Design in The New York Times
I am alternately excited to get the New York Times design and living magazine, and depressed because everything in it is so expensive. The current issue will also cause a case of Déjà vu to TreeHugger readers. There is an article on green walls that covers Ann Demeulemeester's store in Seoul designed by Mass Studies, Patrick Blanc and Mathieu Lehanneur's Bel Air. Alice Rawsthorn, usually one of my favourite writers, takes the easy way out and trashes compact flourescents for their light quality and slow start-up (dead issues with good new bulbs)- when will a writer of her quality talk to the Tom Dixons and other designers who are doing great things with them?
