    Van Cleef & Arpels commissioned Tsang Seymour to develop an invite suite for The Mirror Ball, a gala benefiting the Wolfsonian FIU in Miami. Tsang Seymour's creative direction was inspired by live performances by Nick Cave and Vanessa Beecroft and decor design by curator Neville Wakefield. The raw, untamed nature of the forest is placed in contrast to the modern white and reflective surfaces of contemporary culture. At the end of the evening, guests were served a gift box containing a blank ball mask with an invitation to reflect what inspires them. Overall, the invitation and the guest gift were created to engage the Van Cleef & Arpels/Wolfsonian audiences through design.

    • Micky Wolfson Interview Excerpt

      We interviewed Micky Wolfson amidst his decorative arts collection -- ranging from propaganda to industrial and graphic design in the 1885–1945 period. It is like sitting in history. At every corner there is an artifact that demands your attention. Micky Wolfson is a collector. He focuses on objects, not their context. He leaves that to the curators and historians who interpret, as he says, "with a point of view." This is a short bite from his far longer reminiscences. Specifically, he talks about his view of the objects he has collected and their meaning. If you haven't visited his collection at the Wolfsonian on Miami Beach, you're missing out. We interviewed Wolfson as part of the Miami Beach Visual Memoirs project, in partnership with the Miami Design Preservation League with funding from the Miami Beach Visitors and Convention Authority.
