Renowned interior designer Eric Cohler infuses traditional forms with the unexpected. He has been dubbed "The Mixmaster" by shelter magazine editors for his ability to seamlessly blend high-and low-end pieces to create classic spaces that are fresh and comfortable without being complicated. This volume, inspired loosely by the perennial classic Billy Baldwin Decorates, gives readers dozens of examples of well-appointed, luscious rooms while pointing out to them in a lively, engaging, and--most importantly--encouraging way tips to try at home. Eric Cohler is able to juxtapose his extensive classical education in art and architecture with a desire to create modern spaces that transcend trend. The volume will be illustrated with 160 images of his own work, and each image of a finished room will be presented not as merely aspirational, but as a real example of a design tip or trick that readers should try at home. Approximately 50 inspirational images drawn from the work of famous interior designers of the past, works of art, fashion, and travel shots taken by Cohler himself will also be included in order to get readers thinking about the things that inspire them, and to show how including elements of these in their own homes make for the most satisfying interiors. He teaches readers to "see" and identify whether an object--of any price--has inherent value. Cohler truly seeks to create a volume that is a primer on how to live well through the power of passion. Cohler's ability to connect with the reader stems directly from his frequent lectures to design-enthusiast audiences across the country. In November 2010, he was appointed the Ambassador of Creativity and Spirituality to the G20 summit in Seoul, South Korea, where he spoke to world leaders about the need to continue funding for the arts worldwide.

"Contemporary Exhibit Design No. 2 features over 80 unique and diverse exhibits brought to life in over 250 beautifully-reproduced color photos. These exhibits reflect the best work of top exhibit designers. Many are prize-winning exhibits selected from trade show venues from across the U.S. and around the world." "The book is organized by exhibit square footage commencing with 300 sq. ft and graduating up to 45,000 sq. ft. The exhibits are represent a plethora of industries running the gamut of clothing, sporting goods, automobiles, computers and electronics, home and building supplies, entertainment, insurance, banking, and many others." "Whenever possible, exteriors and interiors are presented to ensure the reader appreciates the design and space utilization ... and can see how these specialized designers have used signage, color, lights, animation and decorative props to make their exhibits "shopper-stoppers" in the world of Show and Sell." "Also included is a section on exhibits that appear in museums and corporate offices/headquarters where the main thrust is not to "sell" a product but to provide information, knowledge or background material that will eventually lead tobetter brand acceptance. Showcased are installations in museums, corporate offices, and "good will" examples by company's taking advantage of some moment in time or local event."--BOOK JACKET.

Imagining Consumers

Originally published in 1999. Imagining Consumers tells for the first time the story of American consumer society from the perspective of mass-market manufacturers and retailers. It relates the trials and tribulations of china and glassware producers in their contest for the hearts of the working- and middle-class women who made up more than eighty percent of those buying mass-manufactured goods by the 1920s. Based on extensive research in untapped corporate archives, Imagining Consumers supplies a fresh appraisal of the history of American business, culture, and consumerism. Case studies illuminate decision making in key firms—including the Homer Laughlin China Company, the Kohler Company, and Corning Glass Works—and consider the design and development of ubiquitous lines such as Fiesta tableware and Pyrex Ovenware.

In 1988, the news of Egmont Köhler's untimely death at the age of 55 reached his friends and colleagues. It was widely felt that a lasting memorial tribute should be organized. The result is the present volume, containing forty-two articles, mostly in combinatorial design theory and graph theory, and all in memory of Egmont Köhler. Designs and graphs were his areas of particular interest; he will long be remembered for his research on cyclic designs, Skolem sequences, t-designs and the Oberwolfach problem. Professors Lenz and Ringel give a detailed appreciation of Köhler's research in the first article of this volume. There is, however, one aspect of Egmont Köhler's biography that merits special attention. Before taking up the study of mathematics at the age of 31, he had completed training as a musician (studying both composition and violoncello at the Musikhochschule in Berlin), and worked as a cellist in a symphony orchestra for some years. This accounts for his interest in the combinatorial aspects of music. His work and lectures in this direction had begun to attract the interest of many musicians, and he had commenced work on a book on mathematical aspects of musical theory. It is tragic indeed that his early death prevented the completion of his work; the surviving paper on the classification and complexity of chords indicates the loss that his death meant to the area, as he was almost uniquely qualified to bring mathematics and music together, being a professional in both fields.

Although highly ambitious and sophisticated, most attempts at using robotic processes in architecture remain the exception; little more than prototypes or even failures at a larger scale. This is because the general approach is either to automate existing manual processes or the complete construction process. However, the real potential of robots remains unexploited if used merely for the execution of highly repetitive mass-fabrication processes: their capability for serial production of non-standard elements as well as for varied construction processes is mostly wasted. In order to scale up and advance the application of robotics, for both prefabrication and on-site construction, there needs to be an understanding of the different capabilities, and these should be considered right from the start of the design and planning process. This issue of AD showcases the findings of the Architecture and Digital Fabrication research module at the ETH Zurich Future Cities Laboratory in Singapore, directed by Fabio Gramazio and Matthias Kohler, which explores the possibilities of robotic construction processes for architecture and their large-scale application to the design and construction of high-rise buildings. Together with other contributors, they also look at the far-reaching transformations starting to occur within automated fabrication: in terms of liberation of labour, entrepreneurship, the changing shape of building sites, in-situ fabrication and, most significantly, design. Contributors: Thomas Bock, Jelle Feringa, Philippe Morel, Neri Oxman, Antoine Picon and François Roche. ETH Zurich contributors: Michael Budig, Norman Hack, Willi Lauer and Jason Lim and Raffael Petrovic (Future Cities Laboratory), Volker Helm, Silke Langenberg and Jan Willmann. Featured entrepreneurs: Greyshed, Machineous, Odico Formwork Robotics, RoboFold and ROB Technologies.

A building's entire life cycle aooOCU1/4oOe1/4o from construction through occupation, cycles of renovation and repairs, up to demolition and disposal, impacts the flow of materials thereby created. The decisive path of a building's environmental impact is however usually set early in the planning phase, at a time when planners often still lack knowledge about the sustainability characteristics of different building materials and constructions."
