WORKSHOP8 loves all that is modern, and for the month of October we are joining forces with our Boulder colleagues to celebrate it!
The Month of Modern (MoM) will showcase all things modern—architecture, design, lifestyle, art and culture; with a mission to “cultivate a conversation about Colorado modern, and present the Denver/Boulder region as one of the nation’s most vibrant hubs of modern design.”
Join WORKSHOP8 throughout the month, along with MoM’s founders: Modern in Denver magazine, HMH Architecture + Interiors and Annabel Media for a series of exciting and worth-while design events. Grab your favorite Eames chair, a double-shot espresso, and your i-phone calendar and make sure to take note of all the events.
October 2nd, Thursday @ Galvanize Boulder 5:30pm: “Colorado Modern Past, Present & Future”
Our very own Graham Bowman will join architect Renée del Gaudio, David Barrett of Barrett Studio Architects, and CU Professor Dick Jessor—moderated by Harvey Hine of HMH Architecture + Interiors to “talk about the impact of architects like Charles Haertling on present day modern architects; and will delve into the constructs of “Colorado Modern” style and what makes it so distinct.” RSVP here.
Week of October 6th, Monday: Modern through The Lens
Colorado’s top design photographers will submit their best work for a full week of design inspiration online. Friends and followers of the Month of Modern are encouraged to take their own photos of modern design and upload them to the MoM Facebook page for a “Like” contest. The prize is a $1,000 Molded Wood Eames Chair from Design Within Reach. Following the Month of Modern, the results will be compiled into a virtual scrapbook which will be presented as a visual representation of what Colorado modern was, is, and where it’s going.
