"Completed in 1971, Berlin's ‘Gropiusstadt’ was set to be a grand experiment of creating social housing based on the modernist urban planning principles of its creators. A herculean intervention of grafting an alien organ into a living, breathing, divided city of the time. Featured in this illustration are those who shaped this reality - master architects Le Corbusier and Walter Gropius with Willy Brandt, former Chancellor and Mayor of Berlin between 1957-1966." -- Teaser of a recent project with @anglesberlin to explore the architectural roots of this city. Full story coming soon! #berlin #urbanplanning #urbandesign #modernism #modernist #architecture #comics #graphicnarratives #illustration #lecorbusier #waltergropius #willybrandt #westberlin #gdr #architecturalhistory

Who wouldn’t love ❤️ to own this Eileen Gray Transat chair. One of only 12 ever made, and 9 known to survive, this iconic piece of sculpture can be yours on the 20th when it goes on the block at @christiesinc Design Sale in New York. Originally designed for E1027, a villa in the South of France for architect Jean Badovici. In its original calfskin upholstery, ebonized & lacquered wood, and nickel-plated brass. Estimated at $1-1.5M it carries a hefty price tag yet, come on, it’s worth it. . . . #EileenGray, #christiesinc, #iconicdesign, #designclassic #transatchair, #e1027 #chair #chairenvy #chairdecor #christiesdesign #antiques #architecture #modernism #design #designer #designers #architecturelovers #interiordesign, #interiordesigner, #interiordesigners, # #interiordecor, #instadecor, #interior123, #interiors, #interior4all, #interiorlovers, #SFinteriordesigner, #sanfranciscodesign, #sanfranciscointeriordesigner #sagrerabrazildesign
