Giant Pink Flamingo x 2, at the MFA shop in Houston

FlamingogoThere’s no business like the pink flamingo business, especially at the Moss Bureau enhanced shop at the Museum of Fine Arts Houston. These babies get a lot of attention. No surprise, really. Just the thing to be riding around your pool on these hot hot summer days. Giddy up, Divine! Eat your heart out, John Waters.

Zaha Hadid dies at 65

zahaHer death today was absolutely shocking. I think it’s because Zaha was always so amazingly powerfully THERE. She was a life force. She was brilliant and she was mean. A life of fighting for position took its toll. She was not nice. In fact, she was horrible. Look at that face. But you could not resist her and you could not ignore her astounding work. We will miss all aspects of this giant relentless breathtaking woman. Click on her photo above to go to a tribute today in the Guardian, a list with photos of her ten most extraordinary buildings.  And click on the photo below to go to a great interview with her in an amazing magazine called UNCUBED. It’s where both of these photos are from.

RIP, Richard Sapper, father of the Tizio

sapperRichard Sapper designed one of the most popular lamps of all time, the Tizio. That’s it on the upper left of the photo above. Which was taken at Moss, by the way. Just saying. Sapper also designed a nearly as popular espresso maker for Alessi, the 9090, and later an electric version, which is also on the wall, just above his right arm. He also designed the IBM Thinkpad and famously said no to Steve Jobs who wanted him to come to Apple. Click on the photo to go the Times obit. RIP, sir.

Rizzoli’s beautiful new store has launch party

IMG_1366It was craziness last night at Broadway and 25th Street, the location of the new Rizzoli store. Okay, okay, maybe the store’s not quite finished but they had a launch party scheduled so launch they did. Thousands of New York book lovers showed up and lined up to get in. Once inside, you saw the excellent and gorgeous Fornasetti wallpaper, had a glass of wine, if you could make it to the bar, and got to hear Diane von Furstenberg and Rizzoli publisher Charles Miers wish you a warm [no air conditioning as yet] welcome. That’s them below. IMG_1363

Moss Bureau dumps Trump

trumpJoining our friend the great chef Jose Andres, and Macy’s. NBC, the PGA, Perfumania, and of course the entire country of Mexico, Moss Bureau is firing Donald Trump for his unbridled racism and for being a hopeless clown and blight on humanity, and a pig. We know you were about to ask us to open stores in all your crummy condo buildings, so before you do, Donald, don’t bother.

Deep in the heat of Texas

HOUSTONMoss Bureau was down in Houston last week, working our magic at the MFAH store, and in general trying to keep cool. Houston in the summer. Not so recommended for the old, or the young, or the living. But the MFAH is a great museum and they have excellent air conditioning. In case you were wondering, this is the hotel limo. Seriously. And Zaza is the name of the hotel, not the longhorn, which appears to have been hit by the limo earlier in the week.
