Elle Decor × Suzanne Dimma

KO Média is excited to unveil the Fall issue of ELLE Decoration Canada, featuring a glimpse of designer Suzanne Dimma’s eco-conscious cottage in Ontario’s Haliburton County. Accessible by water, Dimma’s refuge in the wild is a warm, uncomplicated, relaxed cocoon where nature is the main source of inspiration. “Creating a connection, a conversation with one’s surroundings, is of the utmost importance,” says the designer. With a focus on wood in all its glory, plus a palette of stone greys and sky blues, Dimma honors the notion of the summer cabin—once the final resting place of that old family sofa—into a new, stylish, year-round living space.           

The Fall issue will also introduce readers to another great lover of nature, architect Maxime Frappier, who has rooted his family life in a minimalist glass home amid the forests of Lanaudière, Quebec. Further afield, in the outskirts of Milan, Dutch architect Geert Koster demonstrates how to combine solitude with socializing in a contemporary, sustainable home inspired by the region’s traditional stables. Also in Italy, artist and sculptor Othmar Prenner has crafted an Alpine cabin in the Lunga Valley whose unique design features have got to be seen to be believed.

In keeping with the theme of nature, this issue is an ode to wood in décor, art and home life. We deep-dive into West Coast sculptor Neshka Krusche, who gathers, cinges and shapes cedar logs to make stunning eco-driven art. Readers with kids will also enjoy our list of the latest, greatest and most handsome wooden toys, guaranteed to add natural flair to their rumpus rooms. We also discover a game-changing 1952 design with a spotlight on Danish designer Arne Jacobson’s Ant chair.                             

Finally, in décor we turn to two Canadian gallerists for tips on purchasing (and displaying) art, share our latest favourite Canadian lighting designs and catch up with experts in the carpet industry to get their opinions on the season’s most exciting underfoot looks. We also explore a new kind of online space for vintage design collecting.

The Fall issue of ELLE Decoration Canada will hit stands and Apple News+ on September 26, 2022. 

NEW ARC OF THOR by Blackwood, Anthony via 360 Magazine

THE NEW ARC OF THOR

THE NEW ARC OF THOR SHEDS LIGHT ON THANOS’ DARK HISTORY WITH ASGARD!

Guest writer Torunn Grønbekk and returning artist Nic Klein kick off “The Legacy of Thanos” in THOR #29, on sale in December.

In the opening arc of Donny Cates and Nic Klein’s hit run of THOR, fans witnessed a disturbing vision of the Mad Titan Thanos laying waste to the Marvel Universe! Since then, Thor has done everything in his power to prevent this future from coming to pass, but has it been enough? Find out as this brewing plot comes to the forefront in a brand new arc starting December titled “The Legacy of Thanos.” The arc will be penned by guest writer Torunn Grønbekk who will join returning series artist and newly christened Stormbreaker Nic Klein for an adventure starring Thor and the Valkyrie Rúna. The arc will spin directly out of THANOS: DEATH NOTES, the oversized Thanos one-shot hitting stands in November, and it will serve as a pivotal prelude to Cates and Klein’s future plans for Thanos’ upcoming conquest.

When a universally loathed foe kidnaps Thor’s baby sister Laussa and drags her so deep beyond Hel that not even Sif’s All-Sight can see her, the God of Thunder must call upon the one ally who has traveled so far into the unknown before: Rúna. But what dark secrets of Asgard’s bloody past lay beneath the frozen waters?

“There is something incredibly inventive and bold about Donny and Nic’s Thor, and it’s been an absolute delight to guest-write a story for this run,” Grønbekk said. “It’s turning out to be just the kind of thing I love – big swings, solid character moments and deeply human solutions. Also, Nic is impossibly good. There is a special kind of joy to see his pages come together. I don’t think I’ve ever had this much fun making comics!”

Check out the cover below and pick up the start of this thrilling new arc of THOR on December 7!

