Favn chair, designed by Jaime Hayon for Fritz Hansen


avin is the Danish name for embrace. This piece is the result of a creative dialogue between Jaime Hayon and Fritz Hansen. “I wanted the sofa to be based on a shell. A shell being hard on the outside, soft and welcoming on the inside. I wanted to create a form that embraces you, something really organic - that’s why we named it FAVN”. “FAVN is an evolution of Fritz Hansen’s design language that brings together the qualities of Spanish and Danish design”. The new sofa is presented in ten unique Designer Selections; light grey, sage green, clear beige, taupe, chocolate, moutarde, red, violet, dark blue and black. It includes a mix of three fabrics to express the form of its three main components; the shell, seat and back and decorative cushions. The combination of texture and tone is appealing to the visual and emotional senses. S

on’t be fooled by the beautiful retro fashion images... The Factory Tradeshow is the first community-centered, virtual fashion tradeshow founded by Ronda Walker. “Let’s give the fashion tradeshow an entirely new look” says Ronda. Imagine a place where creativity never stopped or even slowed down. The Factory is a platform for instance where designers can share their visions with the world almost immediately after conception. Where like-minded individuals, internationally inspire others to express themselves. For designers the FACTORY online tradeshow, there are no more wasteful hours and high costs. No more late nights and exhausting mornings with little energy left for effective sales and marketing. No more long cab lines and walking for hours a day getting nowhere. No more horribly loud music and toxic smells lurking around every corner. You are now free to design and get to the business of creativity. “The time is here for the fashion industry to take part in the technological revolution that is happening all around us. Help revolutionize the business of fashion by bringing the fashion tradeshow into the digital space. It’s time to join the FACTORY.” says Ronda. The archaic business platforms of the past such as shopping fashion tradeshows, has grown old and tired. Traveling to tradeshows burns time, money and energy that would be better spent moving your own business forward. S May 2011 | 9 | S

Sugamo Shinkin Bank

By Emmanuelle Moureaux Architecture

May 2011 | 11 | S


apanese practice Emmanuelle Moureaux Architecture + Design has completed ‘Sugamo Shinkin Bank’, a credit union located in Shimura, Japan. The design, an offset volume of rainbow-like layers, is the third branch designed by moureaux, with the first two located in Tokiwadai and Niiza.

Stacked slabs in twelve saturated colors dominate the exterior facade and contrast the stark white panels that enclose the building. Looking to create a refreshing atmosphere with a palpable sense of nature, the colors gently transition until they disappear into the sky. Softly reflected onto the white surfaces, the hues create a warm and diffused exterior which provide a sense of ease and solitude. At night, the layers are faintly illuminated, varying in accordance to weather and the season. Upon entering the building, three elliptical skylights bathe the interior in a soft light. penetrating through each of the three levels, the clear, curving tubes carry light through them, introducing natural light into the depths of the structure while integrating interior and exterior environments. On the main floor where the bank machines and teller windows are located, simple motifs and brightly colored furniture act as a connection to the characteristics evident on the exterior of the structure.

ŠHerb Ritts Foundation Christy Turlington, Hollywood 1988

Herb Ritts CAMERA WORK Presents

ŠHerb Ritts Foundation, Male Nude with Tumbleweed, Paradise Cove 1986


ore than 50 photographs will give a comprehensive insight into the work of Herb Ritts, at the CAMERA WORK gallery, who passed away in 2002. All of the exhibited photographs were developed during the artist’s lifetime. In the 1980s and the 1990s, the autodidact worked together with nearly every superstar. Among the exhibited portraits one can find names such as Madonna, Mick Jagger, Dustin Hoffman, David Bowie, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jack Nicholson, and Cindy Crawford. Thanks to his unique vision, distinctive portraits as well as very aesthetic nude photographs came into existence. His great sensitivity and his stylistic confidence with regard to the usage of strict forms, creating a monumental sensuality, enabled Herb Ritts to create timeless icons and to influence a whole generation of photographers with his innovative picture language. Sand, sea, sky, and often baleful, dramatic shadows are the backgrounds against which Herb Ritts stages his perfect light sculptures. His pictures often originated in the surroundings of Los Angeles, where he grew up as a neighbor of actor Steve McQueen. With formal rigor and subtle eroticism, the »master of the lascivious pose« composed black and white pictures of distinctive elegance.

Within a very short time, Herb Ritts attained the legendary status of a fashion, celebrity, portrait and nude photographer. His, at first, private pictures of a young, still relatively unknown Richard Gere, bursting of strength while changing a tire helped establish the photographer’s career as icon photographer of the pop culture. After Gere had his international breakthrough with »Days of Heaven« in 1978, Vogue as well as Mademoiselle requested and published those pictures. The photographs were a sensation and were met with great enthusiasm due to their powerful aesthetic. This is said to have laid the foundation for his international career. Herb Ritts decidedly influenced the aesthetics of magazines such as Vogue, Vanity Fair, and Interview with his fashion productions of the 1980s and 1990s. His advertising campaigns for brands such as Calvin Klein, Armani, and Gap were instantaneously memorable. But music videos for artists such as Madonna, Michael Jackson, Janet Jackson, Shakira, and particularly Chris Isaak’s legendary video ”Wicked Games“, too, belong to his unprecedented work.

obert McGinnis was born in 1926 and grew up in rural Ohio. He began to show an interest in art at an early age and, after leaving school in 1943, studied at the Academy of Commercial Art in Cincinnati. His first paperback cover was done for the Dell Publishing Company in 1958: Al Fray’s “Built for Trouble” (Dell First Edition A167). (Although this was McGinnis’ first cover assignment, the first book published with a Robert McGinnis cover was John Creasey’s “So Young, So Cold, So Fair”, Dell 985.) Among the many authors for whose work Robert McGinnis has painted paperback covers are Edward S. Aarons, M.E. Chaber (pseudonym of Kendall Foster Crossen), Erle Stanley Gardner (including several books under Gardner’s “A.A. Fair” pseudonym) and Richard S. Prather. However, the books with which his work is most strongly associated are the Mike Shayne series, written by Davis Dresser and others under the pseudonym Brett Halliday, and the Carter Brown series, which was mainly written by Englishman Alan G. Yates, who migrated to Australia after World War 2.

Although his covers for crime and mystery books, including those writers mentioned in the previous paragraph, are probably his bestknown and most widely collected, Mr McGinnis has also painted a considerable number of covers for several other genres, including westerns, gothics, romance novels, historical novels and both movie and television tie-ins. Mr McGinnis rates his work for the Carter Brown, M.E. Chaber, and Richard S. Prather books as among his personal favourites. In addition to his paperback work, Robert McGinnis’ beautiful women have appeared on a number of movie posters, including those for “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”, “Barbarella” and the James Bond movies “Diamonds are Forever”, “Live and Let Die” and “Thunderball” . In recent years he has continued to produce paintings for paperbacks, movie posters and magazines, and has also devoted a considerable amount of time to “fine art”. S May 2011 | 35 | S
