The design of the 1970s was distinguished by a strong confluence of creativity and functionalism in furnishing and decor. We already recognize many ’70s furniture designs as icons of mid-century modernism-and the proof is the prices they command at fine furniture auctions today.Bony examines the works of international designers whose creations exemplify this period, from the ergonomically-focused designers working in America to the pure design movement in Scandinavia and design innovators in Italy led by Archizoom, Alchymia, and Gaetano Pesce. This indispensable reference book chronicles the period’s interior design trends with over 200 photographs focusing on artistic and decorative innovations that created the first intelligent and informed design conversation between two continents.

Check out the TAU speakers; made from recycled cardboard and paper finished in epoxy, the exotic shapes are an exploratory exercise in finding the simplest shape to provide maximum audio fidelity. The result is an organic form suspended on rods designed to hide the cables. I applaud the designer for pushing the envelope to create speakers that audiophiles and designers alike can appreciate
Fiberglass Interior Design and Architecture: the Wolfgang Feierbach ‘Kunststoffhaus FG 2000″ was constructed in Altenstadt Germany in 1968-1970. This is one amazing prefab modular fiberglass house. This super groovy space age party house looks amazing. Very similar to the Verner Panton Visiona 2 expo from 1970. Most of the furniture was custom made by the architect designer Wolfgang Feierbach with some exceptions: the sofa and chairs in the living room were designed by Dieter Rams (620 series produced by Vitsoe), the bathroom furniture in red fiberglass was created by Rohm and Haas (it was in commercial production for a couple of years and was even sold in the USA). We believe the ceiling carpets were inspired by Verner Panton and produced by Mira-X.

Dieter Rams was born in Wiesbaden, Germany in 1932. In 1955 he began work at Braun, a company at which he became head of design in 1961, and at which he stayed until 1995. While there, he produced and oversaw some of the seminal products of the twentieth century, including radios, shavers and kitchen appliances. At the same time, he designed furniture for a small company, Vitsoe + Zapf (later Vitsoe), which is still in production today. In addition to his work as a designer and design manager, he is well known as a lecturer and for his ‘ten commandments’ of good design, which advocate innovative, useful and durable products.

Fallingwater or Kaufmann Residence is a house designed by American architect Frank Lloyd Wright in 1935 in rural southwestern Pennsylvania, 50 miles southeast of Pittsburgh. The home was built partly over a waterfall on Bear Run in the Mill Run section of Stewart Township, Fayette County, Pennsylvania, in the Laurel Highlands of the Allegheny Mountains.Hailed by Time shortly after its completion as Wright’s “most beautiful job”, it is also listed among Smithsonian’s Life List of 28 places “to visit before you die.” It was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1966. In 1991, members of the American Institute of Architects named the house the “best all-time work of American architecture” and in 2007, it was ranked twenty-ninth on the list of America’s Favorite Architecture according to the AIA.

Isamu Noguchi (野口 勇, Noguchi Isamu?, November 17, 1904 – December 30, 1988) was a prominent Japanese American artist and landscape architect whose artistic career spanned six decades, from the 1920s onward. Known for his sculpture and public works, Noguchi also designed stage sets for various Martha Graham productions, and several mass-produced lamps and furniture pieces, some of which are still manufactured and sold.In 1947 Noguchi began a collaboration with the Herman Miller company, when he joined with George Nelson, Paul László and Charles Eames to produce a catalog containing what is often considered to be the most influential body of modern furniture ever produced, including the iconic Noguchi table which remains in production today His work lives on around the world and at the Noguchi Museum in New York City.

Richard Estes (b. May 14, 1932, Kewanee, Illinois) is an American artist, best known for his photorealist paintings. The paintings generally consist of reflective, clean, and inanimate city and geometric landscapes. He is regarded as one of the founders of the international photo-realist movement of the late 1960s, with such painters as Ralph Goings, Chuck Close, and Duane Hanson. Author Graham Thompson wrote, “One demonstration of the way photography became assimilated into the art world is the success of photorealist painting in the late 1960s and early 1970s. It is also called super-realism or hyper-realism and painters like Richard Estes, Denis Peterson, Audrey Flack, and Chuck Close often worked from photographic stills to create paintings that appeared to be photographs.”
From J.A. Christensen’s website: “There are a number of different ways of making that interest me, but for the past five years or so I have been most intrigued by the way working class garments were manufactured between the 1870s and the 1930s. I specifically appreciate the way that some of that period’s clothing was made on single-needle sewing machines and have a great deal of affection for the garments produced by those machines. To me, the difference between the single-needle machine user and the specialized machine user is as simple as this: the single-needle machine needs an operator, the specialized machine needs a tender. This distinction between the machine operator and the machine tender is important to me, and frankly I prefer to be a machine operator.”
The Duesenberg SJ (a name never used by the company) is a car manufactured from 1932-1937 by Duesenberg in Indianapolis, Indiana. Only 36 were ever made. It was the supercharged version of the Duesenberg Model J, with 320 hp (239 kW). Special-bodied models, such as the later “Mormon Meteor” chassis, achieved an average speed of over 135 mph (217 km/h) and a one-hour average of over 152 mph (245 km/h) at Bonneville Salt Flats, Utah.

