The Contemporary Palette : A Classicist’s View

Join Remains and the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art for an evening with renowned architect John B. Murray. A book signing and lecture will be held at our LA showroom, March 14th from 7 – 9 PM.

With a perspective that values symmetry, scale, and proportion, classical architect John B. Murray is repeatedly asked to look at decades-old, often historic, spaces, modify floor plans, and revisit materials and ornamentation to create a current and fresh spatial vision that addresses the needs of contemporary life. In this talk, John will share how his firm’s classical take on spatial and compositional problem-solving has evolved and embraced fresh, current concepts for elegant living—always with a classicist’s mandate to establish living spaces that are timeless. This highly visual presentation will showcase John’s work in one of New York City’s most iconic residential buildings, as well as several of the projects featured in his recently-released second monograph Contemporary Classical Architecture John B. Murray (The Monacelli Press).

Rockfields Exterior Lighting

Today we’re excited to roll out a new family of exterior lighting that has been in the works for some time! Introducing the Rockfields lanterns, wall sconces and pier lights. These classic octagonal fixtures consist of framed panels, wall brackets and bases of sand cast bronze – a traditional process of melting and pouring molten alloy into precise moulds created when a 3D printed pattern is pressed into a bed of sand. This technique leaves each form with wonderfully soft, organic texture. And while bronze is highly resistant to corrosion, over time it will patina and oxidize beautifully outdoors giving the feeling that the lights have always lived there. Each piece is assembled by hand and given its desired finish and glazed with clear panes of glass in our Brooklyn workshop. Choose from dark waxed bronze, antique or polished brass and verdigris.

Haussmann Retrospective on view through December 7th


We are delighted to announce the retrospective of TRIX & ROBERT HAUSSMANN
November 1st – December 7th 2018
ETH Zurich, Hönggerberg

THE LOG-O-RITHMIC SLIDE RULE

Trix and Robert Haussmann can be counted among the most important Swiss architects of the 20th century. Their multifaceted practice ranges from architecture to product design, furniture, and textiles—each of which make use of creative plays on form, function, and language. Since founding their studio in 1967, which they later called “Allgemeine Entwurfsanstalt Zürich”, Trix and Robert Haussmann were amongst the first to break with the premises of modern canonical orders and concepts, playfully reinterpreting the linguistic dogmas of architecture theories.

To combat the conformist impoverishment of expression in their time, the duo developed an experimental design instrument called The Log-O-Rithmic Slide Rule. Like a slide-ruler, this “concept-slider” makes use of the combinatorial potential of moving two scales against one another. In Trix and Robert Haussmann’s adaptation of the instrument, however, words—predominately adjectives used in architectural discourse—replace numerals, which, through endless combinations, produce imaginative architectures, languages, and images. The Oulipo-inspired concept-slider was intended to expand on prevailing notions of stylistic diversity with the use of randomly combined pairs of words.

For Trix and Robert Haussmann conceptual works are always tools in the design process for concrete projects. Therefore, in addition to architectural designs and models, the exhibition also presents realized projects like the arcades of Boutique Weinberg, sculptural objects that find themselves between art and design, as well as mirror-objects, that confound one’s perception of the exhibition space through illusionistic distortions.
Supported by Tisca Tischhauser AG, Vitra Design Foundation, ProHelvetia, Peter Röthlisberger, Herald St, London, Stiftung Kunstsammlung Teo Jakob and Caruso St John Architects.
