Just like to share with you, that on January 29 th I went to PDC in Los Angeles for a Designer Lecture and book signing. The guest speaker was Designer Juan Montoya , "He is voted as one of the AD100 top designers, Colombian-born, Juan Montoya is known for pairing his heirloom antiques with sleek modern surfaces and elegant finishes. His passion for sculptural forms draws him to influences as diverse as Louis Kahn, Swedish architect Erik Gunnar Asplund and artist Eva Hild. Many of his favorite interiors of the last 30 years are collected in a new monograph; this lavishly illustrated book, "Juan Montoya",looks at this award-winning and cutting edge designer whose work constantly influences contemporary interior design."
And I can say that it influences me to strive to become a better designer and more professional practitioner.
The book is fantastic as a coffee table book or just as inspiration to design.
