your kitchen centerpiece? The allure is all about the unexpected,” Grehl notes.

Megan and Côme echoed these notions in their home, a brownstone in BedfordStuyvesant. With the recent birth of their son, the couple needed to redesign their home to be baby friendly, while still honoring the brownstone’s original ornate architecture, as well as their love for modern design. The layered result of these dichotomies is a welcoming

More recently, Grehl and Ménage completed a 2,400 square foot penthouse renovation in New York’s Union Square, offering an incredible blank canvas for a vernal milestone—a young couple’s first shared home. For the Stanford graduates with an international background and roots in the Bay Area, Grehl created an environment full of

cultural sophistication, inspired by their divergent tastes in aesthetics and style and infused with bold furniture accents. Curated contemporary artwork embodies the couple’s mutual love for art, design and technology. Grehl turned the living room and dining area, endowed with expansive views of lower Manhattan and abundant natural light, into a bright and airy space perfect for the couple’s work and social gatherings. The juxtaposition of plush upholstery and curved silhouettes against the concrete jungle just outside the walls brings a dynamic, yet welcoming, balance to the home.

SPACES For this year’s Salone del Mobile in Milan, Megan Grehl was invited by Dutch design firm Moooi to envision a residential space around their products, “Moooi Through the Eyes of Megan Grehl.” Grehl collaborated closely with Marcel Wanders and the Moooi team to create an exemplary, first-of-itskind presentation. The goal: to evoke qualities of comfort and familiarity, while maintaining the sophisticated and whimsical nature for which Moooi is known and loved. To create a sense of enclosure and intimacy, Grehl developed an isolated volume that is separate, to truly evoke a multi-dimensional residence. The layout consists of a series of six rooms—a dining room, a boudoir, a bedroom, an indoor and outdoor living space and an attic. A system of architectural portals directs the gaze through focused and structured vignettes, inspiring a sense of discovery and intrigue for what resides in the next room. Conjugating multiple layers of atmosphere, tactility and textures invokes the complexity of “home.” Grehl’s team also designed a series of custom rugs for each room. The graphic motif for the rug designs was inspired by Brutalist abstract forms, including those of Basque sculptor Eduardo Chillida. Each rendition is composed of multiple graphic layers that create the illusion of depth and dimension, transforming the rug into a three-dimensional accessory.

Perch Light, NR2 pendants, Carbon chairs, Container Table, Nest Sofas in custom black frame and white upholstered cushions all by Moooi. Rug collection designed by Megan Grehl. Photo: Zack DeZon.

Following such a prolific creative chapter, what’s next for Megan Grehl? The team is expanding to the West Coast and into hospitality with a recently completed townhouse in San Francisco’s Inner Sunset, a 5,000 square foot villa in Los Angeles and a wine bar for a Parisian hotel group in New York City. Grehl notes that design is not limited by location, but that its creation should always question its context and of course, “seduce the mind, body and spirit.” G

DESIGN DRIVEN 247 Fourth St. #209 Oakland The Jack London Waterfront/Oakland Warehouse District, with its restaurants, shopping, open air markets, AMTRAK train station, ferry service to San Francisco and close proximity to BART is a commuter’s dream. Live-Work Loft #209 is located in the former Western States Grocery Building, designed and constructed by well-known architects Couchot, Rosenwald and Roeth (Oakland Tribune Building) in 1926. The building retains its original “warehouse feel,” while hosting amenities such as the popular Chop Bar restaurant on its street level. When the current owners saw the raw space of #209 and the large open floor plan of the square footage (at 1,480 per public records) they approached it with “SoHo Living” in mind. With soaring 13 ft. ceilings of exposed cement imprinted with the original redwood beams used for the pour and mushroom column supports, they knew that their midcentury/art gallery aesthetic would be well represented. The loft underwent remodeling, including transforming the kitchen into an open plan entertainer’s dream and expanding and reimagining the bathroom into a spa-like oasis.

DESIGN DRIVEN 1960 San Antonio Ave. Berkeley This mansion was built by John Hopkins Spring, an entrepreneur who developed much of North Berkeley and Albany, and was instrumental in the building of Berkeley’s Claremont Hotel. In 1912, Spring commissioned John Hudson Thomas to design a grand residence to promote his development of the Thousand Oaks area. Thomas is noted for his deliberate over-scaling, and the Spring mansion is built on a grand Roman scale. The mansion features many of Thomas’ signature elements: bays, multishaped windows, and the eclectic and romantic mixture of visual influences. The current owner of the historic home commissioned a tasteful update of several elements of the 12,000 sq. ft. main house that successfully demonstrates how the majestic BeauxArts Mansion can be brought back to glorious life. Listing agent Herman Chan enlisted HGTV host and Berkeley native celebrity designer Cora Sue Anthony to revamp the landmark estate. The Mansion’s exterior was repaired and given a coat of gleaming white paint. The result returns the exterior close to the original state and it is easy to see why, in the days before the hillside was forested, the mansion resembled a glittering jewel visible from San Francisco across the bay. $7,500,000 Herman Chan Golden Gate Sotheby’s International Realty CalBRE# 01988025 I 415.787.3450

Ten Thousand Dreams

Serene and simple best describes Mead Quin’s design of the living room. Every selection is carefully considered—made for cohesion and beauty as well as purpose and function. It is also a space for collecting and displaying what matters most. Every piece of art is thoughtfully curated and is full of meaning.

Rest reigns supreme in this master suite designed by Jeff Schlarb. The room, Ten Thousand Dreams, draws its name and inspiration from the firm’s deep care for its clients’ health and happiness. “We work hard to make homes deliver an amplification of already amazing lives. During our concept phase, we uncover passion and ambitions, desire and dreams,” says Schlarb. The result: a retreat in the home—a space for romance, abundance and comfort. A place to allow dreams to flourish. I 510.858.7338 I 415.885.7966

The Lady Cave

Lemondrop Lullaby

Tapping into his inner child for inspiration, Jon de la Cruz recalls his favorite pillowed fortresses and bed linen tents where he could hide and read, listen to his headphones and daydream. His modern screening room recreates a grownup version of that kind of daily escape, but fashioned with richly embroidered linen tented walls, plush Moroccan rugs, deep tufted velvet sofas and ottomans luxe enough to capture the attention of any wanderlust.

Dina Bandman’s sophisticated take on a baby’s nursery showcases gender neutral yellow and mint as a substitute for traditional pink or blue. Inspired by the uplifting essence of Amalfi Coast lemon trees, the room exudes cheer with its hand-painted and sequin-embellished de Gournay wallpaper, custom made for the lullaby inducing nursery.

A favorite feature is the crystal clear safe for displaying valuables and looking fabulous.

Family Room Called Good Vibes! Meditations on Family Part II, designer Ian Stallings' space was inspired by film—specifically the screwball romantic comedies of the 1930s. He uses furniture from Coup D’etat to create a living area that is modern and comfortable as a space to lounge about. Brightness and charm reign supreme. Stallings: “If this room were a movie, it would be rated G, but this is interior design, so I thought it should be rated IS, for Ian Stallings.” I 415.621.5660
