Luminaire is an innovative American design showroom, but more importantly an interactive design research center stimulating design education and inspiration to design aficionados and as such, are sponsors of BOOMSPDESIGN’s  premiere of “Still Movement,” an experimental video project, by Paul Clemence and Aksel Stasny, featuring photo stills of famous architecture of the planet collaged into one video. “Excerpts” of buildings by Sir Norman Foster, Coop Himmelbleau, Juergen Mayer H., Zaha Hadid, Frank Gehry, Diller Scofido + Renfro and Oscar Niemeyer orchestrate into one visual symphony set to a soundtrack by electronic audio artists Taylor Deupree and Stephan Mathieu.
“It is only natural to celebrate talented international architects, artists and designers via an arena that recognizes the mystique of contemporary design.
Paul Clemence, Chad Oppenheim and Arne Quinze are good friends and I have always supported their work,” states Nasir Kassamali, President of Luminaire.
With four locations in Miami, Chicago and globally online, the company is designed to stimulate the senses, as each space incorporates color, texture, space, light and sound, reflecting Luminaire’s unique holistic philosophy and reshaping of what a design store can be.
Luminaire showcases Europe’s top most prominent manufacturers of contemporary furniture, lighting and accessories and has been a pioneering force in the design world for over 37 years.

Rene Gonzalez, on “Blurring Boundaries,” August 9th pre-conference talk sponsored by Ornare.
“I think that Brazilian design is sensual, tactile, exuberant and never timid.”
                                                                                                        Rene Gonzalez quote
Ornare, the luxury wardrobe, home theatre and kitchen manufacturer since 1986, is for when boundaries are not blurred but set in elegant settings and compartments. Rene’s intriguing design for The Alchemist store (above) at 1111 Lincoln Road, blurs and renews meaning to “clothing store.”
These images of Rene Gonzalez’s Cisneros Fontanals Art Foundation project feel very GP to us.
 GP is also enamoured because of the recent post we wrote for Metropolis on Brazil’s most famous mosiacist, Paulo Werneck, making the genius of Oscar Niemeyer and modernist masters dance with his vibrancy of pointillism. Photography in article by Paul Clemence, Clemence of course!

In every amazing Amazonian project like this, there is a Big Cat behind the scenes. Thank you from Green Provocateur to Roberto Cocenza, Big Cat Curator and genius behind BOOMSPDESIGN, who we met at ICFF this past May. Rushing into the press room to meet Paul Clemence, I walked into a Brazilian confab between them that has us flying there to present just four months later. Oh, and if that were the only NEW NEWS from Green Provocateur! Alas, tis not! We are brewing several other veeeery interesting things. Peep this space!
