A mash-up guide to modern life with a space experience as a language: Roman & Williams GUILD

By

Tired of the concept store that is like copying and pasting, the more and more similar space and style; when you walk in the mall or the street, full of minimalist or industrial style, selling similar styles and choices, gradually can not tell For each brand, "What is the taste of a store?" - Asking, thinking about the existence and necessity of physical stores in the Internet age. This kind of questioning is not only in the minds of consumers and me, but also Robin Standefer and Stephen Alesch, two heads of New York architecture/interior design team Roman and Williams, who have repeatedly asked themselves in recent years. At the end of last year (2017), the couple's "Roman & Williams GUILD" opened in Soho, New York, may be seen as a response and reflection on this question. With more than 7,000 square feet of GUIDE, it's not hard to imagine the difficulty of managing a large space; Robin and Stephen combine multi-dimensional logic to house furniture boutiques, restaurants, flower shops and the Phaidon Art Library. The details of the objects, from exquisite glassware, modern furniture, antique treasures to food utensils, even without a specific style of mix and match, it is not difficult to see the two people's vision of a better life. "I like the words and thoughts of dialogue between objects; that is the language that enhances our day-to-day life and shapes a story for these pieces... When I put it into it, I don't even know "design" What is it, but the connection between them. It is the symphony of everything in a space, like a symphony." - Robin Standefer starts with architecture and space, Robin and Stephen lead Roman and Williams, It has long been a well-known design team in New York; from the hotel Ace New York, South Africa Island GREYDON HOUSE, New York famous restaurants Lafayette and Le Coucou, the two ingeniously blend the history and modern beauty of the building itself, in restaurants, restaurants and product design In terms of consistency, we have consistently found a balance between rigor and rebellion, the past and the future, won many awards and received international attention, laying a solid foundation.

Naughty mocking of the Prohibition Order: New York Secret Bar Raines Law Room

By

Staring at the bustling and bleak daily street scenes of New York City, the focus is on the rushing and rushing of the habitat - just as you have heard or imagined. A city with such a fast pace of life shows a rare moment of silence as night falls. When I come to New York, if we don't want to be rejected by her pride, we have to open the mysterious and colorful veil to see the "other self" that the city has carefully protected; for example, in the Belle Époque, due to the prohibition of alcohol The underground bar form of birth - Speakeasy. After the turbulent and conflicting social changes of the last three decades of the 19th century, the American spirit and material life became rich afterwards. The emergence of new trends of thought and the leap of quality of life have touched the ring, and the social problems behind prosperity have also emerged - "the wine" and its derivative troubles are one or two. In particular, after the polarization between the rich and the poor intensified, the production and consumption of alcohol not only became an indispensable role for both ends of the class, but also increased in number; the issue of prohibition of alcohol changed from state to the federation, and later it was more social, political, religious, etc. The factors of each position, the more and more issues, let the problem no longer simply focus on the pros and cons of alcohol. Then, on January 17, 1920, the Prohibition Act was incorporated into the US Constitution and finally officially started. With the expectation of being too ideal, the Prohibition Order was set up to gradually reform the society into a healthy society, but it also triggered the most practical market problem: when the items with large demand were banned, this "gap" would There is a huge interest, and the black forces of the dark side of the society have also expanded rapidly. Since it is impossible to produce, transport or even gather alcohol in the broad daylight, these "daily activities" will naturally become completely underground. "Oh, softly whispered"--the underground bar named Speak easy seems to have sprung up in the rain, hiding in the basement, under the cover of shops, and the wine industry is booming. Under the series of social problems caused by the expansion of the underworld, the implementation of the Prohibition Order was questioned and finally abolished during President Roosevelt's term in 1933. However, these intimate bar cultures are still preserved, even worse in New York City; one of the most popular is the Raines Law Room. The name of the bar comes from a water-free order, the Raines Law, which was passed in New York State in March 1896, before the federal constitutional amendment. It is intended to restrict and control the consumption of alcohol. Alcohol services can only be provided in hotel rooms on Sunday. Inspired by this, the owner, Paul Alexandre Meurens, decorated the bar into a hotel room in the 1920s, paying homage to the era of glamour, elegance, and affection. Nostalgic wallpapers, bearskin rugs, classical mirrors and velvet long sofas are the guest actors in the Belle Époque style; the wooden wine cabinets and the sleek marble bar have a well-dressed bartender to take a break. Sending a variety of golden jade cocktails; when the curtain between the table and the table is pulled up, it seems to also re-enact the old-fashioned New York's drunken fans and lazy atmosphere. The Raines Law Room without signature facade is low-key and mysterious, and the interior space is exquisite and delicate. Therefore, you can remember that you don’t have more than six people in your line, and you can spend a little time thinking about it and avoid being embarrassed. Once you have found the location, relax and enjoy everything! Raines Law Room...

