  Boston.com / A&E / Theater/Arts / Design museum intersects art, furniture   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-12)
Museums and private collections in the United States and Europe loaned the works to illustrate the many overlaps between functional design and postmodern art.
Tuttle's star designs are "The Nature of the Gun," a furniture suite of ash and beechwood, and his "Turbulence Chair," hollow wood cubes surrounded by upholstered foam, linked at the corners like two large dice.
Judd insisted that art and design are "fundamentally different based on their makers' intentions." Burton responded by declaring that design and art were "interchangeable" and describing his work as "furniture/sculpture." Tuttle, meanwhile, "synthesized elements from both artists' positions to create unusual and intriguing functional objects," according to a wallboard.

 Guardian Unlimited | The Guardian | Dyson resigns seat at Design Museum
He has been less keen on the museum's role as a map and mirror, no matter how stylish, of design in the broadest sense of the word, including fashion, graphics, advertising and computer animation.
This has brought him into conflict with Alice Rawsthorn, the museum's intelligent and hard-working director, who believes that her role is to represent design in all its manifestations, from retrospectives of Manolo Blahnik shoes and E-Type Jaguars to expositions of the latest Rolls-Royce aircraft engines.
Ms Rawsthorn's aim has been to court a wide audience for whom the engineering aspects of design hold little immediate appeal in an increasingly post-industrial era; she believes that by drawing in audiences with colourful, magazine-like exhibitions she can encourage them to come again and to think further about design issues.

The scale of the design was also affected by machine printing, as the circumference of the new rollers was relatively small, so the size of each repeat was reduced.
Wallpaper followed the "sumptuous" design trend, and sought to imitate the gilded leathers and tapestries of fine and extremely expensive craftsmanship: "flocking," a new technology which imitated velvety textures became fashionable, as did simulated tapestry and gilded leather.
In wallpaper design, it took the form of cropped objects in the foreground, a flattened rendering of perspective, and asymmetry.

Saville’s designs provided a context that was both timeless and current which is wholly appropriate to the music.

 Las Vegas SUN: Renowned architect will design Alzheimer's center
Steelman, who did the architectural design for the final Desert Inn renovation before the fabled resort was demolished to make room for the soon-to-open Wynn Las Vegas, said Southern Nevada has lost many of its early buildings to demolition because the town was young and growing.
But, he said, having a building designed by one of the modern legends in his field could usher in more permanency to future structures that would be built in what is now a more established community.
Plans are for the center to include 13 examination rooms, offices for health care practitioners, exhibition space, a 1,500-square-foot museum of the mind and a 2,500-square-foot auditorium.
