ONE ISSUE, TWO COVERS!
Fall into our autumn issue—on stands now! Keep your eye out for one of two covers above. That’s right, we created two versions this issue. On the left: a renovated mid-century modern ranch in Bow Mar. And on the right is one of two new offices for Workplace Resource, the largest Herman Miller dealer in Colorado. Our content covers quite a collection of creativity, from residential to commercial architecture, and fine art to street art. It’s only fitting, then, that this two of kind has one thing in common: great design on—and under—the covers. Inside, you’ll also find a profile of the creative duo behind design firm Consume & Create, mid-century advertising, a hidden gem of a museum in southern Colorado, a kitchen by Porsche Design Studio, commercial furniture, the lowdown on mattresses, a look at the architecture at the new Readiness Center, and much more! Pick up an issue at one of these 300+ retailers, and curl up with good design! Until then, have a peek inside:
Our roundup of new gadgets, modern accessories, and furniture for fall.
HIP TO BE SQUARE
The Graham family trades in a Bonnie Brae tudor for a disheveled Bowmar mid-century modern. But where most saw only neglect, this family glimpsed a challenge worthy of their full attention.
What do skateboarding, ‘90s hip hop, and creative entrepreneurship have in common? It turns out, the common thread of questioning convention and reinvention are exactly why Denver-based consume & create is succeeding as a client-centered design firm.
SHOW THEM WHAT YOU LOVE
When workplace resource outgrew its longtime LoDo footprint, it opted for two new facilities with entirely distinct purposes. But just how easy is it to design the perfect office environment for a company with an endless reservoir of the world’s best office furniture?
MID-MOD MAD MEN
Vintage mid-century advertising holds an artistic appeal all its own. In fact, some of the greatest furniture designers of the 20th century spent decades creating seminal magazine ads for their own products; have a peek at a few.
Fall is in the air, and itís time to break out the mugs. Never one to pass up a good pun, we lined up folks from Colorado’s creative community to pose for mugshots—holding our favorite coffee cups, of course.
READY, AIM, INSPIRED!
What do you get when you bring together the Colorado Army National Guard, the U.S. Air Force Academy, and an iconic mid-century architectural heritage? A curiously beautiful military installation. Roger that.
BIG ART, SMALL TOWN
They aren’t the first New York artists to head west in search of new opportunities. But Brendt Berger and Maria Cocciarelli-Berger took a bold leap when they moved to tiny Walsenburg, Colorado to launch a contemporary art museum.
Horsepower—it’s not the term youíd typically associate with a kitchen. But thanks to the collaboration between Porsche Design Studio and Poggenpohl, a sleek new kitchen at Studio 2B in Denver goes from zero to breakfast in three seconds flat.
WORK NEW / NEW WORK
While the open vs. closed office debate carries on, one thing’s for sure: there are certain office pieces that, well, work. Here, we curated a collection of what’s trending, what’s timeless, and what furniture is taking over offices today.
THE MATTRESS INDUSTRY, UNCOILED
What’s actually inside a mattress? What’s the deal with internet-based mattress startups? And why are mattresses so expensive? We set out to shed some transparency on an industry that has long been shrouded in secrecy.
The Platner Collection arrived in 1966 and has maintained remarkable relevance ever since. To celebrate 50 good years, Knoll is bringing the famed designer’s original vision to market—in a rich way.