LQQK Studio × Reebok

Today, design collective LQQK Studio and Reebok have unveiled their first official collaboration featuring two iterations (GY7109/GY7110, $120) of the iconic Classic Leather. Available in unisex sizing, both pairs launch September 16 exclusively from LQQKSTUDIO.COM, followed by a September 21 global release for the “green camo” colorway (GY7110) from Reebok.com and select retailers. LQQK invites consumers to 109 Montrose Ave., Brooklyn, N.Y. for a special event Friday, September 16 through Monday September 19, 12:00pm EST – 7:00pm EST, where they’ll have early access to the LQQK-exclusive Classic Leather (GY7109) colorway, with complimentary food, beverage, and promo apparel to be provided.

Brooklyn-based screen printer and design collective LQQK Studio has put its own creative spin on Reebok’s most well-known silhouette, the Classic Leather, resulting in printing-inspired shoe that people of all backgrounds can connect to, while encouraging creativity and evolution.

“Reebok is a classic brand that holds a special place in a lot of people’s hearts,” commented LQQK Studio Founder Alex Dondero. “I think streetwear functions in a funny way that creates a uniform that people subconsciously fall into, so it’s important to constantly evolve, and Reebok is willing to embrace that.”  

Reflecting the studio’s deep roots in street culture, art, and fashion, LQQK’s Classic Leather offers a leaf-printed camouflage design over a white gum outsole. The first pair arrives in ‘bubble gum’ and ‘pine green’, with the latter done in ‘wild brown’ and ‘bright ochre’, with both featuring detailed LQQK branding at the tongue, window box, and heel.

“When we designed this shoe, we wanted a printed pattern to be the main focus,” continued Dondero. “We didn’t want to make a white shoe that doesn’t push the envelope. That’s how we came up with this wild printed pattern shoe… The Printer’s Shoe!”

Product photography (HERE) showcases LQQK’s favorite screen printers in action: “We visited Brooklyn’s Pegasus Prints (@pegasus_prints) and Baltimore’s Carpet Company (@carpetcompany),” added Dondero. “These two print shops fully embody what it means to be hands-on printmakers, and both produce incredible work!” 

The LQQK Studio x Reebok Classic Leather capsule drops September 16 exclusively from LQQKSTUDIO.COM and the Brooklyn, N.Y. launch event,  followed by a September 21 global release for the “green camo” colorway (GY7110) from Reebok.com and select retailers.

Louis Vuitton Twenty Tambour inside 360 MAGAZINE

Louis Vuitton Tambour Twenty

Join us in commemorating Louis Vuitton’s storied history in watchmaking. The Maison’s Tambour Twenty celebration honors two decades of success with the Tambour watch, as highlighted by 24 of Louis Vuitton’s timepiece creations.

In 2002, the Maison unveiled a watch like none other: the Tambour. Bold and innovative, it was recognisable at a glance with its unprecedented shape, its round case sculpted from a block of metal, and its signature applied horns. This launch opened up the doors to the closed world of watchmaking for Louis Vuitton. Having become a symbol of Louis Vuitton’s watch collection over the years, the Tambour has seen different expressions over time, all the while staying true to the Maison’s DNA: a devotion to the art of travel, technological innovation, and exceptional craftsmanship.

Joseph Lee GR gallery exhibition via 360 magazine

Joseph Lee Exhibit

GR gallery is pleased to present ‘Passive. Aggression,’ an exhibition of new paintings by self-taught artist Joseph Lee.

This marks the first solo show of Lee with the gallery after former collaborations, and chiefly the artist’s first public presentation in nearly 3 years. A total of 19 artworks, in various dimensions, executed with his signature technique, will be exhibited for the first time, recording Lee’s fundamental production over last few years in an essentially anthological exhibition.

His highly unique style exposes abstracted portraits that disclose impressions of anatomic details hidden between extra textured layers of paint that contrast with a flat and mostly monochromatic background. 

Opening reception:

Thursday September 8th, 6:00pm – 8:30pm ET (Exhibition Dates: September 09 – October 1st , 2022). Members of the press can contact GR gallery in advance to schedule a private viewing and/or an interview with the artist before the exhibition is officially open.
Joseph Lee will attend the opening event. Visitors who want to attend the opening can RSVP by contacting the gallery.

