Arje Griegst new Copenhagen boutique in T/The New York Times

The artist and jeweler Arje Griegst, who designed everything from the Conch fountain in Copenhagen’s Tivoli Gardens to porcelain for Royal Copenhagen to a tiara for the country’s queen, is a household name in Denmark. After his death in 2016, his son, Noam Griegst, a photographer and filmmaker, took over as creative director of his father’s eponymous studio, and, last fall, he opened the brand’s first boutique in 30 years, in Copenhagen, “gathering the universe of Griegst in my own way, while still embodying his hallucinatory and opulent spirit,” as he puts it. That meant, in part, working with Georg...

Aaron Poritz, Cristina Grajales
Aaron Poritz new works in T/The New York Times

For his show “Big Woods,” opening at Cristina Grajales Gallery in New York on Jan. 27, the Brooklyn-based designer Aaron Poritzwent back to the source. “I wanted to go for walks in the woods, find trees and envision pieces that fit within the shapes of them,” he says. “The tree is the starting point. I find that romantic.” The seven pieces he created for the show represent a stylistic departure for Poritz, who is best known for his masterfully crafted wooden furniture. “This was about exploring and being inspired by abstractions of the human form.” Two years in the making,...

Lake Flato rammed earth house Marfa Texas
Lake Flato home in Marfa, Texas in Architectural Digest

So here’s a kind of crazy story. Couple A buys land outside Marfa, Texas, and enlists Lake Flato architects to design a rammed earth home for them. That’s cool, but not the crazy part. They ultimately do not build the house, and sell the land to Couple B.  Couple B, rather than starting over with their own architect, go ahead with building the Lake Flato house originally designed for Couple A. Over 3 million pounds of Texas soil were involved. To see the full slide show and read the pretty interesting (to me) story, go here....

Profile of Shilpa Yarlagadda in the FT/How To Spend It

Aged just 24, Shilpa Yarlagadda has a resumé and an address book that most take decades to accrue. Four years ago, sitting in her Harvard dorm room, she co-founded , a jewellery company with a single product – the Duet Pinky Ring. A spiral design with two stones – representing a “pinky promise” for women to support one another – it was worn by Emma Watson, Nicole Kidman and Shailene Woodley on various red carpets before Shiffon even had a proper website. Better yet, it gives 50 per cent of its proceeds to female-led startups via its non-profit venture capital...
