LuxuryLab presents its first-ever INNOVATION FORUM, an unprecedented event addressing the rapidly changing luxury marketplace.
Held at TheTimesCenter, the forum brought together thought leaders to share never-seen-before research, trends, best practices, and a passion for ideas.
Todd Selby is a world-renowned portrait, interiors, and fashion photographer. His popular photo project The Selby offers an insider's view of creative individuals in their personal spaces with an artist's eye for detail.
The Selby began in June 2008 as a website, www.theselby.com, where Selby posted photo shoots he did of his friends in their homes. Requests quickly began coming in daily from viewers all over the world who wanted their homes to be featured on the site. The Selby's website became so popular (with up to 35,000 unique visitors daily) that within months, top companies from around the world began asking to collaborate. These joint projects have included a large ad campaign and web project with Nike 6.0, a solo show at colette, an international ad campaign for Habitat, work for T: The New York Times Style Magazine and frequent contributions to Vogue Paris and Architectural Digest France.
Selby's first book, The Selby is In Your Place, will be released in May 2010 by Abrams.
Design of interior spaces, closely related to architecture and sometimes including interior decoration. The designer's goal is to produce a coordinated and harmonious whole in which the architecture, site, function, and visual aspects of the interior are unified, pleasing to mind and body, and appropriate to the activities to be pursued there. Design criteria include harmony of colour, texture, lighting, scale, and proportion. Furnishings must be in proportion to the space they occupy and to the needs and lifestyles of the residents. The design of such nonresidential spaces as offices, hospitals, stores, and schools places clear organization of functions ahead of purely aesthetic concerns.
