Better late than never. I finally got around to realizing that the firm of Risley and Gould, and its principals (prior to launching the firm) designed a number of projects in San Diego. I just posted a draft page outlining what we know thus far HERE.

The good folks over at Objects USA have posted a number of exciting, new items for sale on their site. There are new pieces by Martha Longenecker, Sam Maloof, Barney Reid, John Dirks, Dick Seeger, and Bob Stocksdale on the site HERE.

The Museum of Craft and Design in San Francisco has just opened a new show, ‘Good Design: Stories from Herman Miller,’ that runs through September 22. The show explores the collaborative problem-solving design process employed at the world-renowned West Michigan-based furniture company, Herman Miller, Inc. and draws upon work from the Herman Miller Design Collection—a comprehensive archive of the company’s innovative processes and products—most of which had never before been on public view. The exhibition showcases the creation and evolution of pieces by Gilbert Rohde, Ray & Charles Eames, George Nelson, Isamu Noguchi, Alexander Girard and others. Learn more HERE.

Rupert Essinger, of Friends of San Diego Architecture, has posted two interesting maps of local pre-War architecture. Check out The Civic & Commercial Architecture of San Diego's Urban Core, 1880-1940 and The Residential Architecture of San Diego's Urban Core, 1885-1930.
