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 …

Bowls, Bottles and Vases by Victoria Morris

Often I stumble across inspiration randomly whilst searching for individuals that we could represent in the shop. Before we opened I would have to go looking for, or sometimes pushing, a specific subject, which didn’t always lead to an interesting article or post. Saying that, now I often get led to things via contacts and individuals who’re in the same environment as us. Today I was lucky enough to get pointed in the direction of one …

Strick house by Oscar Niemeyer

Time for some more modernist architecture I think. I’ve been on the browse since wednesday when we highlighted Marion Berrin’s collection of Le Corbusier photos and luckily this morning I came across another beautiful build, this time by Oscar Niemeyer. I say architecture, and of course it is, because Oscar did design and create the building we have here, however the set I’m bringing across today does lean towards more interior design …

Visual Acoustics, The Modernism of Julius Shulman

So this is quite a tough post to write really, I’m not sure where to start. I’ve been on and off writing about furniture and such over the past few weeks but this particular one is more about a film and someones work, it was all inspired thanks to an interview I came across last night. The specific interview revolved around a different photographer that goes by the name of Pedro E. Guerrero …

Short Film on Heath Ceramics

We love supporting companies with integrity and substance at the core of their existence and Heath Ceramics in California fits right into this very mould. They’ve modernised the project started by Edith Heath back in 1948 to remain ahead of the current market without compromising the legacy Edith left upon passing in 2005. Today whilst browsing around their webpage I came across this short film on the company which goes a long way in sum …