From illegal business to writing legends: "The secrets that can't be said", New York legendary bar Chumley's

By

The two-story building, which looks plain and elegant, has no signs or signs. A dark green garden door seems to whisper to you: "Strange, come in!" Chumley's is a generation in Greenwich Village, New York. Legendary, founded in 1922 by the then socialist Stanford Chumley; he secretly built a blacksmith's shop near the Bedford and Barrow corners as an underground bar – a successful period of prohibition, attracting many writers, poets, journalists and so-called “ The Lost Generation is famous for its artistic and artistic people. It was a "good secret that cannot be said." Famous novelist William. Faulkner, John. Steinbeck and Theodore. Dresser and others have written here; order a glass of wine, word by word into a scene in a curtain page. They may not know at the time that the stories they wrote will profoundly affect future generations. However, in 2007, when the old chimney collapsed, the house was badly damaged and Chumley's turned off under a sigh. A few years after the ruin, Alessandro Borgognone, the owner of the famous sushi restaurant in New York, Alessandro Borgognone, entered the partnership last year and reopened in October last year after a major renovation. "Chumley's is back!" It is like a secret whisper between hackers and art lovers, which is spread on the streets of Big Apple. The pilgrims who come here make this lane come back to life, as if by diet and drink, The history of literature in this city has been generation after generation. The height and width of the restaurant are nearly 10% smaller than the original one. It is also because the chimney collapses to a great extent. The dark green garden door is covered with a waterproof shed bracket and yellow light. The accident adds warmth to the street. Although the overall decor has been re-created, the original essence of Chumley's still exists: deep wall tones, leather old sofas, wooden fireplaces – the classic old-fashioned style, the most striking is the wall, the wall hanging The black-and-white photos on the screen; the figure of the literati’s voyages in the past was like a monstrous in the era. Nowadays, Chumley's, which blends old and new atmospheres, is not only positioned as a bar, but also a restaurant for reservations. In addition to drinks, it also provides dinner service. The meal items are simple and uncomplicated, and the signature burgers are not to be missed. Deep-fried onions, thick cheese, and barbecue sauce made with mango, coffee, etc., are succulently melted in the mouth, and are also popular items in the store. Just like the pictures that are often seen in American movies: dim lighting, a night suitable for strolling, the sound of people laughing and talking becomes background music, and the air seems to flow everyone's own mind. Looking at the photo of the writer on the wall, if you have the opportunity to visit, maybe you can try to recognize how many. Chumley's 86 Bedford Street, New York 10014.

In the era of digital Mercedes-Benz, the need for slow writing: the house tool Goods for the Study

By
Pedestrians with a sullen face and a rush of pace are the most easily captured sights in the city; Milan. Kundera's 1995 novel, La Lenteur, shows that slow fun has gradually disappeared in life. After the book was published and passed through more than ten years, the development of science and technology has continued to break through and seems to distort people's perception of time and flow. High-efficiency products, such as mobile phones and computers, inevitably rob the traditional carrier - paper and stationery, in the lives of modern people. Image Source: GOODS FOR THE STUDY Facebook. Image Source: GOODS FOR THE STUDY Facebook. There is such a stationery store in Lower Manhattan, leaving a door for people who know how to enjoy slow fun. McNally Jackson Store・Goods for the Study – opened in 2013 in Nolita; in 2017, the second branch was opened in Greenwich Village, about 20 minutes walk from the store. The small-scale storefront, in the white canopy in the row of merchants who are squatting and squatting, establish a symbol of not being humble. The polished glass window is lined with a blue-green frame, giving a fresh and comfortable visual impression. The branch is surrounded by large windows embedded in black wooden window frames. The large, deep texture is self-evident. The vast space in the store is enough for stationery lovers to linger throughout the afternoon. The range of choices covers a wide range of writing instruments, notebooks, scissors, table lamps, reproductions, etc. The most talked about is their unique taste, and the rare items that are rare elsewhere. The two partners are Sarah McNally, owner of the McNally Jackson Books bookstore, and Sandeep Salter, who was originally responsible for buying art and design books at the bookstore. The two people who have been infiltrating the relevant books for a long time naturally develop a unique vision of appreciation and attention to functionality; Goods for the Study sells them to search for sophisticated products that are both practical and designed around the world. You can create a very small space to help organize your thoughts – even if it's just a wall or a small corner. There are so many external stimuli that can improve the pattern or process of work as long as there are items in the environment that will inspire you. That doesn't even have to be a necessity for functionality, a painting can be done. If you love the elements that make up your work, you will have a more intimate and meaningful relationship with the studio. Speaking of the philosophy of Goods for the Study, Sandeep Salter...

