Lamps and Lighting by Foscarini

Lamps and Lighting by Foscarini

One aspect of my office that’s severely lacking is in the lighting department, I’m pretty fussy, as you can imagine, and I’ve had a problem finding good quality lights that don’t take up too much room. A Serge Mouille piece for example is beautiful, but they’re very large and the price is pretty off-putting, there has to be different options out there that I haven’t already seen before. Plus, it’s not that often that you get a space big enough in a house …

Basically, Georges Jouve is known as being …

Interview with Mike Dorsey, Director of The Oyler House: Richard Neutra’s Desert Retreat

You may remember us late last year writing a piece on a new documentary titled The Oyler House: Richard Neutra’s Desert Retreat by director Mike Dorsey. I’ve been back and forward emailing him, checking in on the project whenever I can, so I thought it would be a nice touch to hold a little Q&A session with Mike and get his thoughts on the project whenever I can, so I thought it would be …
