Designer Tony Duquette’s legendary Dawnridge, located in Beverly Hills, is one of the most creatively designed private homes in America. Built in 1949 by Duquette and his wife, Elizabeth, the original structure was a modest 30 x 30 foot box. Hutton Wilkinson purchased the home following Duquette’s death in 1999, and he has since breathed new life into the estate, broadening the property, adding houses of his own design, and incorporating remarkable objects designed and created by the Duquettes. Written by Wilkinson, Tony Duquette’s Dawnridge chronicles the luxe and historic home’s transformation. The book is organized by the three main houses, and Wilkinson elaborates on the spectacular design elements in each room and shares the stories behind the spaces. Tim Street-Porter’s photographs show both the original and redesigned rooms.

A designer with an atypical background, Patrick Norguet has a privileged relationship with both the production tool and the beauty of shapes. Harnessing his sense of colors, formal reserve, elegant purity, and steadfast quest for comfort, his work is the direct legacy of the canons of Nordic design, challenged by a fair dose of humor that embodies the object.His career took a lasting turn in 2000 when Giulio Cappellini noticed his famous Rainbow Chair, which is now featured in the collection of the MOMA in New York. Since then, he has been drawing for major designers such as Capellini, Poltrona Frau, Cassina, Tacchini, Hermes, Tolix, Artifort, Pedrali, and Ethimo. “Whom for? What for? How?” By answering these essential questions, Norguet humbly assumes the defining role of the industrial designer, nourished by a practice he experiences as an exploration of different forms of company cultures. “Without going as far as to imply that my work is political, my ultimate goal remains the creation of a product that functions. A fair, honest product in line with the sociology of its era.” Norguet primarily sees design as a collective and innovative approach in which his assembled creations become alive. Today, he shares the birth of 60 of his creations in a radically magnificent book. A work designed as an original photographic work, a poetic and dreamlike storyboard which, chapter after chapter, questions the relationship between the table of laws and the semantics of the object world. From its creation process to its aesthetical acme, the object takes shape, embodying multiple scenarios in the course of a vibrant visual epic, witnessing to all its possible interpretations and lives.
