Modernism Week in Palm Springs, California 2018
Iconic Modern Style + Hunter Douglas
From February 15th - 19th, 2018, Hunter Douglas attended Modernism Week in Palm Springs, California. The annual event honored mid-century modern architecture, design, art, fashion and culture. The week consisted of more than 350 events, including discussions and presentations with leaders in the field, architecture tours via double-decker buses, home and garden walking tours, films, parties at the former homes of Frank Sinatra and Dinah Shore, along with home and building tours.
Hunter Douglas worked with the Steel and Glass House, a modern-day classic post and beam modeled after Donald Wexler’s iconic architecture and designed by Marc Sanders. The house was built in 2012 and is praised as the perfect illustration of modern contemporary desert architecture and design.
Hunter Douglas’ Silhouette ClearView™ shadings were installed throughout the home, which were the perfect solution for energy conservation and UV protection while still allowing the beautiful vista views to be visible and take center stage.
To celebrate the beautiful home, Hunter Douglas hosted a “Day of Design” event in collaboration with Traditional Home Magazine which welcomed the Palm Springs community, designers and media. Hunter Douglas was also very pleased to see their shades throughout Palm Springs in notable homes such as the famous Edris House and the Moroccan Modern. The latter represents a marvelous blend of Moroccan and mid-century modern design.
