The world-renowned Danish multi-artist and designer, Poul Henningsen, designed many furniture, pianos and grand pianos. For the first time ever it is now documented with a large work of 336 pages, which in text and beautiful images reviews the many exciting designs and art pieces. The book has been titled "PH Furniture & Pianos – The Revival of Poul Henningsen Design Classics". PH began by designing wooden and steel pipe furniture more than a hundred years ago, back in 1919 and continued until the mid-1950s. At the same time, he designed a number of iconic and futuristic pianos and pianos in the 1930s. PH never started an actual production of the furniture because the unique pieces of art were so difficult to manufacture with the production technology of the time. There are therefore no or only few of the old PH furniture, but a single version of both the world-renowned PH Snake Stoop and the PH Hosech Chair as well as a PH Grand Piano are currently on display at the permanent exhibition at Designmuseum Denmark. Today, a greater number of PH's furniture as well as pianos and grand pianos are brought to life by the combination of modern production technologies and the best craft traditions in factories in Denmark, Latvia, Germany and Switzerland. Ph Mirror from 1939, which lamp manufacturer Louis Poulsen has previously produced, has also been put into production in Denmark by PH Furniture. To mark this, the company behind the new productions has chosen to publish a book. The book contains a very extensive collection of images of the new PH products along with a wide range of tales about PH's many pieces of art and the new creation. Søren V. Svendsen, founder and ceo of the company, said: "Poul Henningsen is much different from the iconic PH Lamps, and for the first time it is now documented with a comprehensive work on the many furniture and musical instruments that PH designed over several decades. At the same time, we talk about the journey we have been on to bring PH's unique designs and art pieces into the 21st century. 21st century". The book can be acquired from PH Furniture and PH Pianos in the store at Bredgade in Copenhagen or online.

CARLO MOLLINO A TRIP DOWN MEMORY LANE WITH THE FIRST LOVE OF MY LIFE "Amarcord is today a word which in Italian indicates a nostalgic remembrance, the melancholy speaking of moments long gone in time". I was twenty when I first saw a piece of furniture by Carlo Mollino. One day I went to visit the antique dealer and friend Iorio Zolino in his shop in Turin. That afternoon he showed me a furniture piece designed by the then unknown architect Carlo Mollino fin 1944 for Ada and Cesare Minola’s home in Turin. It was love at first sight… My legs started to shake and my heart skipped a beat. For the first time ever, I felt the irresistible desire to buy an object immediately, without thinking twice. I quickly calculated in my mind how much I had in my savings account, and along with some borrowed money, the furniture which had stolen my heart became mine. The following day I had the piece moved to my gallery, which at the time was a few pieces piled up in a corner in the back room of my father's gallery. I started calling all the customers who were interested in avant-garde design to tell them about my discovery, but the response was discouraging. Unexpectedly, a few days later, a Turinese architect called me and bought the piece for an important sum for the time. Over the next weeks I started to receive a few phone calls from collectors interested in the mysterious architect, but the most important call was that of a well-known gallery owner from abroad was determined to acquire all of Mollino's furniture pieces which I was able to find. Using all of my shrewd detective skills, I discovered the address of the aeronautical engineer who was the owner of Mollino's last studio. During a visit to the studio, I had the opportunity to sift through Mollino’s documents and jotted down the names of some of his contacts. One of these names was “Lattes”, the owner of an important publishing house. I found their number in the Yellow Pages and immediately gave them a call. I was informed that the publishing house had recently closed its doors and that the furniture designed by Mollino for their offices had been transferred to a storage space. I was there in no time. At first glance, it looked like a cemetery: dark and dusty, with sheets concealing the refined and sensual forms of the piled-up furniture. I bought all of the pieces on the spot, and once they were delivered to my gallery my greatest pleasure was to admire them with my five senses: caressing the surfaces, observing forms and details, breathing in the sweet smell of wood. Since then more than 40 years have gone by. From my first “love at first sight” to today, a succession of exciting and surreal adventures (and misfortunes) linked to the architect have followed. Some of the works by Carlo Mollino which I sold over these forty years have travelled around the world, while others have stayed put in the homes of the first collector which I sold them to. Other pieces now find their way back to me today... And when they enter my Gallery, my heart still skips a beat, exactly like when I was twenty.

A Stanford study has proven that working from home increases productivity. Telecommuting employees take shorter breaks and have fewer sick days off. Moreover, working from home improves work-life balance and maintains a healthier lifestyle: remote workers clock in an extra 25 minutes of physical activity each week and save on average over $4,500 on commute and fuel individually per year. As many companies are switching to work remotely, designing work-friendly space in your own home becomes especially important. These home office design ideas want to inspire you to get all your work done and generate joyous beauty to your surroundings while doing so.

PHOTOGRAPHY'S LAST CENTURY | THE ANN TENENBAUM AND THOMAS H. LEE COLLECTION AT THE MET MARCH 10 - JUNE 20, 2020
Exhibition Overview This exhibition will celebrate the remarkable ascendancy of photography in the last century, and Ann Tenenbaum and Thomas H. Lee's magnificent promised gift of over sixty extraordinary photographs in honor of The Met's 150th anniversary in 2020. The exhibition will include masterpieces by the medium's greatest practitioners, including works by Paul Strand, Dora Maar, Man Ray, and László Moholy-Nagy; Edward Weston, Walker Evans, and Joseph Cornell; Diane Arbus, Andy Warhol, Sigmar Polke, and Cindy Sherman. The collection is particularly notable for its breadth and depth of works by women artists, its sustained interest in the nude, and its focus on artists' beginnings. Strand's 1916 view from the viaduct confirms his break with the Pictorialist past and establishes the artist's way forward as a cutting-edge modernist; Walker Evans's shadow self-portraits from 1927 mark the first inkling of a young writer's commitment to visual culture; and Cindy Sherman's intimate nine-part portrait series from 1976 predates her renowned series of "film stills" and confirms her striking ambition and stunning mastery of the medium at the age of twenty-two. AT THE MET FIFTH AVENUE MARCH 10 - JUNE 28, 2020