The wine is pearlescent – a pale, lustrous gold with a fine, lively mousse. The nose is complex yet ethereal.Wonderfully refined, it is intriguing and enticing, its minerality complemented by hints of white flowers, acacia and hawthorn. A salty note enhances aromas of bread crust, brioche and the merest hint of green apple and hazelnut.The palate is quintessentially pure, the very epitome of balance and restraint. Exuberant on entry, the mousse becomes more of a caress, while bubbles dance playfully on the palate. Elegance, finesse, bright vitality, depth and power allied with a lightness of touch—it is difficult to encapsulate so many complementary and contradictory elements coming together in harmony.Refined, feminine and seductive, voluptuous yet restrained, and superbly balanced, this vintage compares stylistically to the great 1988.According to Didier Depond, Director of the House of Champagne Salon, this singular wine should be served in a tulip-shaped glass rather than a narrow champagne flute. He says, “We have found that Salon can be drunk in the same way as a great wine. Due to the richness and complexity of its aromas and its exceptional, lingering finish, this style of glass allows the wine to breathe more freely.

Lady’s and gentlemen … It’s nerd time!!! I’ve been collecting vintage recording gear and analogue synthesizers since i was 13 and I’ve always loved stories on recording legendary albums. I’ve spent some time collecting info & quotes. This is the incomplete story of making the electronic side of Michael Jackson’s masterpiece. Hope u dig it:-) … And please add comments if you have additional info.
The “Human Nature” signature synth string part. That was Steve Porcaro’s track. He used a Yamaha CS-80 with glide (chromatic instead of portamento) at the head — it’s got that nice little CS fuzz around the sound. That fuzz was also part of a multi-layered sound I used for the four-chord basic string vamp on “Billie Jean” — Michael Jackson himself played that part on a CS-80 in one take. No punches. No repairs. No sequencers or time correction. Seven minutes. Perfect performance.We fattened the pad a little on the body, and the line that counters the vocal on the second half of the first “Human Nature” chorus is my sound playing a line written by Rod Temperton. The sound and part were later supplanted by background vocals, but the basic, main lines, solo and most layers are from Steve Porcaro — based on a demo he wrote when he was 17 years old! Funny story about the song “Human Nature”: David Paich (also of Toto) was in the spring of 1982 asked by Quincy Jones to write a few tunes for the new Michael Jackson album. He did, and sent the tapes to Quincy. Quincy liked what he heard, but didn’t really see the songs fitting in on that particular album. But when he thought one of the Paich tapes had stopped running, another song suddenly came on, and it was Steve Porcaro’s “Human Nature”. Paich, believing the tape to be blank, had recorded one of his songs on the same tape. Quincy immediately loved the melody of “Human Nature”, which was completely without lyrics and consisted only of a simple rhythm track, the CS-80 synth riff and Porcaro’s own voice humming the melody. That’s the story of how “Human Nature” ended up on “Thriller”. It was later covered by none other than Miles Davis on his “You’re Under Arrest” album.
(Roland Jupiter 8, they had three of these in the studio)
The big synth blasts that begin “Thriller.” A Roland Jupiter-8 in double four-voice mode, with the modulation “wheel” opening the filter. I was always afraid it sounded cheesy, but it’s withstood the test of time. There’s no shape to the sound, just a sort of fizz or buzz, until the hold where I close the filter. It was tracked multiple times with a slightly different timbre and tuning each time.
(NED Synclavier II)
The “Beat It” digital gong. Tom Bähler played a demo sound that came with his Synclavier — literally a factory patch, right out of the box. He had the good taste to discover and apply it in exactly the right place at the right time in musical history. Part of producer Quincy Jones’ production strategy was to assemble a team of people who were capable of writing, arranging, and producing records in their own right. Tom is a brilliant songwriter.
(Roland Jupiter 4)
(Roland MC-4 Microcomposer/Sequencer)
(Yamaha GS-1 FM synth)
(SCI Prophet 5, they had two of these in the studio)
The “P.Y.T.” synth noodle that answers the chorus vocal. That was a Roland Jupiter-6 “wang bar”-style pitch bend doubled with, and controlling, a Sequential Circuits Prophet-5, thus the sort of smear you can hear on the “wobble” between the top two notes. I recall the keyboards were set on the very top of a stand so they were practically at ear level!
(Yamaha CE20 FM preset synth)
Can anyone tell me which Yamaha Portasound Model was used on the “Thriller” album?
(Yamaha portasound keyboard)
(Roland VP-330 Vocoder/Strings)
P.Y.T. is a Bode vocoder with a Prophet 5 running through it and doubled with a VP-330.
(E-mu Emulator I)
“The lush pad on “P.Y.T.” (after Michael sings “I’ll take you there . . .”). It sounds multitracked, but really, it’s not. It’s a singletrack sample of Michael Jackson’s voice, done on an E-mu Emulator I — serial number 1, in fact! We then used this mode the Emulator had where you could sample the sound twice, then detune one of the voices while in “unison” mode. It was recorded with lots of top end added, and Bruce Swedien’s special reverb known as “spit.” Quincy Jones would say, “Sven, put some spit on it!”
(plus a couple of Minimoogs:-)
The synth basses on “Thriller,” “P.Y.T.,” and “Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin’.” Those were my two Richie Walbourn-modified Minimoogs, set side by side, with engineer Bruce Swedien’s special multiple-mono compression.
You can hear the LM-1 clearly on “Wanna Be Starting Something”.
(Linndrum’s were mostly doubled with a Roland TR-808 or acoustic drums)
The main comping sound of “Don’t Stop ’Til You Get Enough.” Andy Leeds owned an Eddy Reynolds-modified, flat-top Rhodes 88. This was the same Rhodes used by David Foster and David Paich on so many hit recordings of the ’80s. We put that through my Paul Rivera-modified Roland CE1 chorus. The key ingredient, though, was keyboardist Greg Phillinganes, whose pocket is deeper than the Mariana Trench.

