Details of David Hockney's paintings from his retrospective show at the Metropolitan Museum in NYC. How do you paint water in an abstract, representative way? It’s is no small feat. This is how. Splash, stream, bubble, undulate, spray.
Made of layers of patterns that shimmer optically, and LED lights, the NYC Dior facade moves with you as you walk past it. The Cannage Pattern is visible on a small scale when you're close to it. Get enough distance from it and you can see a much larger-scale version appear on the building. Nice. The pattern originally came from the rattan cane chairs at the Dior salon and has been applied to a variety of products over the years. LED lights make this a low maintenance, energy-saving solution and a standout signature — the best of all worlds.
Handsome and eye-catching veined black marble flanks one end of the new lounge area: part of a renovation by Diller Scofidio + Renfro. Plans are for the more than $400 million expansion project to be completed by 2019. It will place the store downstairs, open the lobby area up and create more gallery spaces, among other things.
Seasonal pattern and type at H&M — a nice combo of organic and geometric shapes. The subdued colors, lighting on the plants and layering of transparencies make a strong AND subtle statement.
