"An 11-day celebration of mid-century modern design, architecture and culture. This design aesthetic, originated in the 1950s and 60s, was typified by clean, simple lines and celebrated elegant informality which came to define desert modernism."
This past weekend I was invited to the opening of Palm Springs Annual Modernism Week, an 11 day celebration of desert modernism. I snapped this photo during a 3 hour architectural bus tour of the city, showcasing homes by Lautner, Cody, Albert Frey, and others. 1st Dibs and Modernism Magazine hosted the opening night of the Modernism Sale, including Amsterdam Modern, Fat Chance, Reform, Converso, Downtown, and Objects USA to name a few. (Read a past interview with Objects USA here).
Thanks for the incredible weekend of design and events.
