Modern Furnishings No. 01

08 Little Big JM103 C08 Little BigJM103 W.W + JM103 W.N

This is the first in a new installment that we are calling, "Modern Furnishings". Similar to our long running series, "Intriguing Earth Architecture", these posts will feature new and unique designs. Additionally, the idea behind the series would be to highlight new design talent from around the world for our readers. The first to be presented here is Jeff Miller, a New York based designer that has both won many awards and been showcased in several exhibitions. Feel free to leave a comment or two.

David Macaulay Speaks At TED

Here is the description of the speech given by Macaulay from the TED website:
"Despite a love and fascination for Rome dating to his days as an architecture student, David Macaulay found the path to his book Rome Antics took some unusual (and frustrating) turns. Through failed pop-up designs, scribbled out title possibilities, surreal sketchbook pages (think "Piranesi meets Escher"), and rambling story lines, Macaulay details each step of his winding journey towards completion of his illustrated homage to the city."
For those of you unfamiliar with his work, Macaulay is in outstanding illustrator that has released many visually descriptive books showing methods of construction. Some of his many titles include: "Cathedral", "City", "Pyramid", "Castle", "Mill" and "Mosque". He also has produced an intricate illustrated book that showed the inner workings of a city entitled, "Underground".
