An Erwin Hauer screen, formed from a weather-resistant composite of cement and crushed marble, clads a São Paulo residence by Studio MK27. Photography by Nelson Kon.Austrian-American sculptor and Interior Design Hall of Fame member Erwin Hauer passed away on December 22, 2017. He was 91.

Put Shine In The Sculpture

CLINTON, Iowa (KWQC) — It’s a tribute to Clinton County history. The World War One monument is dedicated to the men from the county who made the supreme sacrifice during the war. The memorial was built in 1930. The designer was French born sculptor Leonard Crunelle. Time has taken its toll on the monument. So, the local historic preservation commission Is trying to land some grant money and perhaps money from the city to help restore the monument. A company from Minnesota will do an assessment as to what needs to be done to the sculpture. Ninety years of corrosion has effected the statue. It could cost almost thirty thousand dollars to clean it up. A soldier, grief stricken mother, and two other figures adorn the statue. Alongside the monument are the names of other local veterans who died or went missing in action during World War One. The goal is to get the sculpture on the National Historical Registry. The U.S. Department of the Interior could make that final decision. Let's b..

Wendell Castle, Father of American Art Furniture, Dies at 85

Just four months ago, recalls R & Company co-founder Evan Snyderman, an 85-year-old Wendell Castle sat on the concrete floor of his Scottsville, New York studio, chisel in hand, carving away at his latest creation. "That’s what makes him a true artist," Snyderman says of the prolific woodworker, designer, and sculptor who died Saturday evening at his home outside of Rochester. "He’s always on to the next thing; he’s more interested in the future than the past." At the beginning of his 60-year career, "artist" was not a word used to describe the makers of chairs and tables. But Castle, who was born in Emporia, Kansas in 1932, studied industrial design and sculpture at the University of Kansas, and moved to New York in the early 1960s, where he became an Artist in Residence and professor at Rochester Institute of Technology and set up a studio in nearby Scottsville, has spent a lifetime earning the title, filling countless notebooks, galleries, and museums with an endless stream of ideas..

Mumbai's reD Architects bring their inimitable sense of aesthetics to their new headquarters

What happens when you put four architects in one room? More like a 4,000-square-foot warehouse that has been sitting empty for years? “Battles and foot-stomping,” laughs Apoorva Shro. At the new headquarters of reD Architects in Prabhadevi, Mumbai, Shro sits alongside her partners, Ekta and Rajiv Parekh, and Maithili Raut. Recently shifted from their Parel set-up, the four brought together more than a decade’s worth of experience in architecture and design to their new space. The office opens up to a sprawling workspace, punctuated by long desks, and high wooden ceilings and steel beams. Whimsy and humour are key to the character, translated through cardboard cut-out table lamps or the slate kitchen counter, or even the rubber band sliding doorway. A “play” area at the back, with a small garden and concrete table in the middle, allows for a pause amid the din. The four, along with their private cabins that reflect individual (read: disparate) sensibilities, pool their outputs in the co..
