Helvetica, perhaps the most ubiquitous typeface in human history, was created as a completely neutral expression of the Modernist movement. In that spirit, we present Helvetica The Perfume, a scent distilled down to only the purest and most essential elements. Offered boxed, in a numbered edition of 3000 pieces. 24K gold printing on bottle. Contains two ounces of distilled water.
He said yes. She said no. In between was nothingness.
For those who dare to be the same.
Who knew there was a rather great train station in Poughkeepsie? Also, who knew Stone Ridge was a 45 minute drive from that station? And who knew a Barnyard Picnic would end up actually being inside the barn because of the weather? There’s so much one learns when one leaves Manhattan. Click on the flag to go shopping at mossPop for items that will make your picnic a delight, no matter whose barn you’re in.

There are people out there who believe that Bert and Ernie were inspired by certain founders of Moss Bureau. Those people are mistaken. But there is a long ago connection to Sesame, and great affection for old B and E, and this New Yorker cover is just about as sweet as anything gets these days.
In the Design Miami/Design Log, Murray finds something else he loves at the fair in Basel. Click on the chair for the full post.
There’s a big 3-D printing conference in Pittsburgh (called RAPID 2013) coming up and Murray has curated an installation for Materialise Belgium which will be the Conference opening night event. It’s at the Andy Warhol Museum and you can’t go. Because it’s only for Conference attendees. Sorry. It’s really really too bad you can’t go because it’s going to be groundbreaking and very cool. For instance, this red bust is of London milliner extraordinaire Stephen Jones, and it’s one of four, different colors, one for each of four continents, and it’s an example of how amazing the resolution of 3-D printing can be now. And look at the pedestal–this is the first time one has been printed without internal support. You probably don’t know why this is such an innovation, but then, what do you know? You can’t even go to the installation. Click here for more info on the installation and RAPID 2013. Click the photo, then enlarge to see how unbelievable the resolution can be now.

They’re nice enough, I suppose, for paint on canvas. And naked is always good, of course, though doesn’t it sort of cheapen the whole effort? I don’t know. I guess I was expecting more.
Well, now we’re cooking. Do you know how hard it is to get aluminum to do this? It’s practically impossible. This is what you want dancers to be. Graceful, elegant, oversized, empty, and able to cut you if you get too close.
This vote isn’t even close.

It’s safe to say you have seen NOTHING like this. Even at the famous fabulous fucking FRIEZE. Next reception: a Matinee on Tuesday May 14 3pm to 5pm. Don’t be the only one not to have seen it. You know how you get.

Three (count’em) three artist receptions: Saturday (11th), 6 to 8, Tuesday (14th) 3 to 5, Friday (17th) 6 to 8. Come meet the Danseurs. And just to clarify, there is NO PERFORMANCE. This is an installation. A wonderful installation. If we say so ourselves.
Ah, yes, the Danseurs installation is going swimmingly. No problems at all.
