Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum Plans First Museum Exhibition for Willi Smith

STREET-INSPIRED FASHION: The Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum is planning the first museum exhibition for the late pioneering American designer Willi Smith.
Scheduled to open in March at the Upper East Side cultural institution, “Willi Smith: Street Couture” will showcase an array of streetwear from the fashion label WilliWear. After launching the company in 1976 with his partner Laurie Mallet, Smith dove into the realm of collaborating through partnerships with artists, designers and performers. In doing so, the aim was to erode social, cultural and economic boundaries. In 1980, for example, his models danced, pranced and glided down the runway to the music of a jazz quartet of the airy Alvin Ailey Dance Center.
When the exhibition is unveiled on March 13, it will include 200-plus works by Smith and collaborators such as Juan Downey, Dan Friedman, Keith Haring, Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company, Les Levine, Dianne McIntyre, Nam June Paik and SITE. Visitors to the Cooper Hewitt will find a number of pieces that have not been shown publicly in more than 30 years. The exhibition will run through Oct. 25.
“Street Couture” takes its name from Smith’s most iconic collection, which was presented in 1983. At that time, the designer

Polimoda Appoints Massimiliano Giornetti Head of Fashion Design

MILAN — Florentine fashion school Polimoda has tapped Massimiliano Giornetti as its first head of fashion design.
A Polimoda alumnus, Giornetti worked for 16 years at Salvatore Ferragamo, from 2010 to 2016 as creative director of the women’s and men’s lines. In 2017, Giornetti started designing the collections of Chinese luxury brand Shanghai Tang, which he exited at the end of 2018.
“Polimoda’s success reflects our ability to understand the spirit of the time and possibly anticipate it. Observing the crisis of large retailers, I think that fashion will soon need a new wave of creativity and well-made products. Polimoda has direct access to made-in-Italy know-how and revels in ethnic, cultural and gender diversity among students; these are ideal conditions for the birth of contemporary design,” said Polimoda director Danilo Venturi. “Meeting Massimiliano was serendipitous: he knows how contemporary fashion works, he is a former student, he reached the highest levels on the international scene and shares my same vision. The school will be a bit more maison with him and this will enable us to once again make our contribution.”
In his new role, Giornetti, who will officially start working at Polimoda at the beginning of the fall semester in September, is

Every photo is a memory and every building is created from these memories and experiences of architects. Or are they? That is what I will discuss with you in this essay. It was written as part of my course at university but I wanted to share with you my thoughts. It is only a short piece but I hope you will gain a lot out of it. When thinking about skyscrapers two American cities come to mind, New York and Chicago. However, why do the skylines take the form they do, and is it the architects that design them, or are they a product of their time? This writing argues if architects had anything to do with the design of the early high-rise buildings discussing all the different factors that influenced their appearance.

Four Design Movements that Formed How We Think

Co-written by Dr. Barry Katz

2015-03-24-1427173670-5012961-designmovements.jpg

Even more than art, design shapes how we experience our surroundings and ourselves. Think about it: art, almost by definition, abstracts from the details of everyday life; design shapes them in the most immediate way. Designers curate ideas and condense them into sensory expressions; they make ideas tangible–bad ones as well as good ones! Design constrains our behaviors and molds our perceptions and has been doing so for one hundred years.

The industrial revolution transformed the world by ushering in a new era of mechanized mass production. Cheap, factory-made goods became affordable to the general public and a middle class emerged, defined above all by its purchasing power. But this unprecedented material affluence came with a price: mass-produced products lost their soul, every bit as much as the factory laborers who tended the machines that made them.

English Arts & Craft
The English Arts & Craft Movement represented the first reaction against the debasement of the commodity in the industrial age. The “art workers” who formed themselves around the gigantic personality of William Morris (1834-96), perceived mass manufacturing as impersonal and a threat to human well-being–“For what is beauty,” asked Morris, “but the expression of a man’s joy in his labor?” The rough-hewn products of the Arts & Crafts movement celebrate the materials of which they are made and the hand of the craftsman who made them.

Bauhaus
In the aftermath of the First World War it had become clear that there was no turning back to the romantic, pre-industrial idylls of the Arts & Crafts. Under the leadership of Walter Gropius, the Bauhaus (1918-33) embraced the machine and searched for an aesthetic consistent with the technologies of modern production. Desk lamps, teapots, and typography all came to express the rational, rhythmic, geometrical manufacturing processes that made them possible.

Streamline
Machine Age America made its own contribution to the aesthetics of the everyday. Celebrity “industrial designers” such as Raymond Loewy, Henry Dreyfuss, and Norman Bel Geddes helped to lift America out of the Depression by rekindling the desire to consume: swoopy locomotives, streamlined office furniture, and skyscrapers whose tiered setbacks made them look like rocket ships firing themselves into the sky. Nothing was immune to the hand of the designer whose motto was, “Never leave well enough alone.”

Postmodernism
Inevitably, a reaction set in: Postmodernism went to war against the growing monotony of beige cubicles, Helvetica typefaces, and urban grids in favor of a palette of pastels, ambiguous forms, and a playful romp through the corridors of historical styles. In search of “Design Semantics,” designers experimented with new forms of expressing the emerging consumer electronic products. Proponents of “Human-Centered Design” have argued that the search for style is misplaced, and that the forms of products must evolve out of respect for the needs of the people who will use them.

What is the next major movement in design? Crowd-sourced design? Mass customization? One-off products created by the citizen-designers of the Makers Movement? The increasing democratization of design and manufacturing suggests that it will not be long before each of us end up having our own personal movement!
