Meyer, a conceptual artist and designer who, with his brother Gene, creates collections of fabric, wallpaper, rugs and tiles, created three-dimensional hand-made “portraits” of some of the earliest creatives lost to AIDS -- including designers Angela Donghia and Robert Metzger and architect Alan Buchsbaum -- and installed them in the space, along with their obituaries from the New York Times.

20 Mar Chable Resort, Mexico in Luxury Magazine

Chable, a resort located about 45 minutes from Merida, Mexico, opened last year. Designed by Paulina Moran, it's one of the best resorts, all-around, that I have ever visited.
