A few months ago I posted about the opening of the very exciting California Design Biennial, which I helped curate. Hard to believe, but weeks have evaporated and now the show is in its last week at the Pasadena Museum of California Art! How do these things happen?
Luckily you’ve got one last really great chance to see the show and hear from two of my favorite projects featured in the show. On Thursday, October 29 I’m moderating a panel featuring Stefan Bucher of 344 Design, designer of the excellent Time Travel Mart products at 826LA and Kim Karlsrud and Jenny Liang, designers with Project H Design who created the design enterprise project Abject Object with women at the Downtown Women’s Center.
Afterwards—and this part is really exciting—I’ll lead a walk to Intelligentsia Pasadena, the newest location of the legendary coffee house. We’ll be joined for a talk by Ana Henton and Gregory Williams of MASS, who designed the space using reclaimed materials and other sustainable touches. But that’s not all! We’ll be able to order some awesome eats by Heirloom LA as well as drinks, and yes, that’s of the alcoholic variety: They’ve just started serving a well-curated list of beer and wine, with wine chosen by Matthew Kaner, owner of my favorite neighborhood winebar, Bar Covell!

If you can’t make it to the panel at the PMCA, just join up at Intelligentsia. Hope to see you there!
