Designer Snapshot: Back to the Future
January 19, 2011
Designing for 2011 is all about function, says Reading, Mass., designer Mark Christofi. â€œIt’s about who can effectively take an idea and translate it in the most spare, elegant and practical of terms,â€ he says.Â If you want to see a prime example of utility combined with beauty, Christofi suggests going to see Tron: Legacy, where the interior sets pay homage to 2001: A Space Odyssey. Â â€œI could watch it over and over. The interiors of the dad’s home are so incredibly beautiful. â€ Christofi applied his philosophy to his selection of furniture for a game room in our January/February issue.Â To see more of Christofi’s work check out this feature in one of our past issues.
