Fall has come and I for one, am thrilled. Fall in Southern California means the weather cools. Yes, it cools elsewhere in Fall but here, it takes the edge off of summer and the tourists have mostly gone home which leaves the beaches empty, a great time for a second, cooler summer. It also means WestEdge is coming.This will be our 5th year as a media partner and our fourth year hosting live conversations. This year, we have some special things to share so I hope you can make it out October 19th through the 22nd at Santa Monica’s Barker Hangar.

As we prepared for the show this year, we found a conversation from last year that you haven’t heard before on Convo By Design. This conversation is moderated by Veronica Miller of Modenus and features Beth Dotolo and Carolina Gentry of Pulp Design Studios, as well as Lori Gilder and Rebecca Reynolds of Kitchen Design Network. I enjoyed this conversation a great deal and I’m happy to share it with you. This is Reimagining the Classics for Modern Living. This is all about influences and influencers of the past and creating on success, breathing new life into classic work.

This is Part 1 of Reimagining the Classics for Modern Living. If you like what you hear, And, I hope you do, please, go to iTunes and off to the left, click subscribe.

I have a strong respect for creatives. I am fascinated by multidisciplinary creatives. Laurie Haefele has been a previous guest on the podcast and she is back, but this time in a very different way. Call this episode a case study. We went to see Laurie at a recently completed project in Culver City, California. I named this project “Beautifully Bronzed” the moment I walked in and if you check out any of the videos or images on Instagram or Pinterest, you’ll see why. The finishes are all brass against against a dark blue color in the cabinetry. Just an editors note here, before you email me and tell me that brass and bronze are different, I am aware of that. There was a little creative license taken in the naming. But it does beg the question about use of brass versus bronze. Since both are made of primarily copper, they share a number of characteristics but because brass has zinc, and bronze does not, you get a slightly yellower color from brass, which in this case, paired with a dark blue cabinet against a white counter and backsplash made for a really rich look and provided a pop. It was really a wonderful use of color and materials. You won’t be able to tell that from the podcast, but you will from the videos on our YouTube channel so please make sure to pop over there and find some additional inspiration.

Laurie thought of everything here and I’m happy that we could bring you a walking tour. Please enjoy this conversation with kitchen designer and architect, Laurie Haefele.

This episode features Nic Neumann, Coo of Sky-Frame, a Swiss company that manufactures frameless doors and windows. They say they provide “a view, not a window.” Their work is elegant, Swiss engineered and Swiss made. Their product is sleek and detailed and that is why I thought you would like to hear a bit more about it. It is always fun speaking with designers and architects about projects, collaboration and one of the challenges that continually comes up is sourcing new product. One frustration in the business is that manufacturers don’t spend enough time marketing their product to those that could be using it.

Effective marketing has always been a challenge in the shelter space. There are not a lot of suitable outlets, some are not cost-effective and others just don't fit for a number of reasons. Meet Nic Neumann, Chief Operating Officer and manager of US Operations. Nic and I discuss the business, some remarkable facts about Sky-Frame’s Swiss headquarters and how they work with architects and designers to make sure the product is ordered, manufactured and delivered with precision.

Please enjoy this conversation with Sky-Frame COO, Nic Neumann. And, if you do, please, go to iTunes and off to the left, click subscribe.

I met Mark Weaver at the Vondom showroom in the Pacific Design Center on an absolutely stunning Southern California afternoon. We spoke for quite some time and following is that conversation. Mark Weaver is a highly accomplished designer, he teaches design at UCLA and he is one of those individuals that not only knows his craft, but articulates it well so others can learn from his experience. Mark and I cover a lot of ground that ranges from high end luxury design, teaching design, working with different types of clients and approach to the business.

We discuss two of his most recent projects, The Sanger Project and Villa Della Costa. These spectacular homes are works of art creatively utilizing architecture and design juxtaposed with simply amazing landscape. These projects appear as if they were simply painted onto that landscape which is always a sign of architectural and design mastery.

Please enjoy this conversation with designer, Mark Weaver. And if you do, please, go to iTunes and off to the left, click subscribe.

Following is a conversation I had with designer Kyle Schuneman. Kyle has a keen eye for style and has developed a significant following through his book publication, bedding collection, furniture collection and social media influence. Kyle first published an apartment design book geared toward big city, small space living. This was in 2012 before the current big city boom. Kyle has a focus on designing for the space, not the budget. His work has been featured in Esquire, Dwell, Cosmopolitan, Sunset, L’Uomo Vogue and Angeleno Interiors. He also works in prop styling which is an area that I think more and more designers will be utilizing in the very near future. Convo By Design has been featuring set decorators for quite some time. They work in creating a mood to fit a script, Kyle’s work has been in commercial use for companies like Target, Apple and Martha Stewart. Kyle is a match-maker of style. He bends and blends, combines and molds to create a complete and textured look. If you want to learn about his approach, keep listening.