Founded in 1955, Domaine Henri Milan is located near Avignon in St Remy de Provence, the location that Van Gogh depicted so well. In 1986, Henri took control of the estate with the ambition to make the best wine possible focused on environmental reverence. Inspired by the diversity of the soil from the Alpilles and his winemaking passion, he immediately converted to organic farming and has embraced biodynamic viticulture and vinification practices as means of improvement for wines and his quality of life. An art enthusiast, Henri commissions a different artist each vintage to design the label of the Clos Milan, his exceptional cuvée of old vine Grenache and Syrah grown on gravel, yellow sandstone with a similar structure to that of Château Rayas. Today, Henri is regarded as one of the top vignerons in the region and has significantly elevated this formerly sleepy terroir that once produced the wines for the Popes in residence. As the name of this cuvee aptly descibes, “sans souffre ajoute” is a vibrant grenache, syrah and cabernet sauvignon blend vinified without the addition of any sulfur dioxide. Vibrant and juicy, but oh so light on its feet, this artisanal red hails from one of the most picturesque corners of France.

In his magisterial Fine Bird Books, Sir Sacheverall Sitwell says of Audubon: ‘There is nothing in the world of fine books quite like the discovery of Audubon. The giant energy of the man, his power of achievement and accomplishment, give him something of the epical force of a Walt Whitman or a Herman Melville…Audubon is the greatest of bird Painters; he belongs to American history.’John James Audubon’s Birds of America, from which this selection has been taken, is the finest pictorial ornithological book ever produced. Unlike the drawings and paintings of his contemporaries, which were produced from prepared skins and zoo specimens, Audubon’s paintings are taken directly from his observations in the wild, and the richness and directness come straight from the real world. No wonder that Audubon became known in his lifetime as ‘The American Woodsman’.
Audubon was unable to raise sufficient financial backing in the United States and he sailed for England in 1826. In its original form, Birds of America contained 435 hand-colored, aquatinted plates which were completed between 1827 and 1838. It was printed in London and bound into four double elephant folio volumes (measuring approximately 30 X 27 inches (76 X 69 cm)) so that all the birds could be illustrated life-size. Between 175 and 200 sets were produced, and the last complete set to come to auction fetched nearly $3,000,000.
