Orgatec: Working More Means Working Smarter

Once every two years the design world gathers to contemplate how office workers work. Orgatec, held in Cologne every other October, showcases the latest in practical design for our ever-evolving work spaces. We’re spending more time in the office than ever before, but longer hours don’t always translate into higher productivity. Being cooped up in a cubicle under fluorescent light rarely brings out the best in people.

Seeing Color: Design Miami Through the Eyes of Eric Chang, co-founder and chief designer of Brooklyn-based luxury furniture label, Hellman-Chang

Recently, I spent three whirlwind days in Miami during Design Miami. For the last few years the event has been making more and more noise in the design world. I went down the day before Art Basel Miami Beach opened, on December 2, to be a part of a panel called “Disruptors: Thinking Outside the Box” coinciding with the opening of an Andy Warhol Gallery and pop-up sale in JW Marriott, in partnership with Christie’s and Andy Warhol Museum. I had a great time exchanging thoughts with co-panelist Daniel Boulud on how we respectively “disrupted” our luxury industries. On December 3, I got to attend the Design Miami preview. This was the year of architect Peter Marino! He was the recipient of the inaugural Design Visionary Award and subject of an exhibition at Design Miami, in addition to a large exhibition on his work at the Bass Museum. Design Miami was a design feast tastefully supported by major corporate sponsors including Perrier Jouet, Audi, Fendi Casa and Swarowski, which each ...
