words of advice

“First‚ never listen too much. I have two daughters‚ and naturally I tell them my point of view‚ but as you grow‚ you don’t have to listen to Papa and Mama anymore. In life and in design it’s the same. I love the word ‘culture.’ It represents your connection to the place where you live and your place within society. You have to understand how to speak from that position‚ how to announce it. Our desires are influenced by the dystopias that surround us. Technology and craft give us tools to find more possibilities for the future.” PATRICIA URQUIOLA Urquiola’s new Gogan sofa for Moroso takes its name from a Japanese term for time- and water-worn stones. “I don’t see any other possibility but for designers to abandon the ‘decorativism’ with which they…

Valle de Bravo is two hours and a world away from the commotion of Mexico City. Set on the shores of Lake Avándaro, it’s a popular weekend destination for well-todo residents of the capital, who flock to the town to savor its colonial charm and to sail, paraglide, and hike. In search of a quiet getaway that could double as a vacation and holiday hub for extended family and friends, a Mexico City couple found a three-and-a-half-acre property there and reached out to architect Javier Sánchez to come up with a design that would make the most of the site. Sánchez, founder of the architecture and development firm JSa, embraced the challenge, collaborating with architect Carlos Mar on a plan for three “floating monoliths” rising from the landscape. Strategically placed cutouts…

As one of the home’s most-used spaces, kitchens have to balance functionality and efficiency with style—whether traditional, contemporary, or a little bit of both. Open floor plans and central island designs increasingly expose the kitchen to other parts of the home, providing new opportunities to introduce eye-catching design elements. Whether playing with different scales, colors, or materials, identifying the right finishing touches can transform the kitchen into a unique expression of personal taste. The new Fusion™ Finish Series from Moen® offers an unexpected take on this formula with faucets available in dual-tone, mixed-metal finishes. Inspired by the beauty of slicing into a geode to expose its lustrous core, the faucet series presents a similarly arresting visual experience: the illusion of a matte black surface being sliced to reveal a gorgeous chrome…
