LAWRENCE WEINER Artist Over a six-decade career, Weiner has made language his primary medium, democratising art and placing the responsibility for its making into the minds of his viewers. For our artist’s recipe series, the pioneering conceptualist offers up an open-faced sandwich, its backstory and recipe typeset in his unmistakable style (page 218). Weiner is working on solo exhibitions in Sardinia, Oslo, Palma de Mallorca and Vancouver ALEXANDRA PECHMAN Writer We deployed Pechman to West Hollywood to delve into the eccentric tale of Atelier MVM and its founder, Matthias Vriens-McGrath, an editorial photographer-turned-decorative art virtuoso (page 070). ‘I loved hearing all Matthias’ stories, spanning the worlds of art, fashion and design,’ says Pechman. Having lived in New York, Rio de Janeiro, Nanjing and Chicago, she has now settled in Los Angeles. Her versatile flair sees…

Inside story Welcome to our annual Design Directory issue, celebrating the best of design to fill every corner of your home. We’ve scoured the globe for standout new pieces, and brought them together in The W* House (page 085), complemented by our 56-page Kitchen & Bathroom Digest. We also showcase the best new architects to watch and commission, bringing together 14 prodigiously talented practices from around the world for a photo shoot in Berlin, at David Chipperfield’s James-Simon-Galerie, a visitors’ centre that will serve the five museums of Museum Island. See our edit of their breakthrough projects in our Architects’ Directory (page 074), illustrated by Josephin Ritschel.

belle de jour

There’s bourgeois bite on the Paris catwalks. The city’s smartest residents have provided inspiration for autumn accessories, with 1970s silhouettes, luxurious fabrications and brass button bags all essentials for the dame à la mode. High on our own haute hit list? A pair of moccasins in sumptuous quilted leather and a chic Saint Laurent trilby. For pre-fall 2019, Dior has celebrated the maison’s historic birthplace with the 30 Montaigne collection. It refers to the upmarket avenue where the brand’s first studio stands, an hôtel particulier that Monsieur Dior inaugurated in 1946. The collection features signatures of the maison, including a shoulder bag with a ‘CD’ logo clasp, the ultimate bourgeois buckle. BORN AGAIN In 1899, Antoni Gaudí completed Casa Calvet for textile manufacturer Pere Màrtir Calvet. The Barcelona dwelling was one…

Mariam Kamara spent six years as a software developer in the US before deciding to study architecture, but she already has an impressive CV that includes housing and public buildings in her home country, Niger, and a mission to develop a contemporary architecture that responds to her region’s customs, culture and climate. Currently helping her in that mission is David Adjaye, who is working with her as part of Rolex’s Mentor & Protégé Arts Initiative. Adjaye began mentoring Kamara in May last year while she was working on the design of a cultural centre in her home town of Niamey. Tanzanian-born Adjaye is doing other work in West Africa (he’s currently building Ghana’s National Cathedral in Accra) and says he felt an immediate affinity with Kamara’s practice. ‘She works to her…

Raking the shorelines for culinary ingredients and cosmetic remedies has long been a popular pursuit, and now the design world is getting in on the act. More nostalgic in nature, design’s focus is on the maritime treasures such as shells and pebbles that make up childhood collections. We’ve spotted a vase by Ferm Living that looks like a conch; sea anemone-like tableware for Snøhetta’s new Under restaurant, located underwater off a rocky shoreline in southern Norway; sculptures by Fiamma Colonna Montagu that look like stone stacks; trays and wall hooks by AYTM that resemble clam shells; and floor lights by Sylvain Rieu-Piquet that could pass for opaque resin pebbles when switched off, and are soothingly phosphorescent when lit. AGENDA US sculptor Louise Nevelson was known for her abstract monochromatic assemblages of…
