Alissa Walker, Marissa Gluck, Erin Cullerton and I were interviewed earlier this week by KCRW’s Frances Anderton for the last Design and Architecture show of the year. As founders of de LaB, we were asked to give our top picks for great LA-Made design gifts. From books to garbage cans, DIY laser cutting to miniature air plant sculptures, our selections ran the gamut. Frances caught up with us at the de LaB Holiday Party hosted at LACMAfollowing a viewing of the current California Design 1935-1960 “Living in a Modern Way” exhibit and we all crammed into my car in the parking garage for the interview, but only after we grabbed a glass of wine at Stark Bar. All I can say is that it’s way easier to be on the back side of the mic than it is to be in front of it!
If you missed it, catch it again here. Click to listen or just check out the links to all the amazing places and people mentioned on the show.
I still can’t believe we were on the same show as Jonathan Adler. What an honor and such a great way to end an amazing year. Hats off to all the creative people that make our LA design community so vibrant and always surprising.