This episode features a true stand out in the biz, architect Ward Jewell. This is a conversation about architecture, architectural styles with a critical focus on use of styles, avoiding whats hot now simply because they are popular and focusing on generational style. We talk about music, teamwork and collaboration. This is a part of the Convo By Design Influencer Series, of which Jewell is certainly a part. Jewell has applied a unique approach to Mid-Century Modern in Beverly Hills and a Modern spin on a residential unit in New York’s Plaza Hotel that is dripping with style and showcasing an extensive modern art collection. Jewell talks about the basics. Drafting, listening, collaborating and using what you have to create what you want. Thank you for listening to this episode of Convo By Design, if you enjoy it, and I hope you do, please give us a positive rating on iTunes or wherever you get your podcasts.

Thank you for listening. You might notice the new music in this episode. Special thanks to Electric Sol for providing Your Love Makes Me High. This is a track from their second album called, DOSE. If you like what you hear, check them out at electricsolmusic.com. Following is a conversation about digital strategy and social media for your design and architecture brand. After participating in hundreds of interviews with designers, architects, product manufacturers and other creatives, a few issues have emerged as constant challenges for those in the industry. One one issue that always comes up is managing social media for those in the trade. There are so many options, use more images, less images but more high quality images how many profiles can one person manage while still running an architect or design business? It’s a challenge and more than likely one you are currently struggling with right now. Following is a conversation with Catherine Minervini founder of Green Owl Studio, Emily Hooper, Digital media strategist and writer. Also involved is designer, Jolene Krauss. Jolene is an interior designer whose work has appeared on HGTV and was recognized as a TASTEMAKER by Traditional Home Magazine. This conversation is applicable to any business owner who struggles with making social media work for you instead of being another task on a long to do list. But, this was created specifically for the design trade. I think you will find it useful. This conversation was recorded LIVE from the WestEdge Design Fair in Santa Monica from the Convo By Design Social Lounge Presented by Snyder Diamond and featuring partnerships with Warner Bros. Design Studios and. Ryan White Designs.

Do you know what the Triforium is? I am a native #Angeleno, born and raised and before the LA Design Festival, I had no idea so if you don’t know what it is, don’t feel bad.  The Triforium is a six-story, 60-ton public artwork project in #Downtown #Los Angeles. Created by artist #JOSEPHYOUNG . Its original design includes 1,494 multicolored hand blown, Italian glass prisms that glow in synchrony to music from a 79-note glass bell carillon, making it the largest musical instrument of its kind on Earth. It stands in Fletcher-Bowron Square, in the shadow of LA’s iconic city hall. Mocked by politicians, denounced by art critics, and limited by then available technology, the Triforium has nevertheless survived, it is NOT one of our city's most beloved landmarks, but it should be. Robert Stockwell, the Mall's architect, commissioned Joseph Young to execute a tall work that would serve as both a focal point and as a symbol for the Mall. Young's first proposal, a bell tower, was discarded after problems arose in the planned sound system. He then designed the Triforium to symbolize the interdependence of the three branches of government. Conceived to integrate art, science and music into a unified physical, visual and audio theme, the work was described by Young as "a bold, confident statement that expresses man's faith in the future." Attached at approximately the midpoint of each of the three two-legged arrow shaped legs, is a bay of 22 vertical steel columns of various lengths containing between 19 and 24 colored glass prisms. Each prism was handblown in Italy and houses a light in its hollow center. The total weight of the Triforium's 1494 prisms is approximately 15 tons. An electronic #harmonium, a 79 note glass bell carillon with two octaves of English bells, and two octaves of Flemish bells forged by #GeraldFinkenbeiner of #Waltham, #Massachusetts provide the music for the #Triforium. Operated manually from a console, or controlled from a computer, the bells transform sound to color and regulate the intensity of the lights inside the prisms. To avoid audio distortion, loudspeakers hang below the arches of the reinforced precast concrete legs instead of behind the glass bays as originally planned.

This is the story of a creative group trying to save the Triforium, one glass cube at a time. The Triforium Project is comprised of Tanner Blackman, Carmen Zella who were not present for our conversation, the hilarious Tom Carroll was, as were #ClaireEvans and #JonaBechtolt of the band #Yacht. Consider yourself up to speed and meet the Triforium Project.
