Fuori Salone – Gaia & Gino. Handsome octogenarian, Andree Putman stands between Murray Moss and his partner Franklin Getchel. It is quite an honor when Mr. Moss comes to view a collection. But then, Mme Putman is quite the star of contemporary designers. She was in town to present her Lucky tabletop collection for Gaia and Gino shown in the Sportmax boutique. “We all need luck. Luck is useful for small and great things alike.” she says. Inspired by the patterns of old Turkish figurative arts Putman has cleverly converted the famous “clover” shape into beautiful porcelains. “Lucky” will bring luck to the users, as is believed in the four leaves' auspice. Will we see them at Moss store in SoHo, New York? For those of you who have not been there, Moss, looks more like a museum , with everything locked behind glass or raised onto platforms. It’s cold. It’s white. It’s cool. The music is tense. The store offers one of the world's most sophisticated selections of furniture and objects and it’s clients range from highly informed design professionals, to celebrities, students, and tourists with maps. It’s a great store.
