Good recap of Milan by Alice Rawsthorn in the Times: half-way thru the article…“But the young Dutch designer Maarten Baas scored the marketing coup of the week with a less extravagant digital venture — an iPhone app based on his Real Time project, in which actors physically indicate the time in hours and minutes. By the end of the fair’s first day, the streets were papered with fly posters advertising “The newest Maarten Baas for only 99 cents.” Maarten’s Real Time is an ongoing project that caused it’s first sensation a year ago in Milan with the unveiling of the first edition of the Real Time Grandfather clock, now included in three museum collections and the first two editions completely sold out.

moss bureau blog is the covert gateway to the inner world of Moss Bureau. Behind the scenes, through the looking glass, up the down staircase, over the rainbow, all around the town. Our town. Our Town. We cover the bureau-front, from top to topless, stem to stern, sea to shining see. We open drawers and draw our own conclusions. The designers, the artists, the interns, friends and foes, clients and miscreants, consultants and co-defendants, the Fairs and the unfair, the good fight and the bad lieutenant, lies, truths, massive cover-ups, mitigating circumstances, plausible deniabilities. The undercooked and the overlooked. Wet-work, dry wall, the dog, the pony, the smoke and the mirrors. We look down the barrel, pull the trigger, and face the music. Fearless, feckless, and born to run. Sometimes a cigar really is just a cigar. Think different. It’s later than you think.