‘Passive. Aggression’ documents Lee’s time during 2020 – 2022. As his daily distractions dissipated under lockdown, he was forced to examine gaps, namely his liminality and inability to verbally communicate emotions, which made him unrecognizable to himself and others around him. Lee is both Korean and American, husband and son, actor and painter, passive and aggressive. Lee’s subject matters grapple with the way his liminality and thus, lack of a solid identity, began to impact the world he inhabited. The artist’s first instinct under duress was to isolate and paint.  During these years, the process of creating the works showcased in ‘Passive. Aggression’ was a salve. To finish a painting was not the intent. These works capture moments in Lee’s life where he deflected to his studio in fear and uncertainty. At the time of inception, these paintings were the best representations of what words escaped him, to convey – in composition – what he was unable to articulate. They are a line of expression uninterrupted. ‘Passive. Aggression’ is a collection of the artist’s self-reflections, love letters, & apologies translated onto canvas.

Joseph Lee is an artist who has spent years studying faces and the emotion that inhabits them. The beauty in Lee’s work stems from the manipulation of common everyday forms, such as faces or objects, into an array of energetic and forceful expressions. Each segmented brush stroke and application of color converge into a balanced whole.

His work focuses on the parallel between external reality and internal process. Each painting expresses a sense of physical harmony by layering of palette and brush strokes to create a complete and powerful gestural composition. This emphasis on the physicality of paint and stroke, color and volume, creates a unique tension within Lee’s dynamic paintings. The surface presence and confidence in each painterly stroke creates a uniquely uncompromising seductive experience for the viewer through the use of paint. In the age of swiping through social media images, these portraits force viewers to stop, inspect the physical craftsmanship and raw nature of these paintings. 

Today, Lee continues creating work to examine the psychology of beings behind their “societal masks.” His portraits channel various observations ranging from pop culture references to the daily people he encounters on the street. In addition to various gallery exhibitions all over the world, Lee has been commissioned by brands such as NIKE & Floyd Mayweather’s TMT for various projects. He has exhibited and sold to major art dealers and collectors in numerous art fairs.

Guggenheim Museum Bilbao

449,477 people visited the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao between June and August in what was the best summer in its history

Summer 2022 was the Museum’s most successful since it opened, with a total of 449,477 visitors, attesting to the Museum’s recovery in the wake of the pandemic, in the year of its 25th anniversary. August was the standout month, with 195,411 people and a daily average of 6,297 visitors, surpassing by 7.4% (13,406 people) what had been the best August to date, that of 2018, with 182,005 visitors.

In turn, the months of June and July, with 106,136 and 147,930 visitors respectively, were the second best in the Museum’s history, after 2018. The summer week with the most visitors was from August 8 to 14, with 50,434 people, although the day with the highest numbers was Thursday August 18, with 8,800 visitors.

In terms of geographical origin, 65% of summer visitors came from outside of Spain (similar to the years prior to the pandemic), with large numbers of French visitors, who account for 18% of the total, followed by people from Germany (7%), the Netherlands (7%), the United Kingdom (6%) and Italy (5%).

Ten per cent of the total number of summer visitors were from the Basque Country, thus confirming the success of the exhibition Motion. Autos, Art, Architecture among local residents, followed by those from Catalonia (5%) and Madrid (5%).

As of August 31, the cumulative number of 776,752 visitors constitutes 3% less than the same period in 2019 and 7% less than in 2018, due to the lower number of visitors during the first few months of the year.

Motion

One of the key reasons for the strong summer season was, without a doubt, the opportunity to enjoy Motion. Autos, Art, Architecture, an exhibition exploring the artistic dimension of the automobile, which ends on September 18. Due to the great success of the exhibition sponsored by Iberdrola and the Volkswagen Group, the Museum decided several weeks ago to extend its opening hours so that people who have not yet been able to visit or who wish to enjoy the experience all over again can do so between 9 am and 8 pm on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Sundays, and from 9 am to 9 pm on Fridays and Saturdays.
