Eva Zeisel

House
Eva Zeisel was born in 1906 in Hungary and grew up to become a world-renowned designer, initially working with ceramics, but later on working with all kinds of other materials, including glass, textiles, metal and wood.

Gaetano Pesce

House
Thoughtful, iconoclastic and humorous, Gaetano Pesce’s famous designs echo his personality. We interviewed him in his Soho workspace that was filled with objects that come directly from an unhindered imagination, and our conversation with him was similarly unguarded – boy, does he say what he thinks. He was brought up in Italy, the son of a p... READ MORE

Ellen Graham

House
A photographer all her life, Ellen Graham has met and photographed the beautiful people of the latter half of the twentieth century. How gorgeous they were. And so many of them!

Scott Salvator

House
Interior designer, Scott Salvator landed the tricky job of re-doing one of New York’s most beloved night spots, the Café Carlyle, and acquitted himself admirably in pulling off the feat of ‘bringing it into 2007 whilst maintaining 1955’, which was when it was added to the Carlyle Hotel was an intimate cabaret venue featuring legendary perf...

Hunt Slonem

House
Walking off the street at the blasted heath end of West 10th Street into Hunt Slonem’s studio space (if one can call 89 rooms a studio space) was a bit like that moment in The Wizard of Oz when Dorothy and the gang step into glorious Technicolor, and it’s slightly unsettling. Walking through each room is like […]... READ MORE
