Furniture Design by Milo Baughman

Furniture Design by Milo Baughman

Mr Baughman’s designs are obviously built on the legacy of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Marcel Breuer, but the use of modern-day materials, colors and American West Coast style make do for functional furniture which appealed, and was available, to a large public. We, at Mimi Berlin, like his dramatic designs very much and could easily live the rest of our lives with the pink sectional sofa with steel bottom.

Memento Mori with Antique Pocket Watches

Memento Mori Antique with Pocket Watches

Memento Mori (remember that you can die) is the medieval Latin theory and practice of reflection on mortality, especially as a means of considering the vanity of earthly life and the transient nature of all earthly goods and pursuits. These timepieces were  made to remind people to stick to these, christian, rules for succesful living (and after-life) by the minute….. Clever!

Skull-shaped timepieces as reminder that we all are immortal…

Rupert von Rom Dries van Noten Inspirations on exhibit in Antwerp

Dries van Noten Inspirations on exhibit in Antwerp

The other day we, Mimi Berlin, visited the exhibition “Inspirations” by Dries van Noten, in the couturier’s home town of Antwerp, Belgium.
What a great exibithion! And SO marvelously well designed!

Usually in fashion you have to make do with inspirational images on paper, but Dries van Noten shows us the real thing; On show, next to his designs, are Picasso, Damien Hirst, Balenciaga, Balmain, Worth, and many others …….all in the flesh!
Many inspirational movies and fashion shows are beautifully incorporated throughout the transformed fashion museum. Also the sense of smell is an important factor; a scent to accompany your vision can be smelled by touching different walls.
If you haven’t already; make sure you go and see the Inspirations of Dries van Noten. The exhibition was initiated and realized by Les Arts Décoratifs, Paris (01/03-02/11/14), we were told it’s a bit different and smaller in Antwerp. But the new version in Antwerp stays true to its original incarnation in Paris, highlighting the sources of Dries Van Noten’s inspiration by juxtaposing his creations with emblematic past and present works of art and fashion, again curated by Pamela Golbin (chief curator of 20th-century and contemporary fashion and textiles at Les Arts Décoratifs.) and adapted for the MoMu by Arter, the agency that designed the original exhibition for Les Arts Décoratifs.

Dries van Noten Inspirations, MoMu, February 13 – July 19, 2015.

Our must-see expert Rüpert von Rom posted earlier on “Inspiration” including a video of Dries van Noten talking about the exhibition. Continue reading
