Presented by Saatchi Art, The Other Art Fair returned to Santa Monica for its 10th Los Angeles edition from September 21st to 24th at Barker Hangar. The global art event, dedicated to showcasing emerging talent and unforgettable experiences, will feature 140 independent artists exhibiting thousands of original artworks across various media—including painting, photography, sculpture, drawing, fiber arts, ceramics, and more—priced between $100 and $10,000. Here were DNN’s editorial highlights
The CHAIRity event, the flagship fundraising initiative of The Green Chair Project, brought together an exceptional roster of talented designers who not only lent their talents to redesign chairs but also crafted enchanting room vignettes, inspiring attendees with their innovative designs.
CHESS is sponsored by Houlihan Lokey, Oracle Netsuite, CIT Commercial Services, Secured Finance Network, Krunchbox, AdAdvance and Monk Tree Partners. It will be held at the Hilton Rosemont/Chicago O’Hare. Again this year, CHESS will run concurrently with the International Business Council’s Global Forum, an annual meeting for a special interest group of IHA members dedicated to global marketing and sales. Attendees of both programs will be able to network during breaks and dinner, enhancing their interaction with colleagues.
Tomoko Imade Dyen’s tea omakase was detailed and intimate and elegant and while she is not a designer nor a potter, she became a “main character” that night in telling the “story” of OWIU Goods. Without characters helping tell the story and show how to use the products in new and interesting ways, you can limit growth and miss out on reaching potential consumers. Sometimes finding those characters is obvious. In this case, Tomoko is an expert in elevated culinary experiences, helping to market to those who appreciate them too and can use OWIU Goods to enhance their own everyday culinary experiences.
Houston designer Marie Flanigan notes of her fantastical and moody primary suite, “One of the luxuries of the Living by Design Showhouse is customizing even the smallest detail.” She chose a vintage hand-woven tapestry inset in architectural paneling that would have been a huge expense and undertaking in real life. But she notes, “these elevated finishes make the space feel beautiful, unique and lifelike.”
