On the Road with Makeness

There are certain songs which, by no intent of their maker, seem perfectly tailored for a walk through New York City, headphones on and volume up, while the busy world blows past. From his stone-barn studio outside of Edinburgh, British songwriter and producer Kyle Molleson, otherwise known as Makeness, managed...

The Interrogator with Danielle Chenette

Artist and illustrator Danielle Chenette has described her work as a process of removal and reinvention. There are hints, sometimes, in her illustrations, which appear often in the New York Times Book Review and others, of the boxy figurativism of Schoolhouse Rock, the just-off-kilter palette of Dr. Seuss, various Disney...

In the Kitchen with Chef Brian Loiacono of Bistrot Leo

Henry Miller once remarked with disparaging warmth: “Hell is probably quite similar to most Paris bistros … a bit overheated, somewhat too crowded, and a little too noisy for my tastes. The waiters will surely treat you rudely and the cashiers will always add a few extra francs to...

The Interrogator with Shino Takeda

Ceramics, beyond simply offering utility, bring to mind humans at their most elemental.

The Interrogator with Daniela Jacobs

Not all senior thesis projects are quote unquote “successful” endeavors. Many are doomed, unfortunately, to become irrelevant hiccups over the course of a creative’s trajectory. But not so with Daniela Jacobs. From her start as a young Parson’s student, the designer has stood out from her peers, possessing an uncommon...

In the Studio with De JONG & Co.

The difference between good and great is often found in subtlety–those details so small they’re nearly imperceptible but inevitably felt, subconsciously or otherwise. Such is the case for De JONG & Co., where the precise slenderness of a serving platter or the clever tapering of a pepper mill makes...

In the Studio with Bower

Good luck placing a Bower piece within any particular era. The work of the Brooklyn-based design studio is immediately timeless, existing in the liminal space between past and future. Whether it be a mirror or a chair or a even a pen holder, the rules Bower play by are...

The Interrogator with Amber Vittoria

Amber Vittoria’s work can feel monstrous. Proportions are warped, inflamed, elongated. Her illustrated subjects are lent spikes, hair, and other typically untoward realities. Lips protrude, noses bulge. In their quote-unquote ugliness, Vittoria’s unique vision unfolds: a critique on physical identity, especially in regards to the ideal female form. It’s...
