In Pursuit of Design Alchemy: Glenn Gissler’s Brilliant New Blog

Late last year Designers Collaborative alum Glenn Gissler quietly launched blog.glenngissler.com. It has been going from strength to strength with any number of interesting, insightful posts, including A Visit with the Curator of Decorative Arts & Design at the RISD Museum of Art, Let’s Get Out of Town (about touring iconic designer Russel Wright’s beautiful estate, Manitoga, in the Hudson Valley), and our favorite, the one below, which features Glenn’s  gorgeous 1835 Greek Revival farmhouse in Litchfield County. We hope that, like us, you’ll become a regular reader of Glenn’s always lively and entertaining blog.

Laura Bohn Recieves a Pratt Institute 2014 Alumni Achievement Award

Pratt Institute 2014 Alumni Achievement Awards

Our congratulations go to Designers Collaborative cofounder Laura Bohn who last week received a Pratt Institute Alumni Achievement Award at a luncheon in New York City. The awards recognize outstanding Pratt graduates who have distinguished themselves in their fields, who have earned a high degree of respect among their colleagues and in the general community, and whose impact has been felt on a regional, national, or international level. Laura (B.F.A. Interior Design ’77) was the deserving recipient of the 2014 Distinguished Career Award for creating a body of work that resonates with Pratt’s values of aesthetic judgment, professional knowledge, collaborative skill, and technical expertise. Bravissima!
