Designer David Phoenix and critic Mayer Rus examine the dynamics of demonstrating value and creating great design in a recessionary market. Topics include the influence of mass-market design on television, the dwindling pool of high-end design magazines, and fluctuations in the market for art and antiques.

David Phoenix’s signature “California Elegance” has earned him a reputation as one of the nation’s most influential designers. An honorable appointee of the (SHRC) State Historical Resources Commission of California, Phoenix’s lifelong passion for America’s cultural and architectural heritage is clearly observed in his projects’ aesthetic.

His design talents are in-demand among the country’s highest-ranking public officials, including the Kennedy family, former Los Angeles Mayor Richard Riordan, and California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Young and creative Hollywood talents are enjoying a move toward personal and idiosyncratic solutions in design. This appreciation for all things imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete reflects a worldview that is self-referential and intuitive. It is the appreciation of the undeclared beauty that waits to be discovered.

Unlike Modernism, which solicits the reduction of sensory information, this view thrives on the expansion of sensory information. In Modernism, people adapted to the perfection of machines. Today, people are adapting to nature or natural beauty. As our global community yearns for eco-friendly systems in all things that create our environment, there is a new understanding of the relationship between design, nature, and the passion for substance and reference in our homes.
