The modern design of a newly-constructed East Hampton home reflects its waterfront location. The five-bedroom, 5 1⁄2 -bathroom home near Three Mile Harbor is on the market for $2.995 million.
The owner, architect Sandra Brauer, designed the master bathroom to look like an ocean wave, says listing agent Vincent Horcasitas of Saunders & Associates. The large windows throughout the home take in the wooded grounds.
The home has more than 3,000 square feet of living space on the two upper floors and an additional 1,600 square feet on the finished lower level.

Diller Scofidio + Renfro’s 2010 How Wine Became Modern exhibition at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art is one of a series of museum shows the architects have developed over the years that challenge the master sense. The exhibition design, which included a “smell wall,” attempted to make tactile the sensory aspects (aroma, color, texture) of wine. Courtesy Matthew Millman
What comes to mind when you encounter the term “sensory design”? Chances are it is an image: a rain room, a funky eating utensil, a conspicuously textured chair. But the way things actually feel, smell, even taste, is much harder to capture. This difficulty points to how deeply ingrained the tyranny of vision is. Might the other senses be the keys to unlocking broader empirical truths? Does the ocular-centric bias of art, architecture, and design actually preclude a deeper collective experience?
Such questions are at the heart of the current Cooper Hewitt exhibition The Senses: Design Beyond Vision, curated by E..

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..

Target had a big win in its home business late last year with a collection by Chip and Joanna Gaines, stars of HGTV's Fixer Upper. Hearth & Hand with Magnolia and its modern farmhouse aesthetic is honey for many of Target’s shoppers, who want a touch of Joanna’s signature old-is-new style. The product line’s appeal is its distinctive, yet familiar and comfortable design at prices everyone can afford.
But for other shoppers Target needs to attract – Millennials who are in their prime for home-related purchases – it may not their cup of tea. Urban Millennials in their first (and likely small) apartment or home leaning towards a more contemporary design that won’t clutter tight spaces may not be drawn to that farmhouse-inspired look. Now Target has a home line designed for them: Made By Design.
Target sets the table in a statement: “Guests – especially those establishing their first homes – crave quality everyday items that will simplify t..
