ana linares - Book Publications; 1000 Designs for the Garden


Ana Linares has some terrific news about her Conversation chair, a chair she designed (if I am no misaken) during her undergrad term at Pratt.

I want to share some news with you. One of my first designs the Conversation Chair, which was selected for exhibition by Tom Dixon for 100%Design London, has been included in a book coming out on Monday published in London called 1000 Designs for the Garden. I'm so happy!!

Ana is so busy, I cannot seem to keep up with her doings; in December she wrote a response to my request for an update, and I haven't had a chance to follow up, but here it is, in her own words:

Since we last spoke I was with Mark (Goetz), wow time flies! I actually worked with Mark for about 6 months till I finished the project I was doing for him, then I worked at Quirky for a short freelance, about two months and then Knoll needed help with a project, so I was there till the beginning of December...I've been busy working, thankfully...and my bookshelf is selling well too. Umbra is developing a new idea of the shelf, hopefully will be produced (crossing my fingers), and I just started last week a full time position at Material ConneXion, as a material specialist. I am doing research and design consultancy, really interesting.
Pratt contacted me for an article that they will be writing for the next Prattfolio issue related to materials, since I am working there I guess they want to take advantage of that.

Apartment Therapy will be posting something on the event with Jonathan Adler soon, I will fwd you the link once is up.

We are very proud of your success, vim and vigor!! I look forward to hearing about the Apartment Therapy link!