Flowers, coffee and small things in life, this is perhaps the most lovely mini market in New York this year: MARCHÉ MAMAN

By
The Soho neighborhood in Manhattan is probably the impression of everyone's representative of the bustling New York fashion. Surrounded by boutique homes, there is another urban style hidden in it; elegant, ancient buildings, inlaid into the art of many galleries, very charming. The MARCHÉ MAMAN concept store is located in this prestigious and beautiful neighbourhood, stretching out of New York's famous café/restaurant MAMAN. MAMAN was founded by three founders from different fields and backgrounds; Armand Arnal, head chef of the Michelin restaurant in La Chassagnette in the south of France; Benjamin Sormonte, entrepreneur in the restaurant industry; and Elisa Marshall is a baked brand with a brand With the designer. The trio took their home cooking from South France and North America to bring the memories of their childhood memories to New Yorkers; since opening their first store in Soho in 2014, they have opened branches in Tribeca, Meatpacking and Brooklyn.

From the Spring St. subway station, standing outside the store is immediately attracted to the French pastoral facade. Pushing away the old and chic old wooden doors, the wood floors and beams and columns exude a quaint European atmosphere; the clean white walls reveal the texture of the bricks, and the traces of the old buildings leave the beautiful pen lines. At the corner of the shop, the lush and sloppy planting workbench makes people feel like they are in a small flower shop or grocery store in South France. After a careful look, in addition to potted plants, there are also small objects in life. From stationery, canvas bags, coffee and tea, scented candles, to beauty care products, children's clothing, hang felts, pillows, antique cutlery and furniture, and even a small kitchen with brunch, floating next door to MAMAN comes from The coffee scent of the Toby Estate in Australia is like a walk into a mini market.

New York Walk | 48 hours of "small purpose" travel, 10 pockets to go to the list

By

I tried to set the first 48 hours of travel to be completely free of "zero attractions, zero strategy, zero purpose", and I was surprised to get 48 hours of freedom to copy. After that, I tried another unconventional way of traveling: only from the New Yorkers around me, to New York, to New York, or to friends who only went once (but the taste is in line with their own). Their "Private Intelligence" - still "zero attractions", but joined different personal "recipes" as a debris strategy, "small purpose" to walk to New York. The reason why friends are friends, or friends, and the travel guides and travel books that "carefully tell you how to go to the Statue of Liberty, how to buy tickets on the 102nd floor observation deck of the Empire State Building" is that they are out For reasons such as "willing to share with you", "I hope you have fun" or "I know you will like it", etc., I will tell you, such as "Choose Friday to go to MoMA, save the ticket money just enough for Blue.

The first store is located in the Williamsburg area of ​​Brooklyn. They are hidden in wooden walls. Only the small blackboard with the menu and "cash only" is out of the way, and the presence is not conspicuous. But compared to a full-fledged American submarine sandwich or big burger, it’s really easier to wake up in the sun-filled courtyard restaurant with a delicate brunch with a Japanese gene to "fill up" your stomach. The next walk is more energetic. The House of Small Wonder is built around a 20-year-old big banyan tree; the translucent roof, the dark lake green-themed space is covered with green plants, like a small-sized greenhouse, so that the food is full when eating sunlight. Organic farm ingredients, with oriental seasonings and swaying bun, the menus of Okinawan Taco Rice (Okinawa Octopus Rice), Tsukune Don (meatballs), and the matcha's matcha latte are popular choices. ...
