Dwell Celebrates Another Successful City Modern
As an extension to the sold-out "Creativity & Constraint" event at the #DellVenue during Dwell's City Modern 2013, Designer Jonathan Adler and Dell Creative Director Tommy Lynn discuss the intersection between design authorship and design inspiration and how that effects their design process.
Dwell and New York magazine co-hosted City Modern 2013 this past October, a celebration of New York’s incredible modern design and architecture, in support of Archtober. The week kicked off with home tours in Manhattan and Brooklyn followed by a week of design events populated with cross-disciplinary notables. From architect David Hotson’s over-the-top Skyhouse tour to designer Jonathan Adler and his sister Amy Adler, Professor of Law at NYU, discussing the intersection between design authorship and design inspiration, it was a week of intellectual commentary balanced with first-hand views of the city’s most striking modern architecture. Dozens of speakers connected with 1000+ design enthusiasts, culminating with the launch of the City Modern Salon. Dwell would like to thank this year’s generous sponsors Dell, Thos. Moser, Hansgrohe/AXOR, Atelier Courbet and Resource Furniture for their support in making this programming possible.
